When I was very little, around 5 months old, my father had a stroke that paralyzed his left side. This changed his whole life but also impacted mine. I don’t remember my dad being healthy. I have always seen him walking with a cane and needing a brace around his leg to support himself. I remember him falling and having seizures every so often. As a little girl this scared me because I had no idea what was happening. All I could see was someone hurting and I didn’t know what to do about it. I was a very scared little girl. For as long as I can remember I have always been a very shy and quite person. I am an only child and there weren’t that many kids in the neighborhood, so when I was younger I would play by myself. Since I played alone with stuffed animals and fake cash registers, I never learned how to be outgoing and talkative as a little girl. I didn’t learn great …show more content…

    I got a lot worse in that period of my life. Look at me now, then picture the complete opposite of me, and that was me last year. I was one of the rudest people you’d ever meet, I skipped most of my classes, I would leave school whenever I felt like it, and if anyone ever made me mad I would either try to fight them or talk to them so poorly that they would cry.

I had lots of friends in elementary school, but I lost them all in sixth grade. My loneliness was one of the major contributing factors to my depression.…
