To No Shame:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I agree we all must do what is best for us. But I also know that sometimes what we think is best for us isn't. Your father is still drinking and has tried to take his life. If you have minor children, they are at risk if they have any exposure to him. This constant drama, coupled with what happened to you and your siblings as children, is taking it's toll on you. Please consider some form of counselling in order to help you deal with your trust issues and your panic attacks. You didn't deserve to be mistreated. You certainly deserve help for the fact that you were. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Thank you
by: No Shame

Hi Guys

Thanks for your kind words and advice. In relation to Maurice you dont understand why a mother would marry men like that and stand back whilst her children are being abused...I never understood it either to be honest. My mam tried to protect us she really did. She took the brunt of it most of the time. My dad manipulated her in such a way that she didnt know any better. Thankfully she does now.

I have tried councelling and I'll be honest I didnt like it. When I have my bad days I talk to Joe about them. I know people think its strange that I am still in touch with dad, but I feel I need to be. Alcholism is a disease beit one that is self inflicted but I love him he is my dad. My children are not exposed to him at any time and I wont allow them to be. I do not discuss my father around them. I doubt he will be around long enough to ever be apart of their lives but that is his choice and my children are my priority they come first.

Thank you for your kind words though. This site is truely amazing. xx
