Unanswerable questions
by: Darlene Barriere

I understand your need to know why your mother did not act to protect you, Danielle. I understand why you would question how she did not—indeed, how she could not—know that you were being abused. Then, of course, the question becomes, Mother you must have known, therefore, why did you allow the abuse to go on? These are questions that can never be answered adequately, because there is no adequate answer. [Your mother should have ensured you were safe, no matter what.] You deserved that safety; you had a birthright to that safety.

The man who physically abused you should have to pay the legal price for what he did to you. The men who sexually assaulted you should be in prison for the rest of their lives for raping you. And your mother should be in jail for the rest of her life for enabling and being party to child abuse.

I hope you are now in a safe place, Danielle, and I sincerely hope you are still getting the counselling you need, because you are worth the positive outcome that therapy can provide.

How Shocking! 0_o
by: Francine

Danielle, the way your mom, your ex-stepdads and some foster familes treated you is so extremely disgusting! If you still need help, then I'd advise you to get some counselling. Your mom should've protected you, instead of being so selfish! I believe you all the time and I always know that you have deserved so much better that you ever did when you were a kid. You are so talented, so beautiful, so wonderful, so cute. so adorable; just don't let anyone think otherwise. The only stupidity I see is from your mother and your ex-stepdads! I love you and I will pray for you all night long! Take care, sugah (slang for "sugar")! XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO (X = kisses while O = hugs)

Good for you
by: Steph

It is hard to see life any different when you've been through so much abuse. No wonder you didn't have respect for yourself or value your life, you were treated like an object not a person. I know there are so many others who have gone through similar experiences and it can be so humiliating and degrading. I'm proud of you that you have reached out to others and are working on getting yourself back. Part of healing is to try to ease the pain of others by helping in some way. Keep up the good work!

Your my sister

Danielle: Your story touched my heart. While my abuse story has not yet been written for this sight yet, your comments reminded me so much of myself. I'm 24 years old and have been in and out of mental wards, therapy sessions, DBT groups and doctors appointments. I look back at when I was 17 (the age of my nervous breakdown) and can't remember a moment of joy or the feeling of strength. The pain is indescribable for people that have gone through what we have. But our pain is our own. No one will ever be able to fully understand our torment but it will make sense to them. You have such an articulate writing ability that I strongly urge you to channel and use in your life. Write, write, write! Only God knows the wings that you can spread so you can soar when you do.

Stay strong
by: Tara


You sweet girl!! I am sorry for the pain you have endured for so much of your life. Feel proud to know that your story will give hope and strenght to others. Don't give up on yourself. I believe God has put us all on this earth for a reason. You are special. You were not an accident. And the fact that you weren't sucessful in your suicide attempt is proof that you are needed here. Please know that you didn't deserve anything that you had to endure! Stay focused on you. There are many organizations that can help you. Stay strong, stay focused, love yourself...God Bless! ~Tara

I cant even begin to imagine
by: Tracy Larivee

Please dont ever again think about giving up on life. You are a wonderful, beautiful person, and because of that you were meant to live, and your life will be full of peace and love one day. You are so young, but obviousley wise beyond your years. Keep the strength. Remember to treat yourself as well as you would treat others (it's not backwards, it works both ways!) Learn to love yourself, spoil yourself, find peace within yourself, and you will help someone else. Survive, succeed, and then say "I did it, you can to!" It's harder to have those horrible people in your life, than cutting them out of your life once and for all. You are beautiful...I hope you know that!!!
