TELL someone...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Jenail, you need to tell someone what is happening to you. Talk to a teacher or a counsellor at school. You don't deserve to be treated the way your mother and cousins are treating you. You don't deserve to be told by your mother that she wishes you had never been born. You don't deserve to be beaten by your mother. You don't deserve to be sexually molested by your cousins. You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. You deserve to have a loving and caring and nurturing mother. You deserve to have someone in your life protecting you from harm. Your baby sister is NOT better than you; you are PERFECT exactly as you are. Don't believe anything else.

And don't for one second blame yourself for any of the abuse you are suffering, and have suffered, through. None of it was, or is, your fault, Jenail. NONE OF IT! You didn't let your cousin molest you; he took advantage of your innocence.

If you're not comfortable talking with someone face to face, I urge you to contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone there about the abuse you are still dealing with. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, but they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse. And I really hope you do disclose, Jenail. You are too precious to NOT report.

i am very sorry for your story
i have been reading a lot of them today and yours a can relate to the most im almost 15 (kind of your age) and i kno how it feels
my whole family (brothers and sister)ran away and left all the pain for me i try to make it threw it and hearing your story helps im not alone hearing how someone who is supposed to have that unconditional love for there child doesnt is a true tragety. the words stay stuck in your mind forever. well in my mind they do. the memories are the same also but knowing your not alone should help. i just want to let u kno you will get threw it and when its all over you will be really strong for surviving it hope things get better for u fast.
