I learned a very long time ago that the only way to really deal with the effects of child abuse, one must deal with the underlying causes. When we circumvent our emotions and bury the feelings associated with the abuse we suffered in an effort to try and "forget" about it, that only serves to make it more haunting. The effects only get worse. However, when we choose to go through it all, especially in a safe environment, in order to put it all into perspective and actually deal with the underlying issues, the repercussions begin to subside. We don't let go of the "stuff"; the "stuff" let's go of us. Please consider seeking out some type of counseling for yourself. Doing so can mean the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships, as well as a huge difference in the types of choices you make for yourself. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

I'm sorry
by: Anonymous

Latonia, what your abusers did to you is pathetic and ungrateful. You deserved so much better than what they did to you; they don't deserve you in their lives. Shame on your mother for running away from you instead of protecting you from those sickos! As for your aunt, I'm just as disgusted by her reactions towards you trying to turn to her for help; I hate women who choose men over their own children/nieces/nephews/grandchildren because children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews should always come first. I really hope that you are in a safe place now, far away from this poisonous excuse of a family and that you try counselling.

I'm sorry

I'm so sorry that you were sexually abused by your stepfather, uncle, aunt's boyfriend, and teachers. What made it even more horrible, is that when you told what happened, your aunt ridiculed and emotionally abused you, and your so-called mother ran away instead of helping YOU, her daughter. I hate women that choose men over their own children, nieces and nephews. You deserved so much more, and you have every right to be angry and resentful of your mother for abandoning you instead of helping and supporting you.

I hope you go to counseling so you can deal with the trauma from being sexually abused, emotionally abused, and abandoned. Good luck, Latonia!
