TELL SOMEONE...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

To continue to harbor this ghastly and horrific secret is to keep it buried deep inside you to smolder. Those smoldering embers will reignite at some point, leaving you to face even deeper emotional scars. You said your stepfather got satisfaction from committing such a heinous act; if he is a psychotic pyromaniac he is a dangerous threat to everyone around him. That means that your little brother and your mother are in grave danger, as are you. Tell someone about this, someone who can help you: a teacher, school counsellor, any adult you trust. Contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about what happened. 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.

NOT telling may well haunt you. I point you to a story I posted yesterday by Krystle. While her story is different than yours, the guilt and shame she now experiences from not telling could well be you in the near future.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I do hope you will heed my advice. Telling could very well save the life of someone you love.

Demon possessed man
by: Linda

I'm sorry you had it so bad. That man had to be possessed by the devil to do such a cruel thing to a child. Save your mom and brother from this monster and report the scum. He needs to be locked up somewhere away from society. I hope you find some peace and happiness in your life. I'm sure you will once you get that child abuser what he deserves. Thank you for your story. It helps me to read other victims stories, I don't feel so alone.
