I just found out about this site today. I am 29 years old. I have been an atheist for most of my life. I don't know what happened, but one day when I was about 10 years old, things started to come together. I realized the church I was attending made no freakin sense at all. I studied various mythologies in school, and on my own. It wasn't long after this I made up my mind and told my parents. This greatly upset them, but I was never able to force myself to believe something as insane as the bible. The more I learn, the harder of a time I have understanding how anyone could believe it!
In my life I have seen no proof of god and have decided that IF there is one, he hates me. I cannot imagine a loving god throwing so much shit my way in so little time. I am a single (divorced) mom of 3 kids. The youngest (3 next month) is in speech therapy. The middle is autistic, and is about to be assessed for bipolar disorder and depression. He is only 5. My oldest is 6... she seems ok lol. I have also been diagnosed with hep c, and did the year long treatment for it. My liver was at a stage 2 fibrosis, at 26 years old. I also deal with depression, though am currently doing well off meds :) I am an Army veteran and currently attending college to become a speech therapist. I am also raising my 6 year old nephew.
So....hi! Please introduce yourself to me.
