They’re something else aren’t they? They come in many shapes,sizes,colors.
Well, I’ve lost faith in my fellow man,women,child too.
See, I’m African American,female and I feel polarized,outcast, and that no one in this World gives a good goddamned about me.
I’ve good reason to feel this way.
See, as a little girl I’ve attended the ever awful public school system only to be:
And expected to perform below par of my fellow students
Teachers were lazy & incompetent.
I receive zero attention.
Then I graduate from High School miracle of miracles and I join the good old United States Army. And its in the Army I feel that I will get guidance,structure,displine.
What I got instead was lots of verbal abuse that questioned my intelligence usually by one junior grade officer who went by Lt. Gray I don’t give a shit about using her name since she didn’t give a shit on how she treated me. Shit the way I saw it Lt. Gray had it all. A college degree, a career but she still wanted to torment me.
And there were other abuses I suffered while I served in the good old military. But no one cared.
So I get out & go back home I move in with Mom, and she doesn’t want me there. Why? because she is selfish and doesn’t care. Add to the mood swings & what you have is a combustible situation.
By now I’m ill prepared for civilian life. I so wish I would have did things differently. Getting out of the Army was a good decision, because the Army SUCKED! I just should have done things differently. It would have been nice to have had a supportive family but I didn’t. So I was basically adrift. I didn’t want to be, but that’s how it turned out. I’m not particularly proud of that. It’s not something I would have preferred, I wanted to have a family to go to in times of support, but the people concerned were so damned self centered that if my hair were on fire & I stood in front of them that they would absent mindedly give me gasoline to put it out.
That’s how clueless my Mom & Dad (who divorced when I was 2 living in separate states Dad remarried, Mom seeing her off again on again boyfriend) were.
Abuse, being told that I would amount to nothing, being told I was stupid, then having no one believe in me, well my life really hit the skids.
It’s particularly devastating to go through life ignored or going through life & your the butt of jokes or going through life & your bullied, humiliated after a while especially when you’ve gone through years & years of this you get REAL DEPRESSED! You give up & stop believing anyone is nice.
I don’t like people now, I just don’t.
After the racial hate crime that happened which I wrote about on here which is called PTSD Aug 6, 2010 I don’t trust no goddamned one. I don’t know just how long I’ll feel this way, it will take a real live nice human being to convince me otherwise. I really miss how I used to be, I miss that person. However I am thinking of getting either a small dog or cat. That will really go a long way to help me out of my ever increasing depression. Remember you all who read this: Depression is a very real illness, when you encounter nothing but hostility it feels like your constantly being kicked in your gut. Understand? What I really need is a miracle. Perhaps it isn’t too late to believe that it could happen for me. I sure hope so.
So by now I ‘m reaching out but not expecting anything. I’ve learned not to. Plenty of disappointment has marred my life. Once I was trusting,believed in my fellow man, I was positive & saw only good things. Now its an absolute struggle. Now I don’t even look forward to waking up in the morning.
I would like so much to get support.
But I won’t hold my breath cause I know that you all out there could care less.
