by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You have NOTHING to be ashamed of. You did NOTHING wrong. You were a child being overpowered by an adult abuser and sex offender. Whether or not your mother knew, she knew he was abusing all of you; and as your mother, she owed it to all of her children to protect them. You were not in a position to be able to protect yourself from ANY of the abuse. As for blaming yourself for a rape because you were drinking, get rid of that thought once and for all! It is NEVER EVER the victim's fault. Period. End of story. Blame is ALWAYS on the shoulders of the offender because the offender chooses to offend. You were at much greater risk for sexual assault with the drinking, but that does not ever make it your fault. Please get into some form of counseling in order to help you deal with what you have lived through, and to help you with a safety plan in your life now. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

thanks
by: lucy

Thank you for your comments I can,t get it in my head how you can't judge me. Even my mother thinks I,m stupid I have spoke to her not about the abuse or rape I can,t but about the way I feel she just said the way you feel will pass that I,m just feeling sorry for my self and that I should,nt go down the doctors they will think I,m mad. Maybe she right I don,t know. I feel like I've lost the will to care about life.

stay strong
by: michelle5

you need to stay strong you need to do whats best to help you move on with your life you need to talk with a counseller. It will be hard and your want to quit but you must stick with it don,t give up on it. It will take a long time it won,t happen over night but you will see a light at the end of this. You won,t forget what has happened but you will be able to move forward from this and feel happy again. I am starting to look forward to life again now. I still get bad days but more good ones now take care.

by: Anonymous

This is very much like what happened to me except my father did not call me ugly he was just very aggressive. Someone raped me as well but i was seventeen and still am seventeen, i know who the person is and i see them around constantly. I was drunk as well to the point that i couldnt really move but was awake.

up date
by: lucy

Have,nt been on here for a while cause I,ve not long been out of hospital I did something really stupid about 2 1/2 weeks ago i tryed to take an over dose I felt it was the only way out, now I just feel stupid and can,t face anyone. On the up side at least now I,m getting the help I know deep down I need, and my mum is trying to be really surportive, but now I have a horrable long road ahead of me but hopefully I can be strong enough to get there and maybe someday I,ll learn to like who I am and not be ashamed to be me.

From Darlene - Webmaster: Lucy, first of all, I'm delighted that your attempt was unsuccessful; I'm SO happy that you're still with us. Secondly, please don't beat yourself up about your attempt. And thirdly, what you did was NOT an act of stupidity; it was an act of desperation. The help you need is now available to you. Be honest within that help, as difficult as it will be. It is through the process that healing can begin for you. I send you nothing but positive energy.

I hate feeling this way
by: Lucy

I got another counselling session tomorrow and not looking forward to it. My counselor thinks I should talk to my mum and my older sister also I can,t tell her what happened with her husband if I thought his was hurting my niece then I would but as much as I hate him for what his put me through I don,t think he would ever hurt her I hate feeling like this I don,t want to hurt anyone and don,t know what to do.

Your bravery
by: David

First of all you have started in the right way by talking about it, secondly your not worthless, ugly or stupid, thirdly you have everything to look forward to, start a new life be the real you, not everyone is like the guys who abused you and they are the ones that have done wrong not you. You come across as an intelligent and decent human being, be strong minded in a positive way, do the right thing and make a good life for yourself dont let them win and your the winner by getting on with your life and showing the world you can be happy and settled and that you do have a positive outlook and you have something special to give to the world and thats you the person. Your brave and positive already by talking about it but thats behind you now, put it away be the person you want to the kind loving and clever woman you really are, your the most important person and deserve a good life from now on so grasp life and happiness put the evil and bad people away from you and show everyone who you can be. Hope this helps. Get on with your life your worth living and the people who have hurt you dont even merit being thought of by you. take care. David.
