You are SO welcome...so glad my site is helping you...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Kimberly, re-surfacing memories usually means you're more equipped to handle what you've buried in the past, much as that doesn't seem possible right now. You wrote that it is not possible for you to see a counsellor or therapist. Talk to your school counsellor. Perhaps there are resources available to you that you don't know about. And there is Child Help. Call them: 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453). As I've stated before, they are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you, and it's confidential. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help Suicidal thoughts is a clear sign of needing help, Kimberly. Call them.

Thank you for sharing more of your story, your memories and thoughts with my visitors and me. Feel free to write as often as you feel the need.

Older/Wiser braver and stronger in yourself
by: maurice

I'm a winner I am going to heal from my abuse I can, I will, I must just for me, I'm Body Beautiful, I love my body enough to be aware it is too beautiful for me to self harm it. Being abused is not my fault, I was innocent, vunerable when my Father took advantage of me and my brother. cruel and sadistic. He bruised and marked my beautiful skin. I am not going to do that. I am going to be gentle and kind to my body. I am going to erase those marks by sensitively sootheing and caressing my body. Kimberly please LOVE yourself enough to do that. Your older and wiser now and while it is difficult for you to talk with a counsellor/therapist never the less begin with yourself read and take special note of Darlee's words to you in her comment. She has arrived in a very special place in her life after her own abuse, she know best, I'm certain she too has encountered past memories like yourself from time to time in her latter years she knows what she is talking about when she say you are better equipped to cope with such memories NOW. Much stronger in your own mind in the best way to deal with them in a positive way. Hi Kimberly heed her words to you, I know you will you are stronger person now too to know what is the best way forward for you. Others abused your body DON'T YOU. Look in that mirror, hug that beautiful me in the mirror, erra go on you'll feel all the better for it. I know because it empowered me when I let go of my matcho image of my maleness and realized there was a lovely gentle side of me that I had not acknowledged for years. Because parts of my body were beaten because my abuser used it supposely as a from of discipline. I thought for a long time my body was dirty and naughty so I did not hug it for years. From time to time I recall the times that these beatings took control of me but I now let go of the memory in a positive constructie way and hug myself even more tightly. get the message
