Please reach out for any resources that might be available to you in your community. Consider a women's shelter in your area. Also, the purpose of this website is to provide space for abuse victims and survivors to be heard, a space where visitors and I can offer encouragement and support, but not monetary support. This is why I removed your request. You CAN overcome what you endured as a child, Lauren, but you must first believe in your Self. You ARE worthy of dignity and respect and love. Start by treating your Self with that dignity and respect and love. I send you love, light and positive energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Horror
by: Anonymous

Lauren, I can't believe that your mom would abandon you to the so-called care of that sick monster of a stepdad and allow him to beat and berate you 24/7...how dare she! Shame on her for running away from you instead of protecting you from that beast! A mother who chooses such a sicko over her own precious daughter is the mother who doesn't deserve to have said daughter in her life. Oh, and all those nasty names that he called you are nothing but lies, thus showing that he not only has no respect for you, but that he even has no respect for women in general. If he didn't want to be there, then he should've had the courage to leave instead of sadistically abusing you. The path that he, along with your mom and even your late dad, chose is inexcusable. You are not to blame for their sadistic, ignorant behavior; they are to blame because they chose to abuse you. You were the child; they were the adults; they had all the power and only misused it over you. I really hope that you're in a safe place now, that you try counselling and that you look into reporting that sick brute.

Hi Lauren,
I just want to tell you that there is hope for you.You are an amazing person.How could I not believe you?I understand you clearly.I have gone through quite a traumatic time myself and was diagnosed with the same thing PTSD.It is quite easy to believe you because sadly as it is there are evil people.God observes these people but He is not in their lives.Evil people live in darkness.God is the light of life and is loving.
It wasn't your fault.Your mother should have had her boyfriend arrested and charged.I believe you can still charge for this.However you must get all the councelling you can.You deserve it.Your family went against you out of fear.However I as a mother I would've given no second chances for any man.I would never put my children 2nd to anyone and would have had no problem having him arrested for what he has done.There is nothing to think about when it comes to protecting my children because it is a natural instinct to do so.As for your mother I would have her charged as well for putting you in harms way.There is no excuse for that at all.You are on the right track about getting help.I am amazed at the order you think in to put your life in order. For one thing you are still very young and can turn things around at your early age.Some people wait for many years before they reach out.You go and take a step in faith and trust God because He will give the desires of your heart.Maybe get the councelling first so you can stabelize yourself
in order to study properly with confidence and strength.PTSD is not easy to deal with and can butt into your studies.You have an amazing story that shows you have an amazing strength.I can see you being a police officer but get yourself together first because YOUR WELL WORTH IT.
Thankyou for sharing your story.I know you will make it and be an example to others.Right now it is your turn.May the Lord Bless you always.

Samesame!

Dont worry- I believe you . After all I hav been through I believe anyone. My dad had me in diapers until I was 15 years old. He would tie them so I cudnt undo them. Sometimes he wud fill it with pins or bugs so I cudnt sit down he wud only change it about oncE a week. I was completely naked the whole time. Even when I started growing breasts he wudnt give me anything to where. Instead he would poke them and smile. He wud try and murder me and so much more. He killed my sister. All the best for the future, just remember to be strong and live your dreams.
