Sharayah:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Your parents have serious problems that they are taking out on you. And while I thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me, there is little anyone here can do to help you, other than to offer encouraging and supportive words. You need more than words right now. You're at risk for terrible injury if this continues. And the fact that you're turning to a boyfriend in what you believe is true love is very disconcerting. Yes, it's wonderful that you have support in him, however, you cannot escape what you're living at home in the arms of a relationship. Such relationships aren't built on healthy elements; they're built on getting out of an unhealthy environment. You're at risk for other forms of violence, even though you can't fathom that right now. A relationship with someone will not solve the problems you are dealing with at home. Please consider contacting Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are still dealing with. 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.

I Agree...
by: Jamie Songer

I totally agree with Darlene. but i think its your parents fault for not loving you and caring for you. i grew up in almost the exact same household when i was younger. but the abuse stopped now its just emotional. but youre very strong to still be alive and still living with ur parents. if your parents didnt want you smoking pot and drinking they should have talked to you about it and been better role models then instead hitting you and all that but i just wanted to let you know that you have my sympathy and i am always here.

Even animals would never treat their young so sadistically
by: Anonymous

Sharayah, you were given a raw crappy deal because your so-called parents are so twisted that they don't even know how to take care of themselves; let alone be parents to you. That's not even discipline; that's just torture and I'm sure that something's seriously wrong with them and they should've known better and loved and cherished you. Oh, and they're wrong. You are not stupid; you are smart and articulate. You are not hard to deal with; you are not terrible; you are a good, wonderful, beautiful person. You are not unlovable; you are lovable and we really love you. Don't ever believe any of those lies that they are spewing. Oh, and if they didn't want you to smoke pot/drink any alcohol again anymore, then they should've had the courage to talk to you about the effects of smoking pot/drinking alcohol and why you shouldn't be doing those anymore instead of sadistically abusing you in this way. The path that they chose is inexcusable. You deserved so much better than what your parents did to you; they didn't deserve you. Oh, and throwing hot boiling water at you is cowardly because only cowards would do such things to such a helpless little girl you once were. Oh, and laughing at you and mocking you for threatening to turn them in really shows me how uneducated and ignorant they really are. Oh, and you are not to blame for their sadistic, ignorant, 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 they only misused it over you, so the sooner you tell, the better. Darlene is right...please get away from this poisonous "family" and tell someone you really trust besides your boyfriend and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you. You can also try telling any sympathetic relative you have if you want. Anyway, don't let them destroy you; again, please look into reporting them.

Always believe in your self: Get help: You'll be fine
by: maurice

Sharayah: Just as Darlene said, all she or I and her many visitors can offer is our heart felt loving words for you: I can empatise with you from a distance: even imagine the what your body looks like after such horrific beatings: abuse: the mental trauma you have to endure from those two out of control beasts is how I would discribe them: You and your brother are their own flesh and bones especially your morhers as you were formed in her womb: Yet she treats you so dis-resepctfully, taking away your innocene, making you ever more vunerable with your father in this awful way they are treating you: You are a very highly intelligent adolecent/teenager even young adult thinking woman: You have endured being abused from the two people who should be loving and cherishing you and your brother: NOW getting back to Darlene's comment: You fully understand what she is saying to you Personally: Surround yourself with honest trusting individuals: Yes, it is great you have met a special person who cares, loves, values, resepcts, empatise's with you: Please for now don't call it love if he truly values and resepcts you he will allow you to be yourself: You need to admit I need real help (professional) like counselling/therapy for all my body and mind has taken and endured at the hands of these beasts: (They need to acknowledge how wrong they have been) Sharayah speak with a school/college counsellor or a kind understanding teacher who will put all you wrote to Darlene into perspective for you: Stay in education: be safe, stay safe: This may seem daft to be asked, I believe it could work wonders for you and indeed your brother: Think about having a healthy mind in a healthy body: I know your body is scarred from that boiling water you will have to live with that in place for maybe the rest of your life; Don't be ashamed of it, you did not put it there: be brave: take part with your friends and class mates in team sports: your Physical Education Program at school: Have confidence in yourself: ALWAYS BELIEVE IN YOURSELF Sharayah: Your brother who see's you enjoying being with your friends in a natural way will follow your example: Your Mother and father may try to prevent you because they will be ashamed of themselves for abusing you and others seeing the marks/scars they left on your beautiful body: You'll be fine, live well: laugh alot: love much: My motto from this day on will be I WILL I CAN I MUST BECAUSE I AM WORTH IT: Stay in education:

I'm trying my hardest
by: Anonymous

I totally agree with everything every one of you are saying, except for the fact that you don't want me to call what I have with my boyfriend love. It IS love, and I want the whole world to know it. He's one of the only people I can totally be me with, I've never felt so comfortable & safe with anyone in my life, & I've been with the kid for 2 and a half years. He loves me for me, and wants to be with me forever--we're working on that. He says I'm perfect the way I am, and I don't need anyone else to tell me that because I believe it. I am not simply trying to escape my surroundings through him, I'm smarter than that.I have been to counseling to no prevail because it just makes me feel worse. I have told several of my friends, and a few trusted adults who have told the authorities. But since there were no markings at the moment, & therefore, no proof of abuse, they marked it down in the records and that was the end of that.Two more years, & I will be out of the house & I know it. Until then, I will remain strong and refuse to back down, as I always have.
