What a strong young woman you are. You kept on trying to tell and you were such a strong support for your sister. I too had to distance my Self from my mother many years ago because of the continued abuse. Your mother chose her spouse and her own self-interests over that of her own daughter. That is HER problem, not yours. None of what happened was your fault; I believe you already know that, but I wanted to say it to reiterate the reality of it. Your mother was an enabler of abuse, which makes her every bit as responsible as the Monster, as you aptly call him. The fact that you are now in a safe place is fantastic. I'm delighted that you have such a strong support system in place, and that you are moving forward with your life. If you find that you are haunted by all that you endured at the hands of the Monster and your mother as an enabler, please seek out some form of counselling or therapy in order to help you deal with the repercussions. Your future goals can indeed turn pain into power by helping others who find them Selves in the same situation that you grew up in. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I send you love, light and healing energy, Jennifer.

The Horror
by: Anonymous

Jennifer, I can't believe that your mom would abandon you and your siblings to the so-called care of that sick monster of a stepdad and allow him to beat and berate you guys 24/7...how dare she! That isn't discipline; that's just torture...and just because dogs must be kept on the leash at all times, that still doesn't give him the right to torment you guys for taking the leash off of your family dog. Anyway, shame on her for running away from you instead of protecting you from that beast! I am disgusted by her reactions toward you trying to turn to her for help; children are supposed to come first; the mother who chooses such a sicko over her own precious daughters is the mother who doesn't deserve to have said daughters in her life. I'm glad that your grandparents are with you now because they're so sweet for doing that!

The tapes in my head
by: Donna

Hi, I am so sorry that you had to go through with that. I know how it feels. My worst problem was that after their abuse stopped I took over for them.
I have severe ADD and anything I learn or remember is a wonderful thing to me. But I was called lazy and slow, when I was twelve my mother told me that I had all of her bad personality traits as well as all of my father's bad ones, she was sorry but she just didn't like me. When you are twelve you already feel like you have 2 heads and both of then have bad hair. I did not need that rolling around up there too.
I had a lot of work to do to get rid of those. When I caught myself thinking the same things and what is wrong with me, I stopped right there and disected it. Was it true? Was it partly true? Was it a bold face lie?
Sometimes I decided I should work on things, some things could not be changed no matter how hard I tried. I had to learn to accept myself and it is not easy when you already feel worthless. But it can be done. I don't know if you are having these tapes running in your head or not but if you do, I want you to know that you can stop them.
Hugs,
Donna
