This explains so much...

As I was reading articles here and there this morning, I came across this one. https://sparkpeo.hs.llnwd.net/e1/res
It is about how kids who were abused or neglected either physically or emotionally are more prone to headaches and migraines as adults. I was never one to get headaches until around 2001 when I was diagnosed with migraines. Also, the article says how emotionally abused females are also more likely to get endometriosis and irritable bowel syndrome, also things I deal with. I always knew my parents treated me like crap, but right here is the proof. My mom was an alcoholic for most of my growing up years (she quit when she became pregnant with my now 18 year old brother), so she was never around and when she was, she never paid me much attention. My dad was a jerk most of the time. I was never good enough. I never did anything right in his eyes (and yes he has stated this fact many times). I have never had a compliment about ANYTHING from this man...just put downs. This is why we do not talk much and do not get along for the most part. So it is just really interesting to see they helped contribute to my many health issues. And dad says he never caused any of my issues (depression, anxiety, low self esteem, etc). Well sorry dad...looks like for once...YOU are WRONG!!
