Amy, all anyone who visits this site can do is offer you validation and encouragement. Please contact one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially. You wrote that you're from "Vic". If Vic is Victoria, Australia, then contact the Australian Kids Help Line at 1800 55 1800. KHL have counsellors who will listen to you and discuss your options. The service is available 24 hours a day for children, youth and young adults between the ages of 5 - 25. Their counselling services are free, confidential, and you can remain anonymous.

The sooner, the better...Darlene is right!
by: Anonymous

Amy, a family that is as sick and sadistic as yours had been to you really shouldn't have children in the first place if they're incapable of loving them, nurturing them and protecting them from harm. My so-called family did the same thing to me before...minus the knife, that is...however, when I was a little kid, when my brother had one of his childhood friends over (that friend was a sociopath), I locked myself in my room because I was afraid that they might hurt/kill me...and when they finally picked the lock, said friend told me, while holding a knife in his hand, that he was going to "slit my throat". I was so scared...I hated that boy to pieces and I still hate him to this day! Well, the sooner you tell someone, the better...Darlene is right, Amy! Please tell someone!

You need a true and trusting friend
by: maurice

Amy 1 Darlene is the one whose comment you need to take notice of, she truly has your welbeing at heart in what she has written. She's decipher's all her visitor's to her site and can emphatise genuinely and sincerely with their telling of their story. She is totally professional in what she writes's in her comment to each one. But she knows only you can take action to begin your recovery and healing from the abuse you've suffered at the hands of a supposely loving mother who should know better to protect you. She ain't a good mother and neither is your stepfather or brother. You need a friend and another adult whom who can trust who will help you to do what Darlene suggests in her comment. Amy you are one very special child/teenager who does not deserve all that has happened to you. You can get the help just for you. Always believe in yourself, your a teenager, with good intelligence and understanding, you know you have been abused. All visitors to Darlene's Site Love you, care about you but you must LOVE yourself. I'm Special and I love me. hug yourself, be gentle and kind to yourself. Read and act on Darlene words of love and encouragement to you. I can, I will, I must, Just for me NOW.

Get out
by: Anonymous

Amy you really need to do something about this. It's not right for anyone to hurt you in any way n matter wat. I understand the not sleeping thing exceppt instead of my brother its my dad. You need to contact someone and get help because if your scarred then there is a reason. Please talk to a school councilor or someone that can get you help.

What loving and encourageing words
by: maurice

Amy 1 you've jumped back into my thoughts once again because of the loving and supporting words from L in her comment to you. My sincere feelings are still as I wrote in my comment. Take special note of Teenager L her teen heart is feeling for you. Darlene is the one we both want you to try and do something about but as L says it may be harder to do that it is said and encouraged. Hi Amy 1 you be brave and strong in yourself, with your very special friend of whom I an certain you have hold hands and bring what you wrote to someone you both know will help. A teacher, A counsellor at school, or indeed someone in your local police station. I bet you have that special friend who you trusted with your cruel abuse. Amy 1 we care about you, we love you, we value you for the wonderful and beautiful girl/teenager you truly are.

You're not alone
by: Anonymous

Amy, my only advice for you would be to get away from that abusive family.

Long story short I was abused by my brother for years who was only 18 months older than I. For years I was a mouse, didn't fit in and was miserable. One day I snapped and moved to live with my Dad, over the years I've finally found who I am and become a strong, successful person. I dont speak to my brother, my father and step mother know everything and love me for who I am, and I keep in touch with my mum because she's my mum, but I have no respect or love for her because of what she allowed to happen.

You need to be strong and to go to someone who will support you away from your family. And you'll soon find that your grades will improve and you will become an incredible woman. You may also look at some people differently because of your experience, but what I've found is I'm more dedicated and passionate than most and really making way in life because of my experiences and I'm sure you will too!
