I had a very troubled childhood and actually changed school four times before I finally completed high school. My father was/is a psychopath and psychologically mistreated me with bullying, intimidation and threats. He never physically hurt me, just messed with my head.
It has been really tough – I have suffered from deep depression and battle with it every day, but I know that I am not the same as him. He does not define who I am. I am stronger than that and am going to use my energy into getting a degree in biology.
