A Mentally Distorted Boy

By a male, under 16 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of A Mentally distorted boy I am Cyrus Machafu 14 years old. I don't go to school. I don't know what actually happens with me but I just find myself not feeling right. I get out of control and act the way I want. The Home of Upendo Children's Centre is good. I am grateful to this Home. I like it to continue helping me. I pray that God will help me one day. I get my food from this Home. This Home should continue helping me because I have no parents. Sometimes I am just fine, sober but other times I don't even understand myself and what I do. I hate that state but I can do nothing on my own. I am also HIV Aids positive. Read more.
