Please use the same name for all your submissions...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Jess, please, if you want to write additional submissions you're welcome to, but don't use another name. There is a great deal of work for me in posting everyone's stories and leaving comments for them. That work is made double when I recognize that the name being used is not the correct name. I trust you understand my position. Secondly, I strongly suggest you read the comments I left at the following URL in order to get a different perspective on the issue of confrontations: How do I deal with family members who abused me and my siblings? Thank you for sharing more of your story, thoughts and feelings with my visitors and me. Feel free to write again if writing helps you.

Please be respectful and thoughtful. She's one great and busy woman.
by: Maurice

I gave such a high respect for Darlene and her genuine efforts to be ever so sincere and honest with each of us who visit her site that we need to be aware she is one busy Lady. Her comments deserve respect because they sure put us on a journey of healing from our abuse. Jess D great reading more of your story. your making great progress in your healing, be well prepared in your own mind when you confront the very sick individual who did awful things to you. Don't stoop to his level rant and rave, argue and fight. be cool calm and recolllected. before meeting with him do as Darlene suggests first and read about how to confront one's abuser. Be prepared. Great you are wanting closure but be sure to have good people around after you've confronted him. even your therapist. Be brave and stay strong for yourself.

From Darlene: Maurice, Jess and other visitors, I just want to be clear that I do not advocate confronting one's abuser, and that I do not offer advice on how to go about that. The link I've provided in my comment above shows what generally happens when one does confront, and how such a confrontation can lead to more victimization.
