Without hyperbole or exaggeration, I was inspired to write a post about my family and in short:
Shameless is a tv show about a white trash family with screwed up parents where the oldest girl is the only authority figure. She plays mom, cook, counsellor to her bipolar mom who refuses treatment and her drunk dad.
They had me knocking down the door to the guidance counsellor’s office when I was fifteen. I was attempting to negotiate my way into government custody. I was unsuccessful.
In a house like that…you have to wait to have your angsty “am I or am I not a lesbian?” That comes when you move out on your own and discover the question and the answer to all life’s problems…alcohol!
