I understand your desperation. It's not that you want to die; it's that you want to be out of pain. I've been in that pain...I'm so thankful that I was unsuccessful in my attempt. Please contact one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially. And check your local phonebook for resources that are available to abuse victims. Just don't give up, because there is ALWAYS hope. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

don't ever give up.
by: Anonymous

dale. you have gone through a lot. we all understand that. but 1: it is not your fault you were treated like that. and 2: maybe everyone around you won't listen, but you need to find someone who will. and trust me, you will. i mean, you wrote on a website, and i don't know you, but i care about you and hope you will turn out ohkay. you will. god has a plan for you. a good one. just work hard enough. and when you're successful, people will look up to you and your story. you'll inspire kids and people like you to never give up. the world isn't the end of the world until god says it is. tomorrow is a new day. start fresh. shower and clean your shoes, and walk out that door with the drive and fire of your past. good luck and i wish you the best. :)

Don't Quit, Don't give up on me, Always believe in YOURSELF
by: Maurice

Hiya Dale, wonderful and beautiful you, oh yes that is who you are, you are at a very low ebb in your life right now, take it from me the only way back is up, up, and away living your life to the full. Positive Thinking Now. I can, I will, I must because I know I am WORTH it. Off that a** of yours. the more you sit on it moaning the fact I am this, I am that, I can't I am not able to, etc etc. get my message that is negative, very negative, There is life after abuse. Darlene had to get off her a** and do something about her horrific abuse and yes the feeling you are having right now. Dale, look in that MIRROR. I am certain you don't see the mess you say you are. look deeper, who do you see? one very special and beautiful person. Oh yes abused, badly, you may still be seeing the bruises and scars of those days. The effects are leaning heavily on you right now. I am a winner, I ain't giving up on me, my precious life is more important to me than those who used it and abused it when I was innocent and vunerable. Hi am 32 years of age, I can have a healthy mind in a healthy body. I can, I will, I must, Yes Dale you need help to do it, speak with a counsellor, I bet you have a real friend who loves, values and respects you. who know the pains you are working through, get out of that bottle or drug mentality as the helps. Be free, get out into an open field and run free, free let the winds and the breezes blow away the negative feelings and safely dive into the cold streams and let that wash away the scars and the bruises still visible. You'll be a free'er thinking human being Adult. Now be gentle and kind to that person and body of yours. soothe your hurtin parts with the gentleness of a massage or rub with those gentle hands of yours. Now look in the mirror, hug and cuddle yourself nobody's looking, then let others whom you trust hug and cuddle you. that Auntie will lift your spirits because she does not want to see you go deeper into your morass of thinking. Off that A** now, become part of groups into sporting and cultural activities slowly allowing you to become active and alive. You'll feel better in days.
