You don't ever have to worry about rude comments coming through any of the stories pages on my site because each comment is not only read by me first, it doesn't go live on the site unless I deem it to be supportive, encouraging or in some way positive to the contributor. it's a commitment I've made to all my child abuse story contributors. About your story, it's shocking that you would be allowed to live with your obviously violent father after he spent all those years in prison. Given the length of time he spent in prison, I would gather it was for a crime that was violent and/or drug related. I'm asking what would possess the authorities to put you at such risk. Shameful. There are two things I'll say: One, don't try to reconcile with your father. It's too way dangerous for you and your children. Two, please consider some form of counseling in order to deal with all the effects that growing up with such brutal abuse has left you with. You didn't deserve to be abused. You certainly deserve help now that you have. Not only do you owe it to yourself, you owe it to your children. They deserve to have a physically and emotionally healthy mother. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

i really appreciate both your comments it has helped me alot as i am still contempleting what i really have to do since this has been up i have finally have family standing by me as they never beleived me with what happened they all feel guilty about it im not sure whether i shloud believe them at this perticular time as it only early. i feel lost with them, as they have said that this man is longer allowed any where near them and not welcome at their homes. he has threatned them too as because i was friends with my family on face book. i love my family but they all have lied to me. and the main one that hurt me was (dad). i am medicated currently and slowly getting over the night mares. the panic attacks. but it still takes time. i still have flash backs with him coming to kill me. im sorry if i sound like im complaining about him but i have no one to talk to about him. unless i see a professional which i will after the floods have sorted stuff.

From Darlene - Webmaster: Jessica, I believe in meeting people where they are in their lives, but I also know that sometimes that place is a place that one cannot get out of easily. This is why I hope you'll go into counseling to help you sort through the "floods" as you say. Also, please note that I've removed your full name and also removed the name of your dad. I ask that you not use names (other than Jessica G or a pseudonym for your dad) in order to keep your anonymity, and so that you can stay safe. Thank you for your understanding, and good luck to you.
