According to the charts that I have read, which I picked up from the hospital 16 years ago, the doctors and child care workers said that I repeated everything that was said to me. I couldn't remember anything about that, but I do remember some things from that institution that took place.
I can remember getting hit over the head by a little girl who was about the same age as me. I can remember screaming after the incident happened. Luckily the child care worker had stopped her. I can also remember the medication in which I received as a child. I can also recall the bitter taste it had to it.
I also read in the charts that I had a brain exam done to me when I was 4 and a half years of age. It was called an eeg. I think that I can remember the procedure. I was restrained down on the bed at the providence care hospital.
I was forced to take some blood work at the hospital as well. I screamed as I saw the nurse take some blood out of my arm. The good thing about it was after she was done, I was given a chocolate bar. One time I fought so hard when my child care workers took me to get some blood work that they gave up.
As I got older, and attended public school, I got bullied for being shy, and keeping to myself. I was also used by a few schools whom I attended high school with. They wanted money from me all the time, and I didn't have a job yet accept a paper route.
When I was in my late teens to my early 20s, I felt worthless, so I resorted to alcohol. There was a Christian guy who met from a dating service, and I fell in love with him, and he wasn't in love with me. I saw that he was in love with someone else. I also felt suicidal, and I told him that.
In my late 20's I had a baby, and I was not drinking anymore. i had boyfriend at that time who was the father. I few years later i went back to school, and I was working part-time. I received a college certificate in arts and science. Most of the courses I took were in writing, and computers in word, and data processing.
At the present time, I feel that I have to get a fresh start for myself, and not be so bitter about my past, and move forward. I am taking sessions once a week called "Freedom Session" for people who had addictions to alcohol or who had been abused.
It makes me feel better that I am not alone, and I can relate to some of the problems that people have had.
