by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Your mother was one sick woman. I found myself asking if the grandmother who went to the bar with you in tow in a baby stroller was your maternal grandmother. It made me wonder because most children don't come out twisted and warped in their thinking the way your mother was. Such brutality and warped thinking usually happens at the hands of one or both parents; no excuses, just possible explanations. She had a choice; and her choice was to beat and belittle you. You didn't deserve that, Lyn-Dee. You deserved dignity and respect, and to be loved unconditionally, disabilities and all. I can understand you distancing yourself from her.

Your mother's deeply disturbing "slipped" comment reminded me of something I overheard my mother say to a friend of hers that I knew was about me when I was a little girl: "If I had a face like hers I'd shave my ass and walk backwards. That girl's got a kisser even a mother couldn't love." I certainly understand your feelings of ultimate rejection, especially when your mother had the gall to say what she said to your face...reprehensible. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. And feel free to write more if you find it helpful, Lyn-Dee.

Even animals would never treat their young so sadistically
by: Anonymous

Lyn-Dee, what that brute of a mother did to you was truly pathetic and ungrateful because she was a truly bad, sick, cruel, sadistic excuse of a woman who was also twisted in her own ways of thinking. She certainly didn't deserve to have a beautiful daughter like you; but most of all, Lyn-Dee, you certainly didn't deserve to have an uncaring, sick, unloving, twisted, cruel, sadistic, barbaric, animalistic, ruthless mother and she really should've gone to prison for all those horrendous crimes that she committed against you. I'm glad that you are in a safe place now; I just hope that you will try counselling. Be brave, Lyn-Dee, and stay strong.

It Pains me that I reading about another mother
by: maurice

Lyn-Dee You deserved your dignity and respect from the mother that birthed you. She was avery sicko of a mother. Through the years I have heard similiar belittleing of children by have said to them all your mother said to you. Very damageing to a child's mind in their tender years. A small percent of mothers should never be so. They don't value their own self worth, have no respect for themselves or their dignity. You were unfortuneate Lyn-Dee. Great you had inner strength and belief in yourself to stand up to your mother grand mother. You were very self-controleed just to tell her You won't abuse me again. Please don't lower yourself to reach their level of ignorance. You will make a great mother: Always believe in yourself. Your children will afford you the respect you deserve having come through horrendous abuse emotional and physical. Darlene's comment is loving, caring, empowering of you. use it to build up your Self-Esteem. Have a good mirror image of yourself. Love the me looking out at you: be gentle and kind to yourself and that beautiful body of yours. Erase the bad memories you have of what that Bad Mother did to you. By soothing/massageing nice smelling lotions/creams all over it making yourself feel good all over. You deserve that Lyn-Dee. I WILL: I CAN: I MUST: just for me because I am WORTH IT. Ok off you go, get the help Darlene suggests will beenfit you. She speaks from her heart to each of her visitors making her comment truly helpful and personal. She truly is a good woman. Believe her when she says There is life after abuse. She's the proof of it. So Lyn-Dee live well: Laugh alot: Love much: beginning with the me in the mirror.
