Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. If abuse is happening all over again, please take your own advice and tell someone who can help you. You don't deserve to live in such turmoil. And while I'm delighted that you have people in your life you've been able to trust, you deserve even more than that. Please talk to someone about what's going on in your house.

Keep telling
by: Anonymous

Kimberly, what your abusers did to you is truly pathetic and ungrateful. Good on you for telling; just keep telling someone you really trust, other than your caring grandma. I am sorry that you had to move in with that racist of a foster mother after you were taken away from your abusers. Like I said, please keep telling. Good luck!

I agree with Darlene. You know what you need to do, you wrote it when you shared with us. It's hard to take that step...but remember above all you deserve a life free of that. YOU are a good person. They're dysfunction is about THEM, not YOU. I will say a prayer for you tonight.

You are Brave and Strong.
by: Dan1

I really admire your bravery of when you stepped in and tried to get your father off of your mom. From what I know, not that many kids do that because of fear of getting hit or worse. I know that I wouldn't of been able to do that myself. The fist fight that you had I'm sure it was out of your control. They picked on you and you defended yourself which is ok. You didn't deserve anything that happend to you and none of that was your fault. I love the fact how you had "Hero's" ( Your uncle and your grandparents). That is something that I know every victom wished they had including me. What really hit me though was how your uncle held you tight almost protecting you, when your parents were going at it. I was in that same spot about 2 weeks ago when I went to visit my sister. Her and her husband were argueing in the living room and both my nephews were scared. I was surprised of how "rough" they were argueing. I took both my nephews to the other room and held them, comforting them and covering their ears so that they won't hear any comotions. You didn't really describe your uncle, but just for him being their for you, he's a man of respect. I hope that you're not going through any abuse at home anymore. Keep being brave and have your head up high. Don't let that poor excuse for a father even get close to bring or put you down.

There is help for you
by: Helen Louise

I agree totally with everyone else's comments and want to add this: I grew up in the same situation and after, I realized that the problem in the family was basically a lack of spiritual discipline. I don't mean what you find in church, although that can be a comfort. I mean that people who do the things that your mom and dad do have not learned to ask the question, What did I do to cause whatever happened? What can I do to make it better? And, to the universe, Please show me the way to wisdom.

You did not cause your parents problems, you cannot control them, you cannot fix them. But you can do something for yourself, by directing your thinking to find a better way. Those are questions that you are going to need to ask yourself, because your parents cannot teach you to do it.

There are groups that will help you to deal with the emotional suffering that you are going through. Alanon Family Groups, and Alateen, have lots of people who understand exactly what is happening to you and will give you lots of support, for free. They are people who have lived with the problems of loved one's compulsive drinking and drugging. They do not charge for this. They can help you to feel more serene and to live a happier life. I urge you to find their offices in the telephone book and to call them for help.

What you are going through is frightening and confusing. You need caring adults on your side.

Good luck. Thank you for your story.
