Hello I’m Taylor and I’ve been battling with depression since I was 13. I am now 20.
I have been through a lot. I found out my mother was cheating on my father. Then two months later my father found out she was cheating. My mother threw my Dad out of the house for no reason.
The same year my grandfather was hospitalized with all types of health problems, and my Nana, Aunt, and cousin all developed cancer. Fortunately, my Nana, and Aunt survived, unfortunately my cousin died last month from Angiosarcoma (A rare cancer of the lining of the blood vessels). My grandpa died around the same time as my dad and mom got divorced.
The same year I was sexually assaulted. I had the police involved, the guy who assaulted me, my mom, my mom’s boyfriend, the principal, the assistant principal, and the guidance counselor all in the room when I was telling my story; he never got charged, and this happened in 2011, and my case is still pending. As for the next month, I went on a date, and I got raped in the car.
In 2013 at the beginning of the year my mom and her boyfriend went up to New Hampshire (her boyfriend has a trailer up there), and she asked him a simple question, and she kept on asking him and asking him, until he full on punched her in the face. Needless to say when my mother came home her jaw was all black, and blue. Now three weeks ago my mom’s boyfriend and my mom’s best friend went to a restaurant and my mother didn’t know. She recently and violently dumped him.
Now, I’ve got my life back on track I am on a balanced dosage of medication, my doctor over-medicated me, so I was all over the place before, but I feel like a brand new person now!
