    Amazing I scored 81 I believe that I stands alone and stand as One . My Father was a controlling Man but as a Wildchild I would stand up for myself even if I was scolded . My Mum was always very critical of Me and she was always entitled to her opinion this was her way as she was critical of the whole time she was alive . I nursed My Mum until she passed in December 2018 . In the end she was proud of my stand and my wild side . She always wanted a girly girl but alas I was a tomboy.
