From what you've stated, your mother was abused as a child and she didn't break that cycle of abuse. That's not an excuse; it's an explanation for her distorted way of thinking. She is seriously disturbed; and you and your sister are paying the price for that. I know you think there aren't people you can turn to, but there are. Please consider contacting one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially. And no matter what your mother says, you are most definitely NOT worthless or stupid, or any of the lies she is spewing. You are worthy of dignity and respect. And you ARE lovable. Always remember that. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

talk to childline
by: Im a soldier

Your story is just as bad if not worse, you are suffering from emotional and physical abuse and still suffering. Your mother may be stressed but she is not fulfilling her motherly duties she is abusing you and your sister, it was wrong for the police to do that you should contact childline werever you live you can phone in confidence, tell them what you wrote on here tell them the police did not believe you. Whoever dealt with you origionally should be investigated for negligence, please follow this and let me know what has happened. One last note you are preciouse and strong for surviving this and believe me you are well liked, your mother might be remembering what her parents were like but it is up to her to ensure you live a better life as a mother it is her responsibillity.

investigation....?
by: My Two Cents

I couldn't believe what you wrote. In this day and age, why on earth would the police investigate and not child welfare?? Police don't necessarily specialize in abuse investigations since they wear so many hats (investigate crimes, traffic control, drug interdiction, and so on) and I have always thought that the 'rule' for a child abuse investigation was for child welfare to investigate? Gah!

This makes my blood boil. You did what you were supposed to and told people what was happening, they helped you to tell someone else, and then the police get involved....sigh.

Unfortunately, sometimes the wrong people are brought in, the systam doesn't work properly, and the abuser's threats are "proven", for example, "no one will believe you if you tell." And the child is left in that situation.

The only thing you can do is to tell and keep telling until someone hears you. Darlene has a lot of hotlines listed that might help you locate a more open minded child welfare agency in your area.

I hope my ranting helps somewhat. Be well.

My Two Cents.

Trisha, your mom has problems and she needs help...but you need help too, so the sooner you tell, the better. Please tell someone you really trust.

to clarify the cops i told where two military cops and also there was a lady from the state she might have been from child welfare but i don't know.
The main reason was because i said she abused my sister and when they confronted her she denied everything....
