Neglected as a child by her alcoholic mother, Dorothy is now lost in a haze of drugs, alcohol, and self-infli
Edited by aetv_rita, 1 year ago
I grew up abandoned by dope head parents where i was abused and neglected in every possible way but I am sure that Dorothy has had it worse than me. That step dad Andy is obviously the problem. It is clear that he gives no f#ck about anyone but himself.
Usually I am all for cutting off support for addicts but this guy takes the cake, he can't even pretend to care about this kid.
attention Mother! its your fault, not his not hers. kids with mothers who give a shit don't turn out to be addicts. I hope you enjoyed laying up with your pathetic husband while he talks down to your daughter right in front of you. I guess you do what you have to do to make sure you have a cozy life for yourself. you sold dorothy's soul when you brought that guy into her life. But i'm sure you know that.
Even though I never became an addict, the pain of my mother choosing a monster over me time and time again never goes away. never. it's 30 years since I lived there and I think about my bastard step dad every night.
The day Dorothy will recover and be free of the pain is when that guy is 6 ft under. My advice to Dorothy is to steal as much as possible from that dick and let him beat up your mother for it- they deserve each other.

I think the stepfather
The comment about kids who have mothers that don't give a crap about them turn out to be addicts may be true but even if you love your kids to death they can also be addicts. Sometimes you feel like you were a pretty good parent and don't know all the things that you did right or wrong and tend to blame yourself when they do turn to drugs. It is a very destructiv

i would have liked to know more about dorthy. it just seemed like "here is a girl she drinks does any drug and cuts" and we saw the abuse from the step dad thats it. we didnt see how she lived every day and the more deep thoughts from her that we see from others. im glad she is sober now and would love to see what she looks like now and how she feels and her thoughts on being sober. is she happy?
just would have liked more on her story and something even just a pic. or statment from her for the after rehab....
I don't really know how this works .... I set up an account just so I could show you support and love as a recovering addict myself. This is a huge step for me, however, I feel compelled to leave you a message if you are able to receive these.
YOU are an unbelievable person! You have absolutely amazing talent and I can tell, like myself, you are a loving and caring person. Just because we make mistakes does not mean we are bad people. I was born into a family of addiction. I was the perfect / person and Mother and never dreamt it could affect me. I had a surgery and became addicted to painkillers but with the love and words of my family and especially my lovely daughter I have fought the fight of my life. We are both parents of 1 child and have been blessed with the most precious of gifts!
Just know that you have an unbelievable family and support system. Issac's mother is a true "stand up" woman for showing her support. Your Mom may be a Firecracker" but she is, as you know, a first class Mom and loves you so much - wonderful woman! Your beautiful girlfriend is a tremendous asset to your recovery. A wonderful brother and sister that love you ... I have no siblings so I am sure you are grateful for their support:)
As far as your talent goes ... Fight for it! You've got it! You have the heart and that's what makes it work. I know you will go far! I will be waiting for that so don't let me down! I will be one of the first to buy your CD and attend your concert!
Showing love! You can do this! I have ... one day at a time:)
People can criticize the mother and the stepfather
Watching this episode made me think of my brother. Having a family who loves and cares but had no clue in how to handle the situation. You have true talent in your rhymes. A man that is truly gifted and who has a good heart. It hurts me to hear that you went to sell cocaine just to fit a persona in the rap industry, when you have rappers now who have no history of drug selling making it big. You have skills that you shouldn't put to waste. Dont quit on your dreams, with a story like yours i am sure you can rap some inspirational songs. Constantly thinking about your family and getting them out the ghetto made me think of my brother. This episode has really touch me because i can relate to it in so many ways with my own family and what we are going through. It feels good in a way that i am not alone.
I myself also open an account just because i felt the need to write to you. The way you spoke about your son, I can tell you truly care for him and i hope you can set an example and be the father he hopes for. Thank you for sharing your story.
