Great attitude!
by: Darlene Barriere

Congratulations on being clean and sober, Melinda! And congrats for making the decision to better your life; LPN's are highly regarded because they have a reputation for selflessly helping others. I commend you for the decision to go into this admirable line of work. I also commend you for finding the inner strength to face those terrible, lingering demons you've been fighting for so long. I know how scary that can be, but you are definitely worth the positive outcome.

Not Your Fault
by: Francine

I'm so sorry about what your mother did to you. She doesn't ever deserve to be a mother nor a grandmother, unless she can admit that whatever she did to you is wrong and then apologize! You deserved a better life! If you are still having rouble, then I'd suggest for you to try some counselling. You also deserved for your "mother" to say, "Honey, I am wrong. I am very, very, very wrong. Please forgive me, baby girl, I'm so sorry."

my feelings

I was horrified and disgraced at the story and feel so sorry for those who suffer and I am glad it has never happened to me. Thank you for helping me understand about child abuse and the sufferers and generally about it.
Kind regards.

I am so sorry for your pain
by: Tara

Melinda,

I am happy to know you are getting help. Sounds like you are on quite a journey. Don't quit! You are strong and wonderful. You were put on this earth for a reason. You are important, or God wouldn't have made you! Keep strong, keep loving yourself. Peace and blessings I send to you!

You are very brave to say all of that. I know how you feel not trusting teachers when I was in 1st grade I also told my teacher and she called my house as well. My mother also lied about it, and really gave it to me when we got to the house. Stay strong, you will be a great stepmother.

WOW
by: LaSeanda

I am sooooo sorry that u had to go through all of that. That is crazy. I cant imagine the pain you went through. I can understand why you are scared. I would be too. I hope you recover very well. Please if you need anything write me and I will try to help. Please understand that I am 15 and I have been through a lot too. I was scared too and still am but not as much anymore I have been to many counselors and psychiatrists and am working on dealing with everything. I hope you and your boyfriend and stepdaughter are happy and safe. GOODLUCK!!!<3 xoxo LaSeanda Serna

I don't even know where to begin with tellin u how sorry I feel that u had to endure that type of childhood, but the reality of it is that it exists out there right in the open and no one does ANYTHING to help these children. I am in the midst of tryin to gain custody of my nehpews and the baby on the way because of child abuse from the father and neglect from the mother - and it is not even as bad as what it was for u - but the shitty part is that the gov't has been watchin them for 3 damn yrs and nothing but we r fightin as hard as we can now. Society needs to bring this up as a major issue, the fact that too many parents are being giving too many chances to "change" and the only ppl gettin hurt and screwed up/over is the children involved. When did the world become so messed up that no one cares anymore ... fight for the children to be saved. And I hope that u stay strong and grow off of those traumas - life can only hopefully get better.
