Here are some of the comments:
"And I thought my childhood was worse . Bruh when I was growing up I always ate leftovers, Like when people ate and got full then left some food. They'd be compiled and put into a dish for me to eat. I only ate freshly cooked meals when my parents were around."
"I guess by beating me up he made a man out of me instead of making a kid out of me, he used to insult me when we were eating so that I could stop eating,but whoaaa,never was he so wrong,even today as a 30 year old man,if my wife insults me when we are eating,I don't give a damn."
"My uncle still suffers from severe ulcers up to today because of being starved as a child by a wicked step mother. He doesnt eat heavy foods like pap , just very light meals like salads, sandwiches and he’s so tiny as a result… dont think one can or is meant to forget."
