You have NO shame to bear. The blame and guilt is no on you. Blame, shame and guilt belongs entirely on your abuser. The pedophile. You are not the rapes you endured. You are not the lies you were told, directly and indirectly. You are not dirty. You are not a shell. What you ARE is an amazing survivor. And you have the capacity within your Self to change all your negative thoughts. The place to start is by catching yourself saying something negative about yourself. Awareness is key. Then tell yourself the exact opposite. Write it down. Don't worry if you don't believe it. Yet. Just write it out. You really are so much stronger than you realize. You are not broken, though I understand how you feel that you are. What you are is ready to begin your healing. And that IS available to you. The abuse is no longer happening. You're safe from the abuse now as an adult. What's left are your memories and the thoughts you attach to those memories. Betty, consider following my healing blog (link is above these comments). You may well find inspiration in the daily posts there. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Can relate a million times over.
by: Linda

Dearest Betty J., I can very much relate to what you are feeling. First I'd like to say you are not a nonhuman or animal. The monster that raped you was all that. Don't punish yourself for having bad parents. I feel compassion for you for having to give up your baby. Maybe one day you will find your child, and explain why you were forced to do it. I went through a rape at age 14 and became pregnant, only I was forced to marry him, and deal with his abuse on a daily basis because he was my boyfriend at the time. I felt like my parents made me marry him for a punishment I didn't deserve.
My boyfriend forced himself on me. I hope you can find happiness and peace in your life and get past what happened to you. None of it was your fault, please keep that in your mind and don't let your abusers win. Take care....Linda.

My parents
by: Anonymous

I didn't give the baby up soon as it was born they took it. I a so releaved there is a ocean that separates me from those animals who stold my childhood away from me. Those two do not even deserve to be called parents. They were beast starving for a child, stalking my innocence. I am so afraid to let people come near me, took me years to be able to walk down the street without fearing everyone was going to Hurt me.
