Keep working at it and remember the saying "the harder I work, the luckier I get". I heard one of the top women's basketball coaches (also a woman)talking about how the most driven and best women atheletes were women that came from single family homes. She said they worked harder and did better because they grew up having to do things for themselves and not expecting others to do it for them. It is great to have parents that help, but when you get lemons, sometimes you can make great lemonade!!

This is the very best advise on this page. Run and don't ever come back to this cesspool, Whale fare baby! And don't wish you were someone else. You are sweet and beautiful in your heart. You seem to have a good head on your shoulders. Use it, baby. Run and seek the help and advise of successful people. Good luck! You can do it!
