All children have dreams, Some childrens dreams get in the way of other childrens dreams. And some children never grow up, mentally. there are high levels of vulnerability within the female population, with various issues plaguing women such as mental illness, drug and alcohol dependencies, childhoods spent in care, experiences of sexual abuse and other traumatic life experiences. She had no positive role models in her life and did not grow up learning the skills others often take for granted. She had been victim to repeated abuse and would spend long periods out of contact. She is a very vulnerable person. Meanwhile, safe and appropriate accommodation is hard to find. She is currently living with her family, but should this come to an end, her lifestyle means that she will remain a concern of sexual exploitation. She instigates relationships with men so that she can stay in their house. She will stay until either the men cannot cope with her or have "had enough of her." Then she returns to services, hoping for help. I can't begin to imagine how she would've coped if she'd still been sleeping rough while pregnant, it would've been absolutely awful. Modern life is making us lonelier, and recent research indicates that this may be the next biggest public health issue on par with obesity and substance abuse. A recent review of studies indicates that loneliness increases mortality risk. Social pain is as real a sensation for us as physical pain; researchers have shown that loneliness and rejection activates the same parts of the brain as physical pain. Loneliness affects all of us at some point in our lives. for some, when reconnection is not easy or not possible, if a person is socially isolated, people can remain in this uncomfortable loneliness state for a number of years. For those that experience loneliness for a long time, research has shown that this impacts on their health in a greater way than smoking or being obese. Loneliness has also been linked to poor mental health. There are a number of myths regarding who experiences loneliness. Certainly all of us feel it from time to time, but it is commonly known that loneliness particularly affects the elderly who may be socially isolated due to decreased mobility and loss of friends and partners. People just gasped. Then everyone was crying because of me, I suppose, and knowing the situation that has existed. Hearing her describe this 'situation', surrounded by photographs of the son she adores, it is impossible not to wish that the rift between them could be healed. Few families go through life without a row or two along the way, but most learn to make peace eventually. I don't want to go through any more aggravation. 'Sometimes I get lonely. It's only natural. Once you lose your partner, you're on your own. People who have lost someone they love will understand that, I know.' 'People from noteworthy families do feel a sense of entitlement. 'It is true that people from an entitled background have more opportunities, maybe circumstances have made it more likely that they will abuse. 'We used to have this ethos that you just kept quiet about things in your life. I felt I was fulfilling a function of my mother who was missing. It was my duty, to some extent, to be in the position I was in and that is the reason I did not resist. 'He never said it in outright terms - we never discussed what he was doing in any terms whatsoever - but it was implicit that I was helping him emotionally.' However, he has repeatedly stated that he felt the story needed to be told, after he revealed the abuse to his mother and family doctor as a young boy, only for it to be swept under the rug.
