PLEASE stop with the italics and capital letters. It doesn't add anything to the story. It doesn't convey extra meaning. It doesn't generate more emotion. It is, quite frankly, extremely annoying.
Now, on a happier note, this story is flat out cringe-worthy. I do realize that, unfortunately, this is a way of life for some people, but why advertise it? It's not like we don't know it happens. It's not going to make it disappear and never return. It's not a story people want to keep coming back to, in my opinion. Especially if it takes you six months to update it.
You are a FANTASTIC story teller. I'm a faithful follower of yours. This one, however, I'm done with.
