I had to edit your story because it did not fit into my template; there were too many characters. If you choose to include what I had to edit, you can do so in the form of comments. However, please do not use names of people here. I do not permit the use of names that can identify who you and others are, which is another reason I edited your story. Anonymity and privacy are paramount on this site.

Regarding what you've endured and what you learned, I can only imagine what it must have been like to get the jaw-dropping news that someone else was your biological father. It set in stone for you the reason that the man you thought was your father treated you with such disdain. You can't change or control what others do or say. You can only control what you choose and how you respond. This is going to eat you up and haunt you for a long time if you don't get help for the feeling of betrayal and abandonment. Please consider seeking out some form of counselling in order to help you deal with all of this. You didn't deserve to be abused. You didn't deserve to have the truth kept from you. You do deserve help for the fact that both have happened to you. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Such Horror
by: Anonymous

Robert, I can't believe that the man you had to refer to as "your dad" would steal all your Bar Mitzvah money from you, steal all the money from your uncle, talk crap about your loving and caring grandparents (sorry about your grandparents) and even abandon you to the so-called care of that equally sick monster of a mother (and allow her to beat and berate you everyday)! How dare they! They were twisted in their own ways of thinking and they should've known better and loved and cherished you. Oh, and chasing you around the room with a knife is a cowardly thing to do because only cowards do that to such a helpless little boy you once were. Oh, and you are not to blame for their sadistic, messed up behavior; they are to blame because abusers always choose to abuse. You were the child; they were the adults; they had all the power and only misused it over you. I hope that you are in a safe place now and that you will try counselling.
