Thank you
by: Briana

Your story really inspires me. Thank you so much for sharing. I am 17 now and until the age of 15 i was physically and sexually abused by my mother. She used to make me do all kinds of things to her and she used to do stuff to me. It was soooo awful. I still can't seem to get over all of it. I told myself I could never ever have kids, especially not a daughter because it would be too creepy and scary and bring back so many memories. I am so glad you were able to move past what happened to you. I am still scared of the word mother or even becoming a woman because i don't want to be like my mother. I know that sounds stupid but I can't seem to just forget and move on.

I don't talk to my mother anymore. I hate her so much and I refuse to see her so I don't have a relationship with her at all. I respect that you still talk to your mother even though its not a mother-daughter relationship. I am too scared to even talk to mine.

Your story has made me think and given me a little hope that maybe one day i might be able to have kids and move past it. I am so happy for you! :) Thank you for sharing

half full , half empty, yours full , lucky
by: Anonymous

contine hero mom

i also wonder now that you talk about this the hero thing, many of the little things time and place my family gave me to show they cared and all
the little things they said and did and said thankyou while others didnt know me
those ones those children they were the rewards for all my good as mom and all the sacrifices
the ones later if they dont know you understand
they dont seem to matter , what they think or say
and when and if you have more remember this
not all are going to be so special your girl
and well some see half glass full and half glass empty. hope yours all full up your family wish you luck.

Mommy is my best friend it is a healing love tablet
by: maurice

There you go Kym a loving healing healthy tablet from your 16 year old daughter and I've no doubt she influences her baby brother by her love and respect of you. Be true to yourself, you are a winner over abuse, you have a sister who loved you you, I am sure hugged you, wiped each other tears in the telling of what happened between you and your mother. Sadly she has the name of being your mother but she sure was far from being so in abusing you the way she did. Oh kym, you have worked through alot, I agree with Brianna when she says your story is an inspiration to me. You can be assure Kym it will be an inspiration to many of Darlene's visitors who read it. I was reared by a single mom. Mother's mean the world to me, thankfully 90% of them are real and true. Your siblings and yourself were just the unlucky to have a sicko of a mother. Not the best, She is as you say your biological MUM so there is nature there between you and her. Great you have realised that you don't have to be a mother in your own right like her. She sure knew how to abuse you, neglect you, giving you a bad start to life, foster homes, adoptive home etc. great you held your head high and believed in yourself. You are a winner over abuse. Please live your life now to the full, get all the help and support you need accepty yourself as being wonderful and beautiful. If you are not in counselling then you might think about attending a few sessions. It will do you a world of good, benefit you no end, give you good feelings about the beautiful mother woman you become to your chldren. Live Well, Laugh Alot, Love Much. I can, I will, I must because I am WORTH it. especially for my children. Mammy is my best friend, A heartfelt loving thought from a beautiful child and daugther Kym.
