Tell your psychologist . . .
by: Darlene Barriere - webmaster

Amanda, I urge you to tell your psychologist what you so bravely shared here. She is in a much better position to get you the help you need than I am, or any of my visitors are. What you described may be controllable, but you have to tell so that the medical care you need can be provided. Treat yourself better than anyone else has; tell your counsellor. You really are worth it, Amanda, you really are.

Don't Go
by: Kaleigh

It's hard, that mask.
Outside I'm stotic and unfeeling, it protects me from the outside world and other people around me.
Inside...inside I'm hurt and scared and so very afraid.
Talk, write, draw, express what you're feeling somehow, it helps a little, releases those toxins locked up inside like the Holocaust smoke.
But know this, I understand, I care, I'll be here if you need me, I'm behind you and I don't want to see you go.

God loves you

Hi, how are you? My name is joann and i was sexually abused by my grandfather for a long time. I did'nt tell my mom until seven years later. I fell your pain and hope you can over come your troubles! My advice to to you is trust no man but god.god is want you need in your life! God puts us in situations for reasons, all we can do is thank him for us not being homeless on the street, no food,no water,no clothes, or shelter! You need to be strong and have faith in yourself and in him.thank him for each day of you getting out of bed.i know how your feel in your situation.i know you are hurting inside and out. But call on god. Ask for help and forgiveness! Please hear me out i will have you in my heart and prayers!dont take what god has given to you, and thats life! Dont look at the negative but look at the little things like your life, your health,your two legs! I love you my sister and will have you in my deepest prayers. Please baby girl think before you react on life. Dont please take your life away! God loves. I will have in my heart. Love joann

tell
by: Alyssa Curtis

I know it must be hard, but you must tell. I am 12 yrs old. I do not get beat or anything. I am so sorry for you. I just wanted to learn more about child abuse and I did.

Same here
by: Anonymous

I read your story and I am in shock because I feel the same as you.I have attempted suicided and I get that same wanting to hurt myself reaction. My entire life is a lie. Every friend I have and every person I meet seems so fake. I have never told anyone because I don't think they would believe me. They see me as super happy all the time. I live in an imaginary world and I pretend nothing bad happens to me. It helps me get through life. I know that is bad though so I am happy you are seeing a counselor. I am in the process of telling right now and trying to get out of my moms house. This is the scariest thing I have done. I hate my mom too but I am hoping if I get out of my house, maybe someday i can forgive her. I know your situation is probably worse than mine but I still feel for you. My story is on this site at Is it child abuse if I'm not bruised or injured?

Take care of yourselve because no matter what you do, you don't deserve this!!!!!!
