With all due respect, "good" mother's do not put their children at risk and in danger by bringing in men that are abusive. Good mother's do not leave their children behind to go off with their boyfriends and do whatever it is they choose to do. Good mother's do not neglect their children. Good mother's protect their children. Good mother's ensure their children are kept safe, warm, clothed, fed, and most importantly, loved. Your mother did none of these things. I strongly suggest you seek out some form of counseling in order to help you deal with the abuse at the hands of your mother's boyfriend(s), the betrayal and abandonment of your mother AND grandmother, and to help you put things in proper perspective. You didn't deserve any of what you had to endure. You didn't deserve to have to be the mother for your siblings. You deserved to be treated with dignity and respect and love. You deserved to have a childhood. And you deserved to be believed. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

i'm speechless
by: angelica

oh my gosh. Hunny that's a terrible thing to happen to somebody your age. i know because i was physically and emotionally abused for my whole childhood by different people including almost all of my family members until i was 15. i'm 17 now. it makes me so sad to hear it happened to others. i know what it's like to have people not believe you. and to call you a liar. i have a hard time trusting anybody now. i'm so sorry to hear about your abuse hun, but if there's one thing i've learned it;s that you should never keep it hidden just because you think it's not as bad as someone elses. abuse is abuse. it's all the same no matter what or who. when my parents called me a brat and hit me or ignored me it hurt just as bad as when they molested me. i live with my grandparents who are the only non-abusive people in my family. i have an aunt and uncle who are not abusive but they weren't even around when i moved in with my grands. we tried adopting my other sisters who were also being abused, but my parents just refused and it's just a long story. i wish we could adopt and help every hurting person out there and save them from having to go through it anymore. i sure hope that you find love, hope, peace, healing and comfort soon in your life so you'll be ok. i'm doing much better now than i was so i know you can be ok too. even when the sadness makes you feel like you have no hope you just gotta keep holding on. don't worry hun you'll be ok and you're in my prayers.

I believe you! :)
by: Ann onnie mous

I know how you feel when you were left alone. I'm not left alone as long as you were but it's annoying and hard. I'm always upset to hear when so many kids, like youself, are expected to loose all childhood and as if by magic suddenly grow up. It wasn't fair what happedned to you. If i was your grandmother i'd be as supportful as i could and i'd listen and take in everything you said, dishing out advice and kind words wherever i possibly could!
