Oh the harm that was done to you
by: Maurice

My heart goes out to you T. Your story is so real that I believe every word you have written so articulately and accurately. These are your awful memories of all the abuse that happened to you by all those uncaring sick individuals (animals) They ruined your innocence and your tender body at the most vulnerable time of your growing up. Your mother too was no great help to you. She was abused and beaten too and should have been more loving of you as her daughter, protected you from those who used and abused you doing and making you do awful acts for their own animalistic satisfactions. They do not deserve to be called Human. T now that you have found Darlene's site and her loving brief words to you in her comment are powerful words. I believe you as indeed will all Darlene Visitors, all abused in one form or another. Not as brutally as you were though. T I know you'll be a winner, You get the help of a counsellor/therapist and the help of your closest and most trusting of Friend or friends. A true friend for us who were abuse is a golden nugget. To be able to relate our most intimate of feelings with knowing we will be heard and listened to. Yes Believed T. I am certain you have a friend like that. Most of us do. Baring our raw inside feelings and soothing over the raw scars of abuse is healing. So T be brave, Love your beautiful body. hug it, be gentle and kind to it because only you now can keep it the beautiful body it is now. I can, I will, I must just for me. I'M SPECIAL AND I LOVE ME REPEAT A NUMBER OF TIMES EACH TIME YOU SEE THE ME IN THE MIRROR. A SIMPLE WAY TO BEGIN BUILDING UP YOUR OWN SELF WORTH AND SELF ESTEEM. I began doing it at 33 years of age and ever since I have encouraged my friends and others who have related their abuse story to me the benefits of it. At 62 years I love me. So T make your daily mantra I love me, don't just say it Believe it. Amen

U R Strong.
by: Saleen K.

Your story is very sad, but I am glad that you have moved away from all those ruthless people (if one should even call them humans, they seem worse than animals).Stay strong, although I know that its not easy to forget such awful memories, but trust and believe in God, and that Life will become better for you as time goes on, and always give love and show kindness, your own heart will be nurtured and eventually your low self esteem will become a thing of the past, and dont worry if people don't believe you. You know the truth and thats more important.

take care and God bless.

Note from Darlene: Saleen, I appreciate that you want to help T, but I have a strict policy against the inclusion of email addresses in comments and submissions because of concern for the safety of all my visitors. I thank you for your understanding.

Hey. I believe you :)
by: Cassie1

Just to say. I was once in your shoes. I was afraid that no one would believe me, or understand what happened to me, but then I started speaking out. I told my best friends, the ones I knew I could trust. I'm slowly being able to talk to my parents about certain addictions and things of that sort that they have. With a home of your own, you have that worry, and fear that you have to work through. I do not understand this, as I'm still in the same home. I don't understand what people say as the aftermath thing of abuse, but I do know that if you hold your head high, and stay strong, things will turn around when the time is right. Honestly what has helped me is turning to God with my problems. I found that that way I don't break down every night. The problems that I face are smaller when you have people that will listen. I can tell you that there are people out there that will sincerely listen, and try to understand to the best they can. It helps to know that not everything is on your shoulders. I'm not sure if you are religious or not, but I would like to say, that God lessens the weight on your shoulder. He takes it away, and helps you through life. I know if you face things the right way, things will slowly turn around, you just need to take the right steps. I hope this is of some help. :) Take care and God Bless you! I wish you many smiles, and laughs. I hope that you will be able to find the light at the end of the dark tunnel. There is always a light, no matter how dim. It's always there, you just have to find it. I wish you all the best! ~~Love~~ Cassie`

Get them!
by: Linda

Go to the police and have these perverts arrested for what horrendous things they did to you! Start with that narcissistic father and go down the line. They are probably molesting other little children like they did you. I believe your story 100 percent and I have sympathy for what you went through, because I had a father and uncle like yours and I let them destroy my life. I am fifty-two years old now and truly regret not seeing those men rot in prison. There are laws now, against child molesters and child abuse, by parents. None of that abuse was your fault, you were just a little innocent child. PEACE BE WITH YOU...T....Thank you for sharing your story......Linda

Sorry
by: Anonymous

Dear T,
I believe every word. What they put you through was wrong. None of it was your fault. Those people just had cold hearts. They don't care who is alive.

Male domination A Brute, an Animal does not seserve the name human.
by: maurice

Re-reading your story this monday morning made me sick and angry as to how a Father/Husband could pick on the most important people in his life You and Your Mother. Fear is one awful thing to have to live with and both you and your mother lived in Fear. Your Brothers co-abusers with your father and Cowards. To stand idly by and do nothing makes them very weak individuals. Your Mother is too scared and weak out of fear of this Animal that she cannot mother you and protect you T. Now at 19 you need to get away from that scene. I hope things have improved for you and your Mom since you first told Darlene and her visitors your story. My heart still goes out to you both. Surely there is one/two of your brothers man enough to stand by you both. Wimps if all five satnd idly by knowing what their Father did to You and Your Mother. Be brave and get help for yourself.
