I do hope that now that you live with your father that you are in a safe place. Don't worry about not having the "guts" to see your mom; she doesn't deserve to have you anywhere near her. And you don't deserve to be put in harms way ever again. Take care of yourself and allow yourself to be the growing young woman that you are. I also hope you have access to some form of counselling in order to help you deal with the repercussions of coming from such a terribly abusive environment. You certainly deserve that kind of help. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

A sadistic monster for a mother
by: Anonymous

Joselyn, you were the child. She was the adult. She had all the power and she only misused it. I really hope that your dad is keeping you safe now and that you try counselling.

Please be safe, Stay safe, and always believe in yourself
by: Maurice

Through my jorneying in life in many places I have experienced and learned alot from the people I was blessed to cross paths with; I have true and trusted friends who have helped me alot about the workings of the male/female species of human beings. My women friends told me and tell me that there is a sadistic and mean steak in a percent of women worse than men. I I do believe that to be true and your story re-affirms that. You were unlucky to be birthed by such a woman: Stay away from her: Darlene the prover that there is life after abuse. Read her comment JoselynC get her motherly and woman's heart empatthy for you in her empowering and loving words to you. Value and respect yourself, your body, don't allow another to abuse it or molest like that woman did. You sure experienced abuse in a real and serious way which ou never deserved and no parent should harm their children in such a way. Hi have a healthy mind in a healthy body: Oh yes Joselyn C I believe in that for young people: Get out there being active and alive with you friends (great you had that one friend to tell) I hope you still have her in your life or indeed similair friends. Class mates and like-minded people your own age taking part in sporting and cultural activities. I remember when I was at scholl 24/7 and we were all bruised and marked from the beating we got on our bottoms never minded that the other boys saw them because we were all in the same boat: You having to go to school with jeans and long sleeves to cover up your bruise and marks must have been painful and humiliating for you: to be dressed differently than your class mates who were probably young girls like you: Have confidence in yourself now and taking part in team sports allows you a natural way to show off your body now acknowledgeing it is beautiful and special to you after all your mother did to it. Always stay safe, be safe don't allow another to abuse your body ever again. I Won't Maurice: live well well laugh alot, love much. and always believe in yourself; I will, I can, I must, because I am WORTH it. Now hug and cuddle that wonderful me in the MIRROR. A recent visitor replied to a comment I made after saying this, she was right when she said it is hard to cuddle and hug the me in the mirror after your body has been abused: She wasn't ready yet to do it, I hope she will in time. I believe bare is beautiful and hugging and cuddleing it is most natural; Sure ye women spend hour being gentle and kind to it and making yourselves look good. Love yoursleves Naturally in front of the mirror. Era go on you'll feel great after it.

Don't have the guts?
by: K.C.

Don't think hat way. Think of it as your strong enough to not go back to her and continue with the abuse. Sorry if this hurts your feelings but I think she should be locked up for what she did to you.
