Horrific abuse...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Angela, your mother is sick and twisted and in need of serious psychiatric services. I wouldn't have anything to do with her, especially since she continues with the abuse. I understand what that's like; my mother was the same. I too had to create distance from her. But what you're dealing with is too much to handle on your own. Please consider some form of counselling in order to help you through the effects of both witnessing horrific abuse and enduring it yourself. You can lessen the "haunting" but you need help doing so. You certainly deserve that kind of help. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Even animals would never treat their young so sadistically
by: Anonymous

Angela, I'm sorry that you didn't have a good mother...and I'm also sorry that one of your brothers died at age 19 because that brother of yours and you really did nothing wrong. Sadly, I have been through the same thing...minus the burning and sexual parts, that is (thank God for that!). I really hope that this sick and sadistic excuse of a mother (if one would even call her that) will someday get incarcerated for all those sadistic and terrible crimes that she committed against you guys as well as even for brainwashing your other brother (the eldest one) into turning on you guys. I also really hope that you try counselling that you ensure that your deceased brother did not die in vain. Thank god for people like me, Darlene, Maurice and more who truly care about you guys and want only the best for you guys. I wish you and will posthumously wish your departed brother all the best. Be brave, Angela, and stay strong!

I agree they are twisted....
by: Anonymous

This is totally horrible. I can understand how it feels like to be neglected when you are young. All I can tell is just get some professional help in healing. It might not help totally as the thing that helps you the most is yourself. Get some help you will feel much better and you will not spoil the life you have now. I wish you a very happy life ahead.

There is LIFE after abuse. Please believe in yourself and in this.
by: maurice

Hi Angela 1, Always believe in yourself may seem a difficult proposition for you right now. But please think about waht I am saying to you. You are the most wonderful and beautiful child of God and child of the Universe ever born. Sadly for you the circumstances and family surroundings were not the most ideal for you or your sister. What you were put through in the abuse your Step Father perpetrated on you is cruel, sadistic, horrific. You had the mother that gave birth to you reneging on her motherly responsibilitie. She needs loads of help. Sadly none of us asked to be born, I did not asked to be born in a single mothers home but I was. I had to make a real sense of that for myself before I began loving myself, making my birth real to me. My mother was a good motrher. she mothered me as now I would expect every mother to do with their newborn baby. Please don't blame yourself, nothing was your fault that was done to you. That Step father sure has alot to live with for taking away your beautiful innocence as a child. preying on your vunerability. Anonymous add their heartfelt feelings for you. Angela 1 please take time read Darlene's comment slowly, soak in her love for you in what she expressed. She's been where you were, she's worn the T Shirt of abuse, She acted and lucky for all of us who have shared our story with her and her many visitors on her site. We have her professional and genuine sincere heartfelt advice in her comments to us. She sure takes her time, I am sure praying, reading, and taking ownership of each visitors story before she put pen to paper. Professionally she knows what to advice as we can read her empowering words to each of us. She's journeyed through her own abuse so she feels the pain of you and all who share their story with her. From Victim to Victory that is what she want for each of us. Her comment to you please be pro-active in doing what she recommends might be the best for you NOW. My heart is with you as indeed are all who read your story here on Darlene's site. We emphatise with each other. We all want each other to move on from the abuse that happened to us. I can, I will, I must. Good on you Angela 1'

Your mother was wrong
by: Anonymous

Your mother is wrong, Angela. You are not fat nor ugly; you are beautiful. You are not stupid; you are smart, articulate, worthy of love, respect and care (all of which you and your equally youngest brother were sadistically denied of), and you have the potential to be whoever you want to be. I still really hope that you try counselling. You can always move on...unlike your sadistic abusers (especially your sick excuse of a mother); they will get their karma someday.

re my mothers secrets

Thank you for your support and I agree I do need help in dealing with these issues from childhood so I've decided to find counseling.I have to admit that when I first hit the submit button a part of me was sorry that I did but I'm glad now. I want to live my life to the fullest and be free of these chains that have held me back for so many years.Thankyou again and god bless you...

The Horror
by: Anonymous

Angela, your mom is deeply troubled. I know you wanted love from her. As for your older brother, I'm sure that he's been brainwashed by your mother. As for your other brother, I'm sorry for your loss. As for her boyfriend, he should go to jail because I'm sure he could be raping other young girls, since pedophiles don't change their ways until they're made to stop. Oh, and making jokes about him "raping you" really shows how uneducated and ignorant she really is.

The dignity you still deserve
by: Anonymous

Angela, your story is a bit like mine and I can honestly say that it's horribly disturbing. That's good that you're already working to get out (too bad your late brother didn't; if not for your abusers, then he could've done the same that you're doing) because no more secrets can help put an end to that cycle of abuse and helplessness.

I highly suggest that you look into reporting them and trying counselling.
