Let me start by saying I DO NOT want sympathy I just want you to know despite our pasts life is what you make it.
My whole life has been a complete mess, from the age of 3 or 4 I only have memories of a drunk mother, a father that was never there and me raising my younger siblings, changing feeding and caring for them. Life was very unsettled I moved around a lot. Many men were in and out of my life throughout my life.
It was only when I was 7 I discovered who my real father was when I was taken to the local bus station and was asked to go tree climbing with this stranger.
I was abused all my life by my mother and her partners. I was always an inconvenience to her. I was always last on her list, and also her career.
I wasn’t allowed a life of my own, by school leaving age I still had no friends or no loving family, no stability. I had been passed from pillar to post, attended 29 different schools. I was emotionally physically and dare I be brave enough to admit it, I was sexually abused by my mother and her partners.
But over the years of me not wanting kids but being raped by my boyfriend at the time, I had my son. That relationship was hell on earth. I made my baby just one promise, to love him forever.
Despite my past I refuse to let it affect my future, i am determined to be the best mum I can be to all four children in my home (2 aren’t mine).
Yes admittedly because of my mental health I struggle but I am doing my hardest to ensure they know they are loved and wanted and that their lives are worlds away from my painful one.
