You were neglected. And I believe your mother has the right idea. Therapy can be extremely helpful to you. We all feel shame for some of the things we've done in our lives. But if that shame stops you from seeking the help you need, you may never be rid of either the shame or the behaviour. Please take your mother's advice. And just for the record, you don't ever have to worry that visitors will leave comments that tell you it wasn't abuse or comments that somehow invalidate or belittle what you've been through because I screen each and every comment before it goes live on this site. Such disrespectful comments are deleted. They will never see the light of day. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

I understand
by: Melinda

Elizabeth, I can't completly identify with you because I have never been in a realionship with a disabled person, I imagian it would be hard. But i can identify with you on the internet videos, that aren't soo nice to watch. My sexual abuse taht i whent through left me as a courious little girl, I was ashamed of this for a long time. I also was a cutter for a long time, cutting for me was a copping skill I was out of control, my mind was a mess, my life was a mess. The best thing that ever happened to me was counsling, and meds. I whent through many years of personal counsling and my life has changed so much. i encourage you to seek help, help isn't a bad thing! I wish you the best!

find what your looking for
by: Scott Canada

Hi Elizabeth. You sound like a smart young lady and have a good head on your shoulders. Your young and when we are young we are impressionable. Things are so fast and so new it can be overwhelming.
This computer world is a bear for sure. If you search for something on here your sure to find it, good and bad. I got a computer to work on and store own my songs. Its great for doing my c.d. covers as well.
One day I searched about my abuse. I found this site and I shared my story. On the same search I found many other sites as well that I'm not proud of stumbling into and out of curiosity checked it out.
My brother got into games on line and before long its all he did. Constantly going back to make HIS move. After months of this I had to unhook it and take it away so then he got a laptop and now stays in his room all the time. Hes a game addict with no life.
Unhooking the computer was nice and I realized just how much time I was spending on it as well. I have cut way back.
I guess what I'm trying to say is dont buy into everything on the Internet. Some of it is just pure b.s. and like the old saying, dont try this at home. Just because other people on the net, thousands of miles away are doing something doesn't make it right or safe to try ourselves.
Trust your instincts about right and wrong and be careful out there, people love you. Play safe, and be patient, youll find what your looking for.

I'm goin to be the winner in my life
by: Maurice

Hiya Elizabeth Q. You are a smart and intelligent teenager/young woman. That is your surety to be a winner over all that has happened to you and you did in your life. You are very much aware you need love, support and courage to go and talk with a Therapist. I will: I can: I must because I am WORTH it. Your shame is real but not your fault because of what you have done, you were killing a curiosity trying to make sense of life and your growing up in a family that has alot to cope with. An autistic sister, needing alot of love and care. from each one of you as well as you dedicated Mother. your sister and yourself are mature enough NOW to know better. offer your help to your mother to see if it is possible for a different caring approach of your sister. Having such a sister/child in a family is a gift when everyone begins to understand what is best for all concerned under professional guidance. Both your sisters will be your help to get help. Your Mam is dead on, she knows best, please listen to her. If possible speak with a therapist. you are a big girl now Elizabeth Q to know your Mammy wants what is best for you. NOW you must want it for yourself. Great to hear you say my mother is the strongest person I know. She finds time to talk to me. Elizabeth Q Darlene know best. read her comment to you: Act on it, you'll be fine. Have a healthy mind in a healthy body, Oh yes, I believe this is a vital part of young people's growing up and getting to know themselves in the company of like-minded peers. Team Sports are a vital part of that healthy mind. mixing and intergrating while making friends for life through the dicipline of sports and cultural activities. So Elizabeth away from sitting on your bottom from your computer and get out there broaening your horizons about yourself sharing in healthy activities with people who talk back to you' Get my message. learn from your what you regards is a shame to you. let go of the negative thoughts about it. Think positive and move on. Always believe in yourself: I am beautiful, I am gifted, I am tallented, I am the best. look at that wonderful and great me in the mirror. Build up your Self Esteem by thinking positive, acting positive and being positive in all you do and say. Be gentle and kind on yourself and to yourself. Go on give yourself a huge hug and cuddle and say I LOVE ME> there's nobody looking and it ain't a silly hing to be asked to do. Thank You Elizabet Q, you gave every visitor to Darlene's Site hope and re-assurance by getting her to say, I screen each and every comment before it goes on this site. She is a blessing, a gift, A woman with a big heart for each of her visitors. A total professional and the best of Stewardship for her site. Thank you Darlene
