Thank you, Kitty Hannah Eden, for your compassion and understanding. You are right, starting off right from childhood being bullied by my mother (it was just the two of us, as my parents divorced when I was three), and teased and bullied in school, I had very few friends. As I got older, those friends where teased and bullied for being friends with me and over time I lost them. I took solace in reading, writing, sewing, crocheting, and hanging out with the neighborhood dogs.
I know I keep saying this, but I’m still working on myself. Hugs
