You're right...your mother has mental problems...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Ellen, your mother is very troubled and twisted in her thinking. If she was thinking right, she would NEVER be doing the terrible things she's doing to you and she would never say those horrible things. And I do understand what it's like to have a mother who can fool everyone: My mother did exactly the same to me. Everyone believed her. Everyone thought I was the problem. I suggest you contact one of the national hotlines in order to talk to someone. If you are in the USA, Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

Always remember, you are perfect as you are, Ellen. And I for one am very happy you were born. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Your mom is out of control (no, really!)
by: Anonymous

Ellen, your mom is wrong. You are not fat; you are not a bitch; you are not worthless; you are not stupid; you are not retarded; you are not ugly...remember, you are truly beautiful, smart, articulate and worthy of love and respect. I'm sorry that you don't have a good mom; I can relate. My parents did a similar thing like that to me and everyone else outside my "family" has always loved them. Your mom has lots of problems and she really needs help...but you need help, too. Darlene is right! Please tell someone, including your father and sister! Don't wait too long! Be brave and stay strong!

Oh speak out on your own behalf because you're Special
by: maurice

Ellen, talk all your feelings through with a therapist, also the few that your really trust in your life, who love you and believe you. Darlene has given you her words of encouragement so please heed them, you'll be all the better for doing so. Anonymous has given you loving heartfelt words too. Having found Darlene's site Ellen you are in a good place. All who may write comments including me care about your wellbeing in a genuine and sincere way. I am certain you are not the only one who realises that your Mother needs loads of help and alot of what she says to you is because she knows no better. It does not make right they ways she is treating you. Always believe in yourself. get all the love and help you feel and know will do a world of good. Love the me in the Mirror. I am the most important person now to love and be loved for being the wonderful and beautiful person I am today.

anyone who will listen
by: Shannon

Tell anyone who will listen, more teachers, more friends, church ppl,neighbours, anyhow dont stop till someone listens, police, just keep on telling them, someone eventually will listen and help you... I've been on the recieving end of a wickedly twisted mother.... just keep telling ppl, principals, everyone and anyone, my heart goes out to you... Ellen, Im 40 and went threw hell and back. I made it... you can too.. stay strong, focused, and realize... SHE is the problem.. NOT you..

you are more than you can ever imagine
by: Anonymous

Hold your head high.Your mother is very sick.She also sounds very unstable.Tell a school counselor.Or walk into any doctors office tell the nurse or doctor you are being abused.You could even go to an emergency room at the hospital and do this.They are legally obligated to help you.Your dad may seem upset but he should be removing you from the abuse you are suffering.A parent should protect their child.Sometimes we have to face our worse fears to get help.Please remember you are a gift from God.My heart is with you.

I am certain there is a reason for your return to the site.
by: maurice

Ellen, I hope and trust in God that you have searched out help for yourself. you must be brave and take your own life into your own hands NOW. I sure hope your life has changed for the better of yourself. your health and safety is the most important to you NOW. Darlene certainly has given you helpful and loving words to seek the help you need right now. You have endured alot of abuse from a mother who should KNOW better. It was not my fault, I was not to blame. I include you and indeed all who I make a comment to in my prayers. God bless you.
