You have every right to feel as you do. Try not to take the torch from your mother by downplaying and minimizing what you're going through. And what you're going through is a lot! D-- IS a danger to others, no matter what your mother says. The fact that she's telling you to "get over" what he did to you and not providing you the support you need while giving him not only a second chance, but putting you and others in harms way in the process, leave you feeling betrayed & abandoned. Reaching out to your friends is fine, but they can only be supportive. You need someone professional to talk to, someone who can help you to deal with the effects of what you've endured, as well as help you gain the tools you need to move forward in your life. You don't want to die, Amanda, you just want out of the pain. I will also tell you this: though you cannot control what other people say or do, you always have control over how you respond. ALWAYS. Don't buy into the lies you being fed about your Self. The truth is you're smart, strong, resourceful and perfectly whole just the way you are. Work toward becoming independent. Treat your Self better than anyone ever has: you deserve that. If you don't have a social worker assigned to you, contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are still dealing with.

Sorry
by: rick johnson

Dear Amanda, you dont deserve what abuse you recieved. Your a beautiful person as all God's creatures are, and one day will be better. Pain seems to be the order of the day in this world we live in. One day it will be removed. Please hang in there and you can let go of the resentment of those who hurt you and focus on enjoying your life now that your able to care for yourself. There are people who care out there and we can choose to follow good examples as models. I dont have much to say to help im sure, but just wanted to let you know people care and are hurt by your pain. Hope you feel better in time. -Rick.

The Horror

Amanda, I have to be honest; your story, to be honest, is one of the most disturbing stories I've ever read. I really hope you're out of that house now and that you tell someone because no more secrets can and certainly will help put an end to the cycle of abuse and helplessness.

Never be alone with abusers again.

Again, I really hope you're out of that house now, if not, please tell someone you really trust and keep telling until someone will finally listen to you and help you.
