Although your life may be better than what your mother's childhood was like, she's deluding herself into believing that what she and your father are doing isn't harming you. You need someone to talk to: a school counsellor, a trusted teacher, an adult who can help you. Ask to use the school phone in order to contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453). They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

well, these past few days she's been nice to me and my teachers (the guidence counsler is also the carreers teacher) would never believe me. Everyone thinks i have the perfect life. I can have parties with friends whenever i want, i have tons of pets and i am always "happy" I have perfect grades and seemingly the perfect life. My pets are bought by me, the parties are watched by me, and well, i act like an adult. Anyway i have 2 go put my rabbits out to run

I agree completely with what Darlene says. Please tell someone at school.
I had the same problem. I kept up this thing at school where I was always happy, I had all the new gadgets, I had everything physically. I had perfect grades. Everything from the outside looked perfect. But then I opened up to people at school and the world changed for me. Please talk to a teacher or school counselor. If you make it clear it's all an act, like I did, I can bet you'll get results from them. Plus, if it's physical, they have to do something about it legally. So please tell someone. It's the best thing you can do for yourself. My biggest regret in life was not telling in the beginning.
Just try it. You never know what might happen.

The Value of a friend in need who is a friend in deed
by: Maurice

Erie, get my message: Tell someone: read Darlene's comment she truly cares and loves you from her heartflet words written to you in her in encourageing you to Talk. I WILL: I CAN: I MUST: (LET THIS BE YOU MANTRA,) (MOTTO,) from this day on. becaue you are worth it. Hi, say, Because I am worth it. Erie all you will get from those who make comments to your story is love and friendship. We care about each other. evn from a distance. But you have to get off your bottom and act on the words of support and encouragement to you. Darelne expects that of all her visitors. self help out of abuse. It's my life she is asking me to live to the full after abuse. She's proved to us all there is life after abuse. Erie you be a winner too. ALWAYS BELIEVE IN YOURSELF: Have a healthy mind in a healthy body. get out there being active and life with your school mates. your friends taking part in healthy games and cultural activities you'll come to know the bemenfit of what I am asking you. There is safety in numbers. mixing and intergrating with your peers keeps you thinking normal and natural about yourself. Build up a good SELF ESTEEM and mirror image of yourself. Look at the beauty of the me looking out at you. say nice things to yourself. I am special, I am wonderful, I asm great, I am tallented/gifted in my own right. I have a nice etc etc. Their nice. I like them, No negativity now. This is not nice etc, i don't like this etc. if you are inclined to be negative STOP IMMEDIATELY> I am the person I want to be. So get help Erie to make a sense of yourself and dealing with your abuse. Taliking in total confidentiality to a counsellor/therapist will work wonders for you. I know, Darlene knows because it worked wonders for us. Off that bottom now and act on Darlne's words to you in her comment.

Hi
by: Jacob

Hey erie I know how you feel I to am emotionaly abused, However I have not learned how to control my emotions ( got any tips ) My own mother says im worthless and a "mistake" while her and my stepdad argue with each other, but they just realized that calling me names dosnt work so instead the make fun of my horrible grades. I just found out that im not going to get a birth day at all because my stepdad wasted the money on his preciouse cars. My real dad refuses to talk to me at all. As with the emotions i cant controll them instead they go to extremes. One time my stepdad told me that my real father was a murderer and he was gona come and kill me and nobody would help me then he killed my pet lizard and laughed, afterwards I smashed up his car.


Well thx for looking at my story hope to hear from u
