DANNY MARTIN: I’m glad you’re not here, because it was the most important time in my life.
I never knew what it was like to be a virgin, but the truth is, I was raped.
The thing that got me to that point, it wasn’t just a lack of education.
It was the fact that I was never raped.
I was abused.
I had to go to therapy for years.
I went through that cycle, and I still go through it now.
But I can’t be too judgmental about it.
It didn’t stop happening, because I kept saying to myself, I’m not ready to go through this.
I can take it.
So I thought, If I’m ready to take it, why don’t I go ahead and do it?
And that was when I started thinking about having children.
It wasn’t until the day I was diagnosed with leukemia that I realized how much it meant to me to have children.
That’s when I decided I wanted to have a child.
I started researching it, I went to my doctors and everything.
I talked to my girlfriend about it and I was like, I don’t know what to do.
I thought about it, and that was it.
I didn’t think I’d ever be able to have kids, so I was pretty sad when I had them.
But then one day I got a call from my doctor, and he said, Well, I guess you know what, I’ve had this conversation with your ex-boyfriend.
And he was like What?
What is it?
What are you going to do?
And I was just like, Oh my God, what are you talking about?
He was just very, very emotional.
He said, I think you need to have an abortion.
And I just said, What?
Oh my gosh, what?
But then he said I think that’s the way to do it.
He’s telling me what to be ready to do, and it’s about a month into the pregnancy, and all of sudden, I hear that I can go ahead with the abortion.
That was it, really.
It’s really just the beginning of the end.
And then I’m sitting there thinking, Wow, I never thought this would be possible.
I mean, I thought this was going to be another one of those things where I would be like, What the hell are you saying?
It’s like a dream.
And that dream ended when I got pregnant.
And it ended the day of the abortion, and everything that followed was a nightmare.
It got so bad that I thought I was going insane, and then I got to the point where I just couldn’t take it anymore.
So that’s what I did, which is, and just like any good parent, I called my sister, who is the daughter of my best friend, and she told me, I got the call, I gotta get to work.
And she told my mother that I have a miscarriage.
And my mom, who was also a mom of a son, was like Oh my god, she’s pregnant too.
And at that point I was crying like a baby.
And so that’s how I ended up at the hospital.
And they had to put a mask on my face, and they put my dad’s face on my head and my mom’s face in her head.
So they put a corset on me, and my father had to get a mask for me and put a hood over his head.
And all of a sudden, my life went into limbo.
And the thing is, my mom was so upset about it that she had me put her on a wheelchair.
I don, I didn’ know what I was doing, but she was trying to help me get through the whole thing, and by the time I got out of the hospital, I had a lot of issues.
And what happened to me was that I couldn’t walk, and when I was a kid, I always had a crutch to carry me around, and at some point I started having to go on crutches.
And as I got older, I realized that I didn, I couldn’ use crutchers.
And after I got into college, I could barely walk, I wasn’t walking at all.
So, it was a tough road for me, but I think I learned from it.
And when I finally graduated college, it’s hard to believe that I’m now 30 years old.
But it has been really a blessing, because all of my issues have been resolved.
I’m an extremely good parent.
I know how to deal with my own emotions, I know when to be kind and sensitive, and the biggest thing I’ve learned about myself is that I love my family, and if they’re not loving me, then they don’t
