Ever since they separated, my life has been difficult and when they got divorced, my life got even harder. I have been to five different schools within two years. Every school that I went to, someone would always find out that my family has issues and that I don’t have the best lifestyle.

My “friends” also spread the word that I was just like my mother.…
