    So when I was a teenager I was in teen psych wards for 2 and a half years. When I got out Mesquite High School did not want me to go there because they said I just needed to go back to the psych ward.

    My sister told me I should run away from home and that my family didn't want me. I couldn't work much except a few fast food places I quit fast, my parents thought I might be better off in the psych ward.

    When I joined up with the old-timey dress code Pentecostal church that taught me I had to speak in tongues to get saved, I made the church my family.

    They were like my brothers and sisters. I saw a special on reelz about the Manson family. One of the women was a teenager when she joined and said she had been in foster homes,
    she said she had Foster Home Syndrome, she wanted to make everyone her family and made the Manson family her family.

    I honestly think that's what I had. I had never heard that but it's interesting. I am wondering if anyone else has had experiences with it and how much is the church and any religion affected by it?

    Such a syndrome reminds me a book called Vidas que pasan.(by Constancio C. Vigil)

    Orphan

    That child has no mother... just look at him. The eyes of the orphans look at each other in a different way... as if they were looking for her!
