Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. Please consider some form of counselling to help you deal with the repercussions of coming from such a horrible environment. Although I can understand your anger and hostility toward women given what you grew up with, don't make the mistake of blaming all that happened in your life on your mother. Your father carries just as much responsibility. A counsellor may be able to help you understand that, and then help you move forward in your life.

A willing enabler for a father...and a vicious beater for a mother
by: Anonymous

Darrell, what those brutes for parents did to you and your brother is very pathetic and ungrateful because they are really twisted, sick, sadistic and cruel in their own ways of thinking. They certainly didn't deserve to have such wonderful sons like you guys, but most of all, you guys certainly didn't deserve to have sick, uncaring, twisted, uncaring, cruel, sadistic, ruthless parents. Oh, and even making jokes about humiliating you and your brother after the garbage man left the garage with you in it really shows me how uneducated and ignorant your "parents" really are and they really need to go to prison for all those terrible crimes that they subjected you guys to because you guys did nothing wrong; in fact, you guys were the children, they were the adults. They had all the power and they only misused it. I am really sorry that you guys didn't have good parents and I hope that you try counselling.

Don't give up on yourself or Your Brother: Be winners together NOW
by: maurice

Darrell, your story is horrific, especially all that your so called parents did to you and your brother. Either of you did not deserve such humiliation, such treatment, such abuse, especially by the two people who should have loved and cherished you being their children: You have arrived at a safe place, a safe house, a family of friends and people who can only love and cherish you admittingly from a distance. But genuine human love can be understood even from a distance: Darlene's site is that safe place for you and hopefully your brother to make new beginnings in your lives: up and out of the morass of your abuse: Darlene has given you encouraging and loving words to begin with: Don't give up, Don't Quit, you may feel you are at a very low ebb in your life because of what those very sicko's of individual did to you and your brother. They were not real parents, the were cruel, sadistic, animalistic in the way they treated you: putting you naked in to that Garrage to keep warm: Not bothering about the garbage man seeing you shivering and in such condition: out and out sick individuals: You be brave, You be strong, you be a winner over that horrific abuse' you have good people around you and hopefully your brother and yourself are close: together get counselling, oh yes, Darlene knows the best way forward for you both: she came from an abused place into living a life now that is empowering while she empowers others like you and me and all her visitors; She has benefitted so many to think new beiginnings: away from the effects of abuse: she's proved there is life after ABUSE: Always believe in yourself: Have a healthy mind in a healthy body: Oh yes I believe that is a good way forward too. Get out and about mixing with like-minded people in your own age group being active and alive in sporting and cultural disciplines of activities: Making you feel good in mind and body. Don't get lazy on me now: Or more so yourself for that matter: I WILL: I CAN: I MUST: Because I am WORTH it. Darrell, you'll be fine if you follow Darlene's advice and LOVE for you in the words she expressed from her woman's heart to you.

Your Love Shines Through
by: Darrell

First I must say that hearing your words of encouragement has given me great hope. The years of abuse were hard and the question always in the back of my mind even today is "Why" I do try to look at the positive in life. I have grown through so many experiences. One thing I cannot seem to get through is the self sabatage. I will go allong for a period of time and things seem to go well. I have been through to marriages. the first abandoned me and the kids. I worked hard to treat her like a lady and did everything I possibly could to show her love, but I suffered as I had such a hard time maintaining this. She left for another. The last one was seeing someone for over a year. I found out by waking up one morning to her screaming that she wanted a divorce. Well the divorce is over and I didnt fight it. I just didnt have it in me too do that. I lost everything and now I am alone again. I hate these failures it takes me back to all those years of hearing the only name I knew as a child. My brother and I were called, dumb, stupid, fathead, morons, ittiots. I hate when I see children in pain. I have tried to be there for people all my life since those days, but somehow I just cant seem to get ahaid and keep ahaid. Today this day, I am divorced and recently unemployed. When does it get better? How do I get out of this cycle that I know is as a result of the abuse as a child. Thankyou friends and especially Darlene Barriere of whom I have great respect for. best regards Darrell :-)
