Terrible childhood...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I hope you're not trying to go through this all alone. Please consider some form of counselling in order to help you deal with your haunting memories and the residual emotional turmoil of growing up with a raging alcoholic for a dad.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I hope doing so has helped you in some way. Just don't stop there. You're worthy getting help for yourself.

What the Hell?!
by: Francine

HOW DARE HE DO SUCH A DISGUSTING THING LIKE THAT TO YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND HOW DARE HE LIKE TO SWEAR AT YOU!!!!!!!!!!! I'm sorry that you didn't have a good dad...My dad, too, is very ballistic and abusive, minus the swearing (he does swear at me sometimes, though). Your so-called dad should've been in jail for the rest of his miserable...life. Awful man! BTW, he is wrong...you are not a brat, you are not a son-of-a-bitch! You are smart, kind, caring, strong, articulate and downright worthwhile. I hope you try counselling cuz you are worth it. Hang on!

I completely understand
by: Jessica

I read your story and it hit home closely. My "real" dad wasn't in my life and my mother married a raging alcoholic who I hated. He was ok when he wasn't drunk, which was close to never. He would drive my mom and I home after being somewhere and I really don't understand how we made it alive some of the times. It is most terrifying driving with a drunk who acts stupid on purpose. I, too contemplated suicide and even took sleeping pills almost daily for months just to avoid him. I purposely got pregnant when I was seventeen thinking it could be my way out. I am 32 now and still suffer the affects of the abuse I suffered. I really don't think I'll ever get over it. I've also been diagnosed bi-polar, although I don't have all the symptoms either. I would love to talk further with you, perhaps we could counsel each other.
