Therapy CAN be life-altering...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Vicki, it is not unusual for an abuse survivor to take "years to understand how much [s/he] needs therapy". The reason for this can be varied. What often happens is that the person plain old gets tired of the effects they've suffered for years, effects they sometimes did not recognize as effects at all because that person was so wrapped up in the illusion that all was—is well; which of course isn't. What can also happen is that certain memories or situations are triggered when the person enters into a particular stage of life that awakens the realization that s/he needs help. I'm so glad that you reached that point, regardless of how you got there. Congratulations!

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I wish you all the best in your work to "get back in touch with the little girl who was so mistreated and abused". I know only too well what you are going through. I also know that going through it is life-altering. You certainly deserve such life-altering...revelations.

Vicki, as a rule, I post additional installments a day or two apart from one another; I will post your second submission either tomorrow or the next day as a story of healing and recovery.

Hi Vicky. I haven't been on this site in a while and just saw your comment to one of my posts. I am so sorry to hear that you are still in the middle of the abuse. I know how you feel because I was there. I can tell you that keeping the secret is the worst thing you can do. The things that are happening to you can take a lifetime to deal with -- I am an example of that. Please, for your safety, sanity, health and well being --- find someone you can trust --- an adult -- a school counselor or nurse -- a police officer -- someone needs to know what you are going through. You are only a child and you are a victim -- you need someone to know so they can step up and protect you. My prayers are with you.
