You've taken a first step by disclosing on this site what happened to you at the hands of your very troubled and hostile father. You really do need to take the next step, because if you don't you'll be haunted by it. And that haunting can last a lifetime, and affect every aspect of your life. Please tell someone you trust. Consider contacting the Australian Kids Help Line at 1800 55 1800. KHL have counsellors who will listen to you and discuss your options. The service is available 24 hours a day for children, youth and young adults between the ages of 5 - 25. Their counselling services are free, confidential, and you can remain anonymous. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.kidshelp.com.au/template/standard.aspx?s=129&p=104&r=2&b=1

You need help dealing with all of this, Gemma. Reach out for that help. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
