@Romad and Sak - No, she was never diagnosed with anything. But she had control issues, obviously. And she didn't care about him in a loving way. He's never been hugged by either parent. They never told him they loved him. I'm amazed Steve is sane. He excels at work, he's a sweet, kind, lovin' guy, and he's smart and creative. He has a few control issues and anxiety over making decisions. But that's probably because he wasn't allowed to.
His Dad is bad too. The first time I ever met the man he told me "We know Steve lies to us all the time." The thing is, Steve was good. He didn't smoke, didn't drink, didn't do drugs. He's worked since he was 12 years old. He paid half of his tuition at Tyler School of Art. There is nothing about him that would warrant the kind of behavior they displayed regarding him. I was his first girlfriend even. He was 20. We hardly see them now. They make us both uncomfortable.
9/11 "Truthers" get on my nerves. I don't personally believe in 100% of what the government says, but this is something that's so elaborate, it would be near impossible to pull off a conspiracy like it. The conspiracy theorists could go back in time and re-witness the events for themselves, and STILL hold on to their precious theories. By all means, ask questions. Definitely question what your government feeds you, especially if it seems a tad "off". But please, when you've been proven wrong, admit defeat! In the words of my boyfriend, how hard is it to believe that someone or some group rather could hate the U.S. and our way of life so much that they could attack us? IT HAPPENED. Learn from it. Grow from it. Grr. Okay. Just finished watching a documentary on "truthers"... Got me going a little bit. They did a bunch of rag-tag tests on what could have happened. There was a time where I, too questioned the legitimacy of the attacks, but in the end, in my opinion. the theories didn't really add up with what happened. Okay I'm done. I had to say something.
