I believe you
by: Darlene Barriere

What you said was very okay, Nancy. It came from truth and that's what I ask of my story contributors.

You talked of being molested by an eye doctor, and that you didn't tell because you were afraid and ashamed. I want you to know that your father's treatment of you, and the fact that your mother and other adults did not protect you from his abuse, set you up for being sexually abused. You have nothing to be ashamed of. You did nothing wrong.


And you certainly didn't deserve being treated so badly by your father. You deserved to be loved and respected. The fact that your mother didn't do her job as a mother and save you from harm makes her just as responsible as your father.

I sincerely hope you find help for yourself, Nancy. The best thing you can do for your son is to take care of his mother; he deserves, indeed he has a right, to have his mother in a healthy state.

I Feel Your Pain
by: Francine

OMG I can't believe what you had to go through! Your father should be sent to jail, cuz I'm very sorry about what he did to you! He doesn't ever deserve to be a father nor a grandfather! You are not stupid; you are not worthless, you are NOT even a whore! You are talented, beautiful, smart, worthwhile, and everyone loves you, not your "dad"! I would reccommend that you should go for counselling so that you could've gotten out of your system even faster than now! I will pray for you all night (and whoever will be next). Peace.

Please get counseling to help you through
by: Tara

Nancy, I read your stroy and I am so sickened by what was done to you. Please seek out counseling to help you deal with your pain. You are a mother and you need to be the best you can for your baby and yourself. NO ONE desrves to be treated like that! Please know and believe me, a total stranger, when I tell you that you are a beatuiful, strong, amazing person. You are a creation of God. You are somthing special. Look at what you have went through and you are still here. You have a purpose. You need to heal and find your true self. You were beaten down, but you can rise above it! My peace, love and blessings are with you. ~Tara

Be strong
by: Anonymous

Make sure you get whatever help you need in order to deal with your pain. It's not right, what you had to endure as a child. But, the most important thing in your life now is YOUR child. You need to be the best mother you can be. And, while you can't change the way you had to live your childhood, you CAN make sure that your child has a wonderful childhood. I know there is no way you can erase the pain or the memories....but do the best you can to be at peace that it is all over, and be joyful that you have a beautiful child and do your best to make your child happy, and find pride in the fact that you are a much much much better person than your abuser was, and know that you are a good person who will raise your child the way a child is supposed to be raised.
