I understand the anger you feel toward your mother; it's anger that's earned. She was both abuser and enabler. You were betrayed and abandoned by her. She was sick, twisted and deeply disturbed. But that anger will overtake you and affect every aspect of your life. You are SO right that you need help. But there is NO shame in asking for that help. Shame would be to NOT ask for it. Pride can be a positive thing, but not when it interferes with your ability to see things as they are and reach out for what you need. And you NEED to see someone about the horrors of your childhood. Otherwise, the memories and feelings will haunt and consume you. You didn't deserve to be mistreated. You most definitely deserve help now that you have. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

It IS amazing...
by: Anonymous

...you made it.

It's just that those who choose to shut off from their abuse think you should too...those of us who confront it & feel the pain are the ones who learn to heal. It's a long road but acknowledging we survived is the biggest step!

Since you're an adult - can you get counseling? It is so important for your future. A good book is The Courage To Heal. I recommend it, :) It helps.
