Alcohol CAN take over the brain
by: Darlene Barriere

You're right about alcoholism, Emily. Alcohol does take over the brain. What you and your sisters lived through was unthinkable. Both your mother and father should have protected you. You shouldn't have had to grow up so fast and with such turmoil. You deserved so much better than that.

As for you no longer seeing your family, I can definitely understand your position. Sometimes we need to walk away when family members are toxic to our well-being. I hope you find some semblance of peace, Emily. If you haven't already found a counsellor to work with you, I sincerely hope you will consider doing so. You are worth it.

You are a star
by: Winniesanders

Well done Emily, for sharing your,heartrending story. The things people suffer, at the hands of others is deplorable. I also feel the Authorities dont look hard enough to see whats under their noses. I admire your courage and strength, and am proud to call you friend.
Thank you for sharing.
Luv Winnie.xx

How Could They?!
by: Francine

Your parents are so unbelievable! All they do is drink although they are supposed to care for and protect your and your sisters (even including your half-sister). Well, my dad did the same thing and he refuses to apologize for that! Your parents know much better than to drink all the time! As for your half-sister Kellie, I'm sorry for her death. I'm also sorry about what you had to go through. Your parents need to be in prison for their alcoholism and their selfishness so that the guards will teach them a lesson about drinking. You might want to try some counselling.

I love you Kiddo
by: Marg

I am so sorry you had no childhood,no safety and no one to look out for you and your sister. Your sister died of wanting to be loved and getting neglected and harmed. It's a wonder you didn't. I know you can stay strong and work through this all but you shouldn't have to. None of it was your fault or up to you even,you didn't choose any of it. Neglect,selfishness,you have never been cared for. Every child deserves to be loved and kept safe. I wish I could put my arms around you and take it all away. But it is part of you and I admire you writting this. I admire how hard you are trying to heal,and you will but you need to take time and do what you need to for you. You have survived the horror of it all and you are a warm and loving person. You should be sooooo proud of the you that you are! I know I am!!! Quite the Lady!!!

They Do Care.....
by: Anonymous

Hey Emily!
Look, I realize how horrible your childhood was but my mom is an alcoholic, too, and I know that deep down, she cares about me. I think your mom was just like my mom is. She doesn't show she cares, when she's intoxicated but can a drunk person really show they care? You're mom and bob probably had a disease, like alcoholisim. It makes them so addicted to alcohol that they can't control themselves. Your mom probably was so ashamed of how she treated you and your sibling that she drank to distract herself. I know you think she doesn't care but like my mom, I'm sure she did.
