What I don't understand is why your father doesn't step up and actually BE your father. It's his job to protect you and keep you safe from harm. Your stepmom is seriously troubled. Whatever is wrong with her she's taking it out on you. Always remember that what she's doing is NOT your fault. Fault lies with her. I urge you to contact 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. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

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