You said volumes, even without the details of the abuse. Yes indeed, mothers can and do sexually abuse their children. Society finds it difficult to wrap their brains around this fact because who wants to believe that the caregivers, the nurturers, the ones who give birth could possibly commit such heinous acts against their children. But they can and do. As for the way your flashbacks started and the memories came flooding, I agree with you that it's your mind's way of telling you that it's time to deal with what you endured. The only way I know is through it, not by circumventing it. I hope you're in some form of counselling in order to deal with the repercussions of what you endured at the hands of your mother, and the betrayal and abandonment of the system. You certainly deserve that kind of help, Michelle. Thank you for sharing your story and your all-important message with my visitors and me.

Such Horror
by: Anonymous

Shelle, your so-called parents are wrong. You are not evil; you are a good, beautiful person. You are not unlovable, you are lovable. You are not a useless piece of flesh; you are worthy of love, dignity and respect, all of which you were sadistically denied of. You did not deserve to be beaten; you did not deserve to be abused in any way. Never believe any of those lies that they were spewing. Oh, and shame on the system for letting you down and not saving you from those ignorant brutes for parents when you were 13! Oh, and nothing will ever be your fault. You are not to blame for their sadistic, ignorant behavior; they are the ones to blame because, firstly, something's seriously wrong with them; secondly, they were not thinking right; thirdly, abusers always choose to abuse. You were the child; they were the adults; they had all the power and only misused it over you. Oh, and mothers who abuse their own daughters are, in fact, one of the real abusers. Oh, and most people who treat others the way you were treated often do it out of jealousy because they could never be such a beautifully shining star like you. Oh, and I hope that you try counselling.

Mother Daughter Sexual Abuse (MDSA) - there is not only support online but therapists these days know about it, it's no longer hush-hush.

I'm so sorry you had to grow up with a woman who didn't see you for the wonderful person you are, I wish you lots of healing.
