I can, I will, I must get professional Help NOW
by: maurice

Oh Emma 2 please read Darlene's ever loving, caring, supporting words to you. they will help and empower you to get the help you seriously need right now. Emma 2 though distance separates each of and and all Darlene's visitors and herself. Never the Less Human Nature is an empowering gut feeling in each of us. That is why Darlene's site is so powerful. She is a true proof of overcoming abuse as she has written in her life's story from Victim to Victory. She is a trained professional with a total woman's heart for each of her visitors. Emma let this New Year be a New Beginning for you in your healing process from abuse. You need the advice from a counsellor or a therapist with the hugs of a true and real friend. I am a believer in the true friend. I don't have brothers or sisters and only child of a single Mam. I know Families are not perfect but by my journeying with them through my social worker status these past forty years I know 8o% make the greatest of effort to be families of LOVE. My best friend is one of 11 and they are a true example of what I believe true family life is all about They are all one with each other, they all married well and their children as cousins to each other are continuing that togetherness in each other. They are my inner strength and blessings. Emma 2 I always want what is best for people and for those who are marginalized especially the people who are marginalized because of ABUSE who have shared their painful story with me. I can only support and encourage each one to Believe in herself/himself and take the necessary steps to unconditionally love themselves for who they are Now in their lives. I am a believer in each one of us having a good MIRROR image of oneself. Since I began loving myself in the mirror I have never looked back. Thinking always positive stuff about who I am now not the negative stuff having been physically abused has or could have done to me. I got help, I believe in the help I received, I believe in myself. Emma 2 please Love yourself unconditionally, Don't Quit. Always believe in YOURSELF. I can, I will, I must, as I begin another NEW YEAR of my life. Do your best and leave the rest to God. Heed Darlene special and caring words to you in her Comment. She knows Emma 2. Get off that bottom of yours Live well, Laugh a lot, Love much, get involved, be active, be alive, Have a healthy mind in a healthy body Go out and strut your giftedness and your tallents. I will, I can, I must, go on then.

For your sake and his, tell.
by: Mike

You need to report him. What he is doing is illegal and he is seriously ill. He needs help and so do you.

Telling can make sure it comes to a stop and that's the first step to you moving on with your life. Until it stops, you can't move on and you deserve to have a normal life. Once it's all in the open, you can get counseling to help you live your own life. Once you report him, he will be given the medication and counseling he needs. He has a mental illness and needs to be helped, so by telling, you will actually be helping him.

I'm not going to hide the truth. If you tell, you will make some enemies, but hopefully some people will see what you've been through and will be your friend. People will hate you for getting your father in trouble, but in the end, after you get some help and your father gets help, people will see that you did the right thing. Believe it or not, in the future, even your father might actually be thanking you for getting him the help he needs. I know.

It will be very hard to do, but please report him.

Contact Kids Helpline at 1-800-668-6868 or http://www.kidshelpphone.ca/en/home.asp to start and they will help you do something about it.
