You truly ARE an inspiration! As for your father, he won't accept the truth because that would mean accepting that he has accountability in the abuse. You don't need that in your life. Be proud of who you are and the fact that you've turned pain into power. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Such cruelty
by: Anonymous

Laura, I'm sorry that you didn't have a good mother; I can relate: in fact, my "parents", too, really expect me to be perfect all the time even though the only thing I'm really perfect at is making friends. Oh, and I am glad that your aunt is with you now because she is so sweet for doing that.

It finally ended
by: Mike

I'm happy to hear it's finally over. It's always so sad to hear how long the abuse goes before it does end, but an end is always nice to hear.

I think the world needs more discussion and openness about abuse, especially child abuse, to help victims find out that they don't have to keep putting up with it.

I understand some
by: kristen

Hi Laura,

I am writing because I want to say you are not alone. I also want to say thankyou for posting. I always felt so alone and that I was alone in my abuse. This sounds so wrong and I apologise.

I remember being whipped for embarassing our family. I remember as a child having to sit quietly like a lady knowing full well that if I failed then I would be unable to sit.

I admire you for resisting. I had some half hearted times of rebellion but in reality they were short lived and ineffectual and I would just sucum to the punishment and comply.

I am so sorry to hear that your mother made you drink poison. So terrible. In that regard it never happened to me but I do feel and pray for you.

I am glad someone was able to help you. On the few occasions when someone suspected that something was hapening at home, I would clam up and defend my parents. So I am glad that it worked out for you.
