You DO NOT deserve to be mistreated...EVER
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Casey, what's been happening to you over all these years is most definitely NOT YOUR FAULT. You didn't—and DON'T—deserve any of it. You don't deserve to be mistreated in any way, shape or form. Period.

You ARE worthy of Love. You ARE worthy of Dignity. You ARE worthy of Respect. You ARE special. You are NOT a "mistake", regardless of what your seriously troubled father has said to you. You believe the lies that both your parents—who themselves were abused and are not in their right minds—fed you. They need help, but you can't do anything about their plights. You can only help yourself.

I commend and applaud that you are ready for the help, Casey. I congratulate you for realizing that the path you are on now is a destructive one that you no longer want to walk along. I am so proud that you have had the courage to speak out about what has happened to you, and that you have told my visitors and me by writing your story on my site about how the abuse has affected you. Because doing so is the first step. You can't change what you don't acknowledge. YOU, Casey, have acknowledged that there is a problem.

You said you will set some personal goals "one day". That day has come. Your personal goals need to include getting out of that house. You need to remove yourself from the situation if you have any hope of healing. It is way too unhealthy for you to stay there. Your parents are toxic to you right now. Separating yourself from them is the most loving thing you can do for yourself at this point.

I urge you to 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. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.kidshelp.com.au/template/standard.aspx?s=129&p=104&r=2&b=1

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me, Casey. I have faith that you WILL break free, and that you will find your way along a path toward healing and recovery. Utilize every resource available to you as though your life depends on it, because your life DOES depend on it. Start by calling the number above.

Not Your Fault
by: Anonymous

Casey, what your so-called family did to you was AND STILL IS extremely sadistic, pathetic, disgusting and ungrateful. I'm sorry that you didn't have a good family; my whole family used to hit me, too, and that stinks! I hope your whole so-called family get incarcerated for all the terrible crimes that they committed against you because you did nothing wrong. I also hope that you try counselling because you are wroth the help that you deserve. Be brave, Casey, and stay strong. I am hurting for you.

I am beautiful, that you are, for sure.
by: maurice

After all you've been put through at the hands of those very wrong (sick) adults (Parents) is as Darlene has told you in her caring/loving/helpful words Casey 1. Sadly for you their background is abuse too and they know no better. Never an excuse to treat you in the way they have. Out of fear you did alot of stuff especially soiling yourself. there way of helping you overcome it was certainly humiliating of you you. Making jokes about it really shows up how uneducated and ignorant they were. Casey 1 please don't blame your self in the least.Being still in that uncaring environment (God Knows) you may be in a situation that you cannot get away from as Australia is vast. I spent time in New Zealand and that was vast. Getting help you must Casey 1. You may find it hard to see yourself beautiful in the mirror. But that you are that is what all of us even after being treated poorly, made feel like a piece of ??? But I am beautiful is what you have to begin saying to yourself, Love love your self. be gentle with yourself, be kind to yourself, Even where you are at I am sure you have some one named friend that you relate your intimate stuff with. who listens and loves you for the beautiful teenager you are now. If possible get away to be on your own and begin a life for yourself. Don't Quit or give up on yourself. You are intelligent, articulate, well able to express yourself and now you are old enough to realize YOU WERE ABUSED. Don't go down the road of those who abused you. You are better than them.

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

Casey, I agree with everything Maurice said to you about soiling yourself and about the twisted way your parents made cruel jokes about rubbing your soiled underwear on you because doing such a thing like that and then making jokes about it (plus bragging about it) is very repulsive, disgusting, pathetic, sadistic, twisted and ungrateful. Your parents are extremely twisted in their own ways of thinking. You should've been loved and cherished. I can relate; I was only 5 or 6 years old when I just put on PJs and I wet myself (not on purpose!). My mom was so mad that she beat me and kicked me. And then she gave me different PJ's to wear. Again, when I was six or seven years old (and shortly after school in my first grade year), I literally wet my shorts (again, not on purpose!) and my mom just hit me and hit me and hit me while my dad just screamed and called me a "bad girl" and a "worthless dumbass". And then as soon as I put on a different underwear and different shorts, they literally told me that they would put diapers on me if I ever wet myself again and that I was so stupid and lazy that I "did not know how to control my bladder". Also, when I was seven, I was so constipated that I would literally poop my pants a lot...which literally made my parents and brother (and even myself) hate me. Sorry, but this is how can I relate.

Anyways, my dear Casey, if you still live with your parents, then you must get out now and tell somebody that you really trust. Maurice is right! Please tell someone before it's too late! Don't wait too long!

Please get out
by: Judy

of that household. My heart goes out to you and I am praying that you find a way out. There is always hope - you just need to extend a hand to the right people. Your parents are horrible and they need to be incarcerated. I can never understand anyone who abuses a child in any way. You were/are deserving of loving, nurturing, and caring parents, however, that is not the hand you were dealt thus you need to get away from the abusive, destructive, and cruel parents that you have. My prayers are with you - God Bless. Judy P.S. Please listen to the wise words of Darlene, Maurice, and the other visitor(s) - they will not lead you astray.

you're loved admittingly from a distance but you can move on in your life.
by: maurice

Casey 1. You sure are loved, by Annonomous, Judy, Darlene and Myself. We have all written loving, affirming words of support and encouragment to you. It is from a distance but you took that great step of seeking help when you sat down and told us all your very sad and wrong experiences done to you by your Parents. You can't be in any doubt of our heartfelt feelings towards those who ruined your life. Don't let them win, Casey 1. Your life is slowly in your own hands to change and make a difference. Begin by making your self ever so beautiful in the mirror. Deep within Casey 1 is that accepting that you are beautiful. Just shower it all over yourself physically. I can, I will, I must, just re-read all our comments and you'll begin to get the strength to do it. Cuddle, soothe, cream, powder yourself all over it is a great feeling Casey 1.

Seriously, get out of that house!
by: Anonymous

Please get out of that house as soon as you can, Casey; you've suffered enough. Your parents are mentally ill. As for your brother, that's a shame that he grew up to be just like them. As soon as you get away from them, your healing can start in earnest.
