You're in a very dangerous situation; and I can't help but wonder where your mother is in all this! If you can't get protection from such violence from her, then you must act. I urge you to contact the Australian Kids Help Line at 1800 55 1800. KHL have counsellors who will listen to you and discuss your options. The service is available 24 hours a day for children, youth and young adults between the ages of 5 - 25. Their counselling services are free, confidential, and you can remain anonymous. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.kidshelp.com.au/template/standard.aspx?s=129&p=104&r=2&b=1

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The sooner, the better...Darlene is right!
by: Anonymous

Steph, a step-dad that is as sick and sadistic as yours should never have children, especially if he's incapable of loving them, nurturing them or even protecting them from harm. Oh, and he's wrong too. You're not a slut; you're not weak; you're not ugly; in fact, you are beautiful and strong. He is truly twisted, sick, cruel and sadistic in his own ways of thinking...not to mention a control freak with an ignorant mind. He certainly didn't deserve to have a beautiful stepdaughter like you, but, most of all, you certainly didn't deserve to have such an uncaring, uneducated, unloving, ignorant, animalistic, brutal, callous, heartless, sick, twisted, sadistic and ruthless stepfather. Oh, and making jokes about you "being weak" and even about "trying to kill you" really shows me how uneducated and ignorant he really is. He really needs to go to prison for all those terrible crimes that he committed against you, so the sooner you tell someone, the better. Oh, and whatever you do, please erase all the memories, including those about himself destroying your beautiful hair. Darlene is right. Please tell someone you really trust. I am hurting for you.

tell some one
by: michelle5

Sheph you need to tell some one who could help ring one of the hotlines as Darlene said or maybe some one else you can trust. How about your dad if he does,nt know he could help. You need to do some thing before its to late. You are worth so much more. You do not deserve to be beaten.You are not a slut please do not put up with the way this man treats you.My prayers will be with you.

It's Not Your Fault
by: Susan

He has no right to treat you that way. Please understand that the fault is his, not yours. You're not a slut, and it hurt my heart to hear he'd called you that. Please find a way to leave that household. God bless.
