Child Abuse Story From Kelsie:

I am sixteen years old. I now live with my father and I am still dealing with the effects of my abuse.

My brother started to sexually abuse me when I was four. It stopped when I was seven, but it never really went away. My mother was always working to support us, and my father left home when I was young. My mom had no time for my emotions, so I had to learn to suck it up and live with it. I was always doing things wrong. My homework was never perfect enough. I never cleaned enough. I wasn't any help. I wasn't worth anything.

I finally got away from my abusive environment, and I am slowly dealing with it. I still have trouble expressing any emotions that are not approved by the people I am around. I have trouble crying and expressing my true beliefs. I have been into drugs and drinking, though I am now out of that world. I did smoke, but I have now quit. I have attempted suicide several times and I am a self-abuser. I can seriously confuse a person by simply speaking what I truly think. So, while I am not yet recovered, I am recovering. I hope to overcome my emotional obstacles soon and keep getting better.
