My name is Tessa Janine Mathews, but I prefer to be called TJ even though I'm a girl. A girl with a masculine name, I know, but it's more of a gender neutral name.
I was born with two drug addicts, who just happened to be my two abusive parents.
Yeah. They'd verbally abuse me, and sometimes, if it was one of those bad days, they'd physically abuse me.
But I didn't call the cops because.. Well.. I didn't want to be thrown in an orphanage or adoption center or whatever the hell you want to call it.
But I ended up running away from home, the cops found me, an eighteen year old girl on the street, wandering around aimlessly.
When they asked me where I live- because, well, I looked like complete and utter shit, I told them I don't have a home so they brought me here. To this stupid orphanage, or what I like to call hell.
Well, I know you've got better things to do, so I'll end the letter here before it gets too long.
