Gordon:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

My god...the fact that you came out of your childhood with even a semblance of sanity, let alone the clear-headedness you now have, is nothing short of miraculous. I have so much respect for you, Gordon. Ray WAS a monster, and a criminal, but he was also a coward. Only a coward would pick on a helpless little boy. Perhaps he lived through abuse himself (very likely), but that doesn't excuse one thing he did to you or your brother. But rather than use those experiences as what not to do, he instead took the control he never had and used it to control you and your brother. But I find it equally disturbing that your mother enabled the abuse. She did nothing when she witnessed what he was doing; she did nothing when there must have been clear signs of what he was doing. She chose Ray over her precious sons; and for that, she has much to answer for. Gordon, I can assure you that writing your story on this site has helped my visitors. I can only hope there is some catharsis there for you too. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

You are one brave child of God, Child of the Universe.

Gordon you sure had a pervert of a step-father and a collaborator with him of Mother who should have saved you from his perverions. You a child, with your childhood innnocence wanting to be loved and nutured into an adolecent of specialness. Alas you were treated like an animal by that B of a man. Your brotehr and yourself are remarkable human beings after all that horrific abuse of your dignity, your innocence, your vunerabilty, Please, oh please heed the words of Darlene: She certainly feels for you and your brother: sincerely: genuinely from her womans heart. If you even read over and over again her comment it will move you to get help. Encourage you into counselling which in turn will give you a clearer mind of all that horrendous abuse. Don't Quit, be the winner over that B and so called mother. I will, I can, I must, in order to truly LOVE myself in completenes and make a sense of it. Great you have a friend or a couple to walk with. Let them be your inner strength to get help. Don't use the alcohol or drugs to be your source of comfort. Have a healthy mind in a healthy body Gordon though we are miles apart, I am human, I find it unimaginable all the stuff that B did to you and your brother: He was a sicko, a bad man, What I feel should be done to him is unprintable. He ruined your life badly. Stay strong while you try to erase it from your mind. It will take time Gordon, be patient. Hi, please read Darlene's comment. Her words are a new beginning for you once you begin to take action and make sense of her loving. encourageing, honest words to you. I am certain in her professional understanding, even your story has to raise her eye brows. Horrific and horrendous acts on you. Gordon, she was a winner over abuse, make this your mantra, I can, I will, I must so that i can live my life to the full each day I roll out of bed. Keep haveing something to get up for. Take part in sporting and cultural activities to get you out of the house. Be brave, be strong and persevere in your healing and your recovery. Off the A or the B and motivate yourself positievly each day.
