What you endured so many here can relate to, while others may not be able to. What most of us here can relate to is the pain of betrayal and abandonment. Your mother was so young that she was ill-equipped to deal with what life was throwing at her with a baby and the choices she was making for herself. Sounds as though she didn't have adults she could turn to for support. She likely chose the path she did as a result of being abused herself as a child. That path resulted in more abuse: you endured child abuse (emotional & physical abuse & neglect) and also you witnessed spousal abuse, a form of emotional abuse. But because of your mother's and father's ages, your mother was also dealing with child abuse at the hands of your father. And so the cycle continued. You say that you are "trying your hardest to break the cycle of abuse"...I believe it was Yoda of Star Wars who said: "There is no try, there is only do." Yoda is a fictional character, but there is wisdom in the quote. Each day you DO break the cycle of abuse, one day at a time, sometimes one minute at a time. But you DO break it. I commend and applaud your resolve, Jennifer. Keep breaking that cycle. You and your children deserve that. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Good going young lady. What a new resume. Mother and wife to someone you must really care for. You beat the odds and can now take on anything that needs to be done to stay where you are now. What a good story ending for the abuse you suffered.

I hurt when you said you were beat so badly you wet yourself. I can't tell you how many people I know who have been that frightened. That you have overcome your past is a miracle, and your new family is the icing on the cake.

I guess that saying is true- "Don't Mess With Texas" of Texans. They have a way of overcoming some tuff stuff and getting on down the road.
You are obviously one of them. Hats off to you lady. GPM

The Horror
by: Anonymous

Jennifer, you were given a raw deal because your parents (especially your dad and then some slimy brute that your mom moved in with) were so twisted that they didn't even know how to take care of themselves; let alone be parents to you. Oh, and I'm glad that some beast that your mom moved in with went to jail because, remember, abusers do not stop abusing until they are made to stop. As for that so-called boyfriend of yours, he should go to jail too for beating, berating and raping you because, like I said, even abusive boyfriends do not stop abusing until they are made to stop either. Oh, and as for your mom, I hope she goes to the woman's shelter as well as rehab and gets as much professional help as she needs. Oh, and I'm glad your husband is with you now because he is so sweet for doing that; I just hope that you try counselling.
