How KISS Changed My Life

Posted on 06/08/2013
Hi my name is Macey and I'm 21 years old. I have been a KISS fan since I was 11 years old. How did me becoming a fan and you changing my life started. Well here how everything all started with KISS. I was 11 years old, only started first year day returning to school as a Year 5 student, a few weeks later was when I was told by my parents, my brother who at the time was 10 months old was diagnosised sick with a very rare illness Immunodefiency Disorder, due to that event was when I developed depression and was severely bullied for it all. I started going through my parents CD cabinets to find any depressing music I could listen to, to help me let my emotions out and thats when I found your CD and soon as I started playing that CD I felt so different, connected, music that expresses the same things I had felt and it was the first amazing experience of my life. Years gone by I am now 13 years old and started my first year of high school without a doubt I again became victim to bullying, I was bash and beaten up everyday, I would come home refuse to tell my parents what been going on because your music was the only thing that was helping feel peace calm and relaxed, than a few months past by my parents went to quicky go down to the shops for 5 mins, within those 5 mins there was a fire in the house thanks to your music giving me bravery and confidence I managed to safe my brothers and sister as well as myself and escaped alive, even though I was badly trumatized and still am to this day, I kept myself together and strong and pushed through day to day, but the problems at school got worst and bullying became a personal attack targeting me about the house fire. By the year 2008 when I was in Year 11 I started doing wrong things because of the pain and suffering from being bullied and beaten up day after day start taking things that were bad for me and at the end of the day I just wanted to die. Now 5 years later in 2013 my life has completely changed because of the band and your music. Even though I suffered so much darkness in my life through schools, illnesses and other things, my life has now changed for the better and never looking back. My brother has fully recovered from his illness, I have a job, got my drivers licence, met the true love of my life, me and boyfriend have a 1 year old baby girl Anastasia, engaged to the man of my life and own my own home. I ended up with everything and my bullies ended up with nothing. This how you have changed a sad little girl to becoming a strong woman, beautiful fiance and wonderful mother and that is why I love you all so much and how much your music has changed my life. I didnt get to see you in Adelaide but one day maybe on day when you guys do come back I'm going to give you all big hugs and thank you all becoming and being the greatest inspiration of my life. Speak Soon Kind Regards your true and faithful fan Macey xoxo
