You were "groomed" by that priest, betrayed by that doctor, and your parents were sick and twisted in their thinking. But if you paint everyone with the same brush, you'll never find the peace you need. And you need peace in your life. You need to reconnect with your Self. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Hi Nick,
I read your story and it brought tears to my eyes as I read it. I wrote on here about my 5 year old daughter's abuse by her father and have never thought about how some children go through far worse situations. Yours is indeed one of these. I hope and pray that you can heal from all the hurt, pain and loss of respect that you feel towards people. The ones that you were supposed to be able to trust, inflicted abuse of all descriptions upon you.

You appear to have a very good mastery of literacy and I hope that you continue in your education so that one day you will be in a position to help others who are going through similar situations.

I am so sorry that you went through what you did, but know that there are about 90% of people in the world who would have taken you away from all that and given you the love and affection that you deserve.

Know that you will find others you can trust and they will never hurt you. I will continue to pray for your steps towards healing. Know that you will be stronger and more loving because of your past.

Will all my best wishes and hope for your future,
Love,
Helen

Not your fault
by: Anonymous

Nick, your parents were wrong. You are not retarded; you are smart and articulate. You are not worthless; you are worthy of the love and dignity that you deserve. You are not a loser; you are a winner. Ever the death of one of your sisters still has nothing to do with you; in fact, your parents and even that sick excuse of a priest are to blame. You were the child; they were the adults; they had all the power and they only misused it. Oh, and even burning your hand on a hot stove is really a cowardly thing to do because only a coward will do such things to a helpless little boy that you once were. Those sickos should've known better and loved and cherished you in the first place. I really hope that one of your brothers will treat you better than those sickos did and that you are really in a safe place now; I just hope that you will try counselling. You are in my thoughts now.

i dream for another day at life
by: Heather

When i read your story i felt as though i related to it in everyway. I was abused physically and emotionally, but i was never raped and/or melested. Hopefully i never will. I still now at age 13 am hopeing for another chance at life and that things will hopefully get better. My mom could care less if we are there or not, but i cant leave my little brother and sister behind. I hate the abuse and try to prevent it from happening to my youger siblings, but i only have 5 more years and another day is something i could change for somebody. I dont have alot of friends (i dont trust anybody) but my siblings need me and i need them so i basically fight for another day.
