"My Mother's Ungiven Testimony" by Cathy Macon makes me relate to all the abuse fanfictions I've read. It all starts with a problem that manages to damage a person's mental state. Some relish the feeling of harming themselves while others drown themselves in drugs and alcohol. I understand what may trigger the depression but I'm a little puzzled at the methods they take to cope with their misery. It's a big help to know people's thought process as they're going through tough situations.
