My Lovely Life
Looking back on my life, I’ve realized that in some cases I’ve had it easier than others but also much harder than others as well. My life started out pretty normal, born and raised in Wichita, Kansas. I was born at Wesley Hospital, to my mother Tiffany Shearhod, and my father John Doub III. Both of which loved together at the time off of 55th and Broadway on the corner, in a trailer. For as long as I can remember I lived with them. Then one day after a Christmas party, my dad decided to drive home after he had been drinking. This in turn caused him to get into a car wreck which ended up killing someone. He was sent to prison for 10 years. For those ten years, I went

During middle school I played track, doing discus and shootout. Both of those took a toll on my knees because I also played softball and soccer. Once into the eighth grade, I thought I met the love of my life… stupid I know. But he and I were together a year and a half. Without him I wouldn’t come to realize just how much I needed to change as a person. He was my first love and the guy I trusted with my life, he ended up cheating on me. Which that was the end of that relationship. But now to this day we are still friends. During my first year of high school, I had three total surgeries. The first one came just three days after starting freshman year. That surgery set me so far back in school that I struggled to keep good grades for the rest of first semester. During the first semester of high school, I was dating a guy that was a senior. He treated me so good, Lays opened the door for me, helped me get around since I was still unable to walk. He treated me like a princess. He taught me that all guys are not the same. Once I was able to walk again things started to go a lot smoother. With the struggles, I had my first semester of freshman year, I realized that I needed to get my butt in gear if I wanted good grades. Once the …show more content…
Then on April fool’s day of freshman year I went in for my second knee surgery on the opposite leg. Then it was back to physical therapy for what seemed like forever. Once that surgery was done and over with and I was all recovered the rest of the year went smoothly. Sophomore year went smooth so nothing outrageous there. Junior year is when things got crazy. I met my son’s dad over Instagram. We hung out and dated a month. The very first time I had sex, I ended up pregnant with his baby. I quickly left him because he was controlling. When I told, him I was pregnant, things went downhill. He had a tom of his friends messaging me calling me every name in the book, and even telling me that I don’t deserve to have a baby because I left him. A lot of the time I kept everything to myself. The first couple weeks of being pregnant were hell, dealing with his friend’s drama. But once I set everything straight they didn’t bother me again. I needed up removing myself from campus and starting online school. That was a big failure on my part. I ended up failing all my classes but one. January of the following semester I started at the Haysville

    I had lost some confidence talking to boys, even though I still maintained good friendships with a couple of the ones I had already known. My parents were appalled by the idea of dating and they had a strict rule of “no dating until you’re sixteen.” I cannot say that I kept that promise, but I can definitely recall the amount of times I would sulk and beg to go on dates. My sophomore year was the most challenging school year I had experienced. My parents encouraged me to take advanced, college level classes and pressured me to get my driver’s permit, which I had failed a solid two times. With that being said, stress had built up along with an exceptionally limited social life.…

    Four years ago, halfway through the seventh grade year, I attempted suicide for the first time. The cause of the attempt was nothing except for the fact was that I was severely and heavily bullied throughout seventh and eighth grade and I was not emotionally stable for any of the events that occurred.

Elise and I were inseparable, until as most friends do, her and I had started to drift apart as I gained more friends.…

    My 7th grade year I was playing flag football in my p.e class, I went up for the ball, caught it and fell. I went to the doctor and I dislocated my shoulder but it popped back in place when I got up so it was swollen and really hard to move.
