A Disease Suffered by a Family After getting my spanking from not eating the food on my plate from dinner, I sat in my bedroom on a cold, rainy, dark night and pondered why do people get sick? Why do some diseases have a cause but no cure? I lived with a family member that suffered from a very depressing, harmful, and excruciating disease. One of the hardest challenges I have ever had to do in my life is watching my stepdad that was so close to my heart, slowly lose the person he once was. It changed the person I knew by transforming my step-dad into a monster, as well as changing the family members caring for him; therefore, I learned life-changing lessons from the memories I went through with him, and how to grow as a person from them.

How can those teachers be like slavemasters? Do they really think anyone can cope with making a working comparison between a 400-page novel and its film adaptation overnight? Ive never thought that possible but still decied to try my chances.
