Background Information

         Everyday life is a constant battle. Things have not been as extreme lately, but my childhood wasn't exactly the greatest. An alcoholic father who worked three jobs and vented his anger on his kids, and a mother who was addicted to cocaine didn't make the situation any better. I lived in eleven different places in the first 8 years of my life before my parents were able to stabilize. Another 8 before the abuse stopped when I finally fought back.

         I had my first job at the carnival when I was thirteen, making fifty dollars a day. Mom convinced me that she needed every penny for the mortgage. This went on for about 4 years until I found out she was blowing it up her nose, at which point I stopped paying her all together. But throughout the years mom sobered up and found god. Dad developed stage 2 diabetes, left the big picture. Still an alcoholic. But we sometimes get together for a drink here and there.
