You were given a raw deal. Your parents are so twisted and screwed up that they don't even know how to take care of themselves, let alone be parents to you. Just don't for one second this gets you off the hook for doing something with your life. YOU decide your future; it's not dependent on having been raised with loving parents. YOU decide whether or not you are going to be a psychologist; it's not based on whether or not your parents did their job. YOU decide whether or not you're going to be a productive member of society and possibly turn pain into power; no one else decides that for you. I can tell by the way you write that you are strong, stronger than you probably even realize. Yes, you've had setbacks, but you've survived. And as a survivor you have more potential than you give yourself credit for. You're right that males are raped. And you're right that males have eating disorders. And you're right that you shouldn't have had to grow up the way you did. What you do NOW is up to you. Reach out for any resources that are out there, Alex. Resources that will help you get back on track. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Such cruelty
by: Anonymous

Alex, what your so-called mother and her slimy 2nd husband did to you was pathetic and ungrateful because they are truly twisted, sick, confused and sadistic in their own ways of thinking...not to mention control freaks and religious fanatics. You deserved so much better than what they did to you; they didn't deserve you in their lives. Oh, and your sadistic excuse of a mom is wrong. You are not worthless; you are worthy of love, dignity and respect, all of which you have been sadistically denied of. You are not hatable; you are lovable. Don't believe any of those lies that she was spewing. She doesn't even know how to love even herself; all she ever knew is hate, so she should've known better and loved and cherished you. Oh, and it's quite sadistic and cowardly for that beast of a woman to bash you against the wall because only a coward will do such a thing like that to such a helpless little boy you once were. Oh, and smiling, laughing and even calling her friends and bragging about your suffering really shows me how sadistic, uneducated and ignorant she really is. Oh, and I am just as disgusted by her reactions towards you getting raped; I hate women who choose men over their own children because children should always come first. Again, that sicko of a mom is a really sadistic psychopath and she should go to prison with her slimy 2nd husband for all those terrible and sadistic crimes they committed against you because you did nothing wrong. You are not to blame; in fact, those sociopaths are to blame. You were the child; they were the adults; they had all the power and misused that power over you. Oh, and please don't cut yourself or commit suicide because suicide is the permanent answer to many problems and doing so will only let those beasts win, so please don't do that; instead, try counselling. I really hope that you're in a safe place now and that, again, you try counselling.

i'm sorry
by: Tim L.

I can relate to what you say; the betrayals, failures, lies, insensitivity, cruelty, and abuse you were subjected to is absolutely criminal; these people stole a great deal from you. You can choose a real family, one that you make yourself up of friends that have no blood relation to you; you don't need your terrible, ignorant monster of a mother. You don't need to spend any time or emotion on sexist people that deny your truth on the basis of stereotypes; boys do get raped, boys do have eating disorders, and in much greater numbers than 'statistics' say because the culture in general is less sensitive to the plight of boys and less encouraging of us to report and get help, treatment. I'm one of them along with you.

You can still do some of those things you listed; get away from this poisonous "family" and don't let anyone tell you that you owe them anything, that you need them in your life or have to forgive. It may take some time, but things can get better for you. You can clear their pollution out of your life. Take heart.
