It is SO disturbing that when an abused 11-year-old child finally stands up to and defends himself against his abuser, the police are so quick to send the child away to be locked up, but when a parent (a full-fledged adult) hurts a child, they are always given the benefit of the doubt while the helpless child is ignored. It's amazing that you survived your childhood. The best recommendation I can give is to seek out some form of counseling. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Patrick, what a sick, cruelly insane, deluded mother you had to beat, offend and berate you 24/7...how dare she! Oh, and shame on the officers for dropping the ball! The path that she, along with your dad and your other abusers, chose was inexcusable. Oh, and I'm sure that they were acting like little kids trapped in grown-up bodies because they were stuck in their own childhood. Children are gifts to be treasured, not abused. You deserved so much better and you are not to blame for their sadistic behavior; they are to blame because they chose to abuse you. You were the child; they were the adults; they had all the power an only misused it over you. Oh, and thank goodness you survived; I just hope that you try counselling.
