To John Doe:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

The mind can and does repress what cannot be handled. But that doesn't necessarily mean that the memory disappears entirely and will never resurface, if there's a memory TO resurface. As you move through the various ages and stages of your life, triggers can start the process of remembering. As you mature and are better capable of handling the trauma you've repressed, your mind can release the memories. At 22 years old, I too thought and believed I was "coping" well. But all I had done was bury the emotions, emotions that eventually resurfaced and threatened me more than anything I had ever before experienced. I realized I could no longer circumvent them; I had to allow myself to feel them, fully. I did this in therapy. And once I did, I didn't let them go; they let me go. I strongly recommend some form of counselling in order to help you deal with what you both suspect and know your mother did to you. You deserve that kind of help. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Such uncontrolled sadism
by: Anonymous

John, you were given a raw, crappy deal. Your so-called mom is so twisted in her own ways of thinking that she didn't know how to even take care of herself; let alone be a mother to you and your sister. She was also a sadistic brute and she should go to prison for all those terrible crimes that she committed against you guys because you guys did nothing wrong. Mothers who abuse their own children are, in fact, one of the real abusers. You are not to blame for her sadistic, perverted, ignorant behavior; she is to blame because she chose to offend and abuse you guys. You were the children; she was the adult; she had all the power and only misused it over you guys. I hope that you and your sister are in a safe place now. You might also want to try counselling and then look into reporting that sad, tragic excuse of a woman to prison.
