1. Uncle Jimmy didn’t get shot accidentally. He deserved it.

“When Uncle Jimmy got shot, it wasn’t a ‘farm accident.’ However, it needed to be done. He lived.”


2. My mother beat my pregnant sister until she had a miscarriage.

“When I was 6, my sister was 16 and pregnant with twins. Our mother found out and beat her till she had a miscarriage. I think I saw it happen, I only remember flashes. My therapist says I will remember these sorts of things when I’m ready… I don’t ever want to remember them.”


3. My dad’s cousin murdered his mother and cut up her body.

“My dad’s cousin murdered his mother (my grandpa’s sister). She wouldn’t give him drug money and he snapped, stabbed her, then cut up her body. It really tore up our whole family because everyone is super close. No one used to ever talk about it but he recently got out of jail and reached out to the family which was awkward to say the least. My dad and and aunt actually met him for dinner about 3 months ago but wont tell the rest of the family. It’s all very weird.”


4. My dad died when I was 14 when we were smoking crack together.

“My dad died when I was 14 when we were smoking crack together (1995 maybe). I told the police I woke up and found him. I was crying and hysterical. dont remember if the shock took away the high or if they just couldnt tell the difference. One of my sister’s boyfriends told me that they read the report and they think they are keeping the drug use a secret from me.”
