You don't deserve to be mistreated. When you've got no one to turn to, consider contacting one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, so that you can talk to someone confidentially. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

remember...
by: Jordyn

The people who you tell are listening but arnt able to necessarily believe you even if their gut is telling them to. In an abuse case a child's testimony is close to worthless. Thats not saying that they automatically believe the adult, because they dont do that either. Its all about piecing the pieces of the puzzle together. Now if you have told a guidance counsoler it is there obligation to notify social services of suspected abuse and they could get in legal trouble for not speaking of what they hear. In my expierences with social services and finally telling someone it played out the same way. They didnt listen to me. I had to finally tell a doctor when i went in to get a check up. Dont give up. Dont ruin your next 3 years because of something your mom is doing. I too am 14 about to be 15 and my mom abuses me. I have a case open with social services and i am so tired of it that i just want to give up...but i cant. And neither can you. get with a friend. talk this out. What she's doing to you is wrong, but you are a minor. And I know that i want to be grown up, because i do just as much as an adult around the house and i pay the bills. but as far as rights go..its a tough situation. Its like your stuck between a rock and a hard place. Dont let her put you down. One of the hardest things is to admit that your mom is abusing you, because you want her to love you. Who doesnt. Dont give up..theres someone out there listening. Help will come.

Best wishes,

Jordyn
p.s.(i posted a story on here titled Child Abuse Story From Jordyn and that explains what i've been going through.) You will be on my mind and i will pray for you. Remember...you are never alone. :)

So many crimes committed...
by: Anonymous

Grace, I'm so sorry that you didn't have a good mother. I can relate; I, too, grew up in a world where everyone always seems to be arrogant, mean, cold, selfish, heartless, cruel, uncaring, narcissistic, unfeeling, blind, deaf and evil. no one believed at all when I tried to tell them that my so-called family tried to destroy and kill me; in fact, they just stood there and mocked me, saying that everything was pretty much "my fault", that I "deserved to be punished for being bad", that I "only break the rules in the house", that I "never listen to my so-called parents", that I was "just trying to dishonor my so-called family" et al...so that was when I finally lost trust in everyone...and with that, all I have is my boyfriend because he is the only person who truly cares about me. What your so-called mother did to you is very sadistic, sick and cruel, and she needs to be incarcerated for all those terrible crimes that she committed against you, so the sooner you tell someone, the better. Darlene and Jordyn are right! Grace, please tell someone and keep on telling until they will finally wake up and listen to you! I wish you all the best!
