You are NOT alone...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Genie, I don't know if you are still in this situation or if you are now an adult and safe. If you are a minor, please tell someone who can help you. If you mother isn't in her right mind to stand up and protect you, then you must find a way to get yourself protected through another source. If you are still a minor, please contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the sexual abuse. 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

If you are now an adult, I strongly urge you to seek out some form of counselling to help you through the emotional residue, both for the sexual assaults AND for the betrayal and abandonment by your mother. Of all the people on the planet, she knew and yet she continued to expose you to sexual molestation. She basically led the wolf to the sheep; she has much to answer for. If you still have a relationship with your mother, perhaps the two of you can have a heart to heart about this. Perhaps doing so will lead you both on a path toward healing and recovery. You didn't deserve to be molested, Genie. You most certainly deserve help for the fact that you were. You definitely do not have to consider yourself on some rock, sad, depressed and alone. You are NOT alone. And you have the power to get help for yourself. You must do what you must do in order to deal with this, Genie. You're too worthy NOT to.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

abuse is abuse no matter how you try to tell it
by: maurice

Genie, my immediate re-action to your telling or sharing your own abuse story was that you knew your mam was abused in the photo album. confusing for me is that I don't know what age you were when you noticed the bruises on your mam in the photo's. were you abused by your father who was your grand parent child. or was your mam your grand parents daughter. Darlene is a great and good woman. great and good professional women. she asks you to acknowledge it was you and how you were abused that you were telling her and her visitors. All in the sharing of your story need alot of love and help. Will you seek that help for you.
