Your parents are out of control
by: Anonymous

Grace, what those uncaring individuals for parents did to you is very sadistic and they are wrong. You are not worthless; you are not stupid; you are not ugly; you are not fat; you are not "big-mouth"you are not evil; you are not sadistic; you are not a spawn of the devil; you are not a bitch; you are not spoiled; you are not rotten; BY GOLLY, GRACE, YOU ARE NONE OF THOSE NAMES. You are beautiful, kind, smart, articulate and worthy of love, dignity and respect, all of which you were and still are cruelly denied of. Your parents are bullies for hurting you...it is probably as if they must've been acting like overgrown teenagers (and bad, sadistic ones, too!) who happened to be parents, one of which birthed two children. The sooner you tell someone, the better! Darlene is right, Grace. Please tell someone before it's too late! Don't wait too long.

That is so horrible
by: Marie

i cannot believe that your mother would do that. when i hear of child abuse i usually think of fathers. speaking of fathers what was he thinking. he porbably just didn't want to break up with your mother. i am lucky. i come from a good family my mother works alot and expects me to clean. when i dont she just doesn't let me used the computer, tv or go outside til i do. now i lknow that i have to do important things first before basking in luxuries.

know you need to love your true and beautiful self
by: maurice

Grace 3 you have been abused in a serious way by and uncaring/unloving mother and father. You realize that now to your own detriment. Your Mother certainly was a very ill and sick woman to treat you so harshly, starving you for days and locking you in your room, You became fearful of her instead of being able to love her. She certainly needs loads of help as does your father. Grace 3 you need to begin to love your beautiful and true self as you try to make a real sense of your parents. It will take time. great you have a friend who treats you with LOVE, cares for you knowing how you were treated. With her help Grace 3 you will grow to be one very special woman. Always believe in yourself. Begin to build up your own self worth and self esteem with the help of your friends and maybe your older sister who wanted to care for you. Hi see that pretty beautiful person in the mirror. go on say I love me. I'M Special.

So little love shown...
by: Anonymous

Grace, my heart goes out to you. All those years of trying to please your parents and not seeing love. All those years of also having your sister try to bring you some food and still not receiving love. I don't really know what to say...just to let you know that I read what you wrote.

Seriously, get out of that house!
by: Anonymous

Please try to get out of that house as soon as you can, Grace; you've suffered enough (so did your sisters). Your parents are mentally ill. Once you (and your sisters) get away from them, your healing can start in earnest.
