Your mother's brain is not working properly, and neither is your father's...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You are NOT stupid. You are NOT worthless. You ARE worthy of dignity and respect. You ARE lovable. You ARE smart and articulate and beautiful in your own right. Don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise. Your mother is not thinking right. The drugs have altered her brain, her judgment and her ability to function. I know you love her and your dad, though you hate what they'd done and what they continue to do. Always remember that none of what's happening in your home is your fault. NONE OF IT! Your mother doesn't use because of you; your mother uses because SHE is making up reasons TO use. She's an addict. Your mother's arrest may well do a lot more than force her into rehab. What you must now do is what is best for you and your younger brother. Drugs may always win for your parents, but they don't have to be winners in your lives. Tell someone. Talk to someone. Don't keep this in any longer. You and your brother deserve a whole lot better than the mess you've been dealt. Contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453). They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

by: maurice

Undisclosed 28 you are one beautiful 17 year old, Clever, Highly Intelligent, Gifted, Special, Unique, articulate in telling your story to Darlene and her visitors. My prayer for you is that you were so brave and courageous to relate your home life, your family life after finding Darlene site that now you will seek help from people who will LOVE and protect you. I would not add anything to the loving, understanding comment Darlene has made to you. I will ask you to read it over and over again and soak it into your Mind and heart. By doing so it will be your stepping stone to freedom and LOVING YOURSELF. Please find a counsellor, trust someone whom you have shared some of your home life with. Call this person friend, walk together for real strength to do what is the best for you now in your life at 17 years. Sadly your Parent's need total help for their mess of a life. I am not to blame for that mess. I am the unfortune child to be born into such a home/family. Always believe in yourself. with the help of real close friends and the advice of a counsellor build up your own SELF WORTH, SELF ESTEEM. Say, I can, I will, I must, just for me and my peace of mind and sanity. Darlene has offered you true LOVE in her comment please act on her advice

Your parents are out of control
by: Anonymous

Your mother is wrong...you are not stupid; you are not worthless; you are not bad...you are beautiful, smart, articulate and worthy of love and respect. Your parents have lots of problems and they really need help, whether they want it or not...and I'm delighted that your mother got arrested and I really hope that she will finally go to rehab with her husband together...but you need help, too. Please tell someone you really trust. I wish you and your brother all the best!
