Always remember that what your mother did to you was not your fault. This was about her, not you. Your mother has severe problems that she took out on you and your siblings. She needs help for those problems. And you need help dealing with the repercussions of coming from such an abusive environment. If available to you, talk to a college counsellor. Find out what resources are available to you, and then take advantage of them. You did not deserve to be so badly mistreated. Now that you have, you DO deserve help in dealing with the fact that you were. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Even animals would never treat their young so sadistically
by: Anonymous

Victoria, your "mother" is wrong. You are not a "b****"; in fact, you really are smart and articulate, not to mention worthy of love and respect. Your mother is really sick and twisted in her own way of thinking. She didn't deserve to have such beautiful, wonderful children like you and your siblings; but most of all, you guys certainly didn't deserve to have a sick, twisted, sadistic, unloving, uncaring, cruel, ruthless mother. I am delighted that you are in a safe place now; I just really hope that you and your siblings will try counselling.

Great you have found Darlene's site. Ever so brave to share your story
by: Maurice

I am in revulsion at what I have read your mother did to you and your siblings: She sure needs loads of help. Darlene has given you affirmation. she knows how cruel and uncaring your mother was. Your honest telling of what she did to you, beating you, humiliating you. making you feel unwanted: You Victoria P will be a winner, It was not my fault, I nor my siblings are to blame for what she did to us. It is ever so sad that she did not love and cherish you as her own flesh and blood. Hi Victoria betwwen the lines I read the hope that is your heart to succeed and make a life for yourself. Look after yourself first. get counselling, have a real friend or two whom you can love and trust who will love, trust and respect for who you are NOW. Take control of your life, be in charge of your own destiny NOW. I can, I will, I must, Darlene has proved there is life after abuse she has turned her abuse experience into empowering al her visitors that is why I said it is great you found her site. Believe all she wrote to you in her comment, act on it, and your life will begin to turn around for you. Have a healthy mind in a healthy body. Oh yes Victoria P your are 23 years of age no better age to begin having such. So get off your bottom, get out there with like-minded fellow students taking part in team sports, walking, climbing, swimming, etc. also join some of the cultural activities in your College. Say it is my life NOW I am going to make the difference. Think Positive, Act positive, Be Positive in all you do and say. Build up you Self Worth, Your self esteem. begin by having a good mirror image of yourself. Look at the me, be gentle and kind to that me in the mirror. Admire the beauty of the me. soothe and massage that cuddle love into
yourself: it ain't a silly thing to ask you Victoria P. You'll feel really good after it all. Sure there is nobody looking at you even if you feel it is a bit silly to be asked. Okay, once you care for your every need you will give courage and hope to your siblings to work at there lives. Your Mother was not a good Mother, stay your distance from her so you won't be reminded how bad she was to you and your siblings. My prayers are with you.

i understand

as a victim of child abuse, myself i can completely relate. my mother did just about the same things to me, give or take a few. i read your story at nineteen, and see the same repercussions with my siblings. my 12 year old brother is in juvenile hall for a violent offense. it scares me. it sickens me. and it makes me feel guilty. having also felt the most severe effects of my mother's abuse, for some reason, i experienced the same loneliness and self loathing. i pray for you right now. and i am so proud of you for having a purpose, and letting life circumstances REFINE you, not DEFINE you. stay strong.
