Please follow your own advice. You still need help yourself. All these feelings and emotions that have been trapped inside of your are going to resurface. And if you keep pushing them down, they'll keep trying to bubble up. Every bad thing that happens in your life will be a trigger, and that trigger could so easily and very likely throw you into a deeper and deeper level of despair. What happened to you wasn't your fault. Your father clearly has his own problems that he has taken out on you. Just because he's your father doesn't mean that what he says is the truth. Those nasty things he said are lies about you. You are NOT those terrible things. You're compassionate and caring and you see the good in others, plus so much more. THAT'S Who You Really Are. Please go back to counselling. Be honest about your feelings and emotions. Your counsellor can help you to understand and develop boundaries, and help you to understand that you deserve to be treated with dignity and respect and love. Start by treating your Self in that way; and it can start by going back to talk to someone. I send you love, light and healing energy, Elly. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Horror
by: Anonymous

Elly, you deserved love, protection, dignity and respect, all of which you were cruelly and sadistically denied of. Oh, and he's wrong. You are not dumb; you are not stupid; you are smart and articulate. You are not a wimp; you are not weak; you are strong; you are not a w****; you're not easy; you're not a s***; you were just sexually abused. you are not a "little s***"; you're a good person. You're not fat; you're not ugly; you're very beautiful. Never believe any of those soul-stripping lies. You're a star! You are not to blame; you didn't cause anyone to abuse you. Next time they lay a hand on you, please consider reporting them to the cops ASAP; children are gifts to treasure, not to abuse.

why there is no option on your site to specify is the person who told his story is a boy or girl?
names are not enough to specify the sex.You would like to improve that.

From Darlene - Webmaster: Thank you for your suggestion, Ell. The programming is relatively basic for the module I must use for posting stories and articles, commentaries, etc on my site. I do not have access to any programming whatsoever. For those who want to identify themselves as either male or female, that's always up to them. I have many posts from Name Undisclosed and Anonymous...I simply respect how they've chosen to identify themselves. Encouraging and supportive comments do not have to be tailored specifically to the gender of the person posting. Rather, responding to what the person posted I find is most important.

Love & light to you, Elly.

Your are amazing
by: leticia dominguez

your story is so heart breaking, but you are truely amazing. there is a reason why your suicide attempts have all failed, because you are meant to live! You are special and very strong. You do matter and so does your story. I can't even imagine that happening to me and still be able to be strong enough to move on with my life. I admire your strength.
