Hardships in your life? adult content

What have been the most dramatic things you've faced in your life? I myself was sexually abused as a child, and as a result had a child at 14.
I had a lot of counseling to get me back on track, I got married when I was 18, had two children and now currently pregnant with a third from my husband. He passed away a few months ago. He'll never see his new child. My eldest son also has autsim so that has a big impact on everyones life.
I'd love to hear other peoples hardships and I can offer a lot of sympathy :)

  • It's probably a 3-way tie for me. I was abused mentally, physically and sexually by my mom and step dad for several years when I was a child. My step dad drugged and raped me. And I lost my grandpa while I was pregnant with my first and so far only child (he and my grandma had adopted me when I was a teenager to get me out of my parent's abusive house and my entire life he was like my father).

  • I have been very lucky in life! I wish we had more money, but that is superficial. Everything else in my life is really wonderful.

    I am so sorry for your hardships. I hope you will be OK. I could not go through what you are going through right now...lots of HUGS!

  • I have an anxiety disorder of sorts. I hate going anywhere with large crowds and I refuse to let my daughter go "have fun" at a carnival or county fair (she's 4). I've had anxiety about losing her since we brought her home and they haven't gotten any better.

    I also have mild depression and I'm beginning to think that it's genetic; my mother, half-sister (same mom), and maternal grandmother have it as well as my half-brother (same dad). This sky rocketed after I had my daughter and is how my anxieties got worse.

    I think I was molested when I was a young girl but I didn't know what it was and it only happened once. My sister & I were at a friend's house playing in their den. Her dad was home (creepy looking guy) and he would touch us on our torsos (nowhere else). I haven't thought about that in years and I feel terrible about her now and hope she found some help.

    I was also a cutter and haven't made a cut since 7/4/02.
