You need help. You can't deal with this alone. Your mother doesn't understand what you're going through. Talk to a school counselor to find out if there are resources available to you. Consider contacting Child Helpline in New Zealand at http://www.whatsup.co.nz/0800 WHATSUP (0800 942 87 87). Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Hello Cleo, I wish I could tell you that one day you will awaken and you will have forgotten everything that has happened to you, but I cannot do that. You will not forget but as time passes and with lots of THERAPY and I cannot stress that enough you must seek out therapy for yourself talking about the pain and hurt with some one you can trust is part of the healing.
Over time with the right kinds of support you will grow stronger you are a strong person you just don't know it yet, in time you will realize that. Our memories make us stronger and I say us because I am a Survivor too, once I thought my life was doomed and that I would never get out of the Blazing Hell that I was in, lots of caring people assured me that things would get better but I could not believe them I just could not see how...
But Cleo it did I dragged myself out of that pit and with lots of good people behind me I was able to stand on my own two feet.
The sleeping will get better in time i'm afraid that there is no magic wand or pill but Time does heal.
I wish you the very best Cleo, keep positive and keep fighting you will get to a place where you will feel safe...
