Comments:I am so glad I found your site. I am nearly 41yrs old, and I have recently felt this red burning anger in me. I cut my mother off at the beginning of this year as she chose to stay with my abuser after she found out when i was 16. I have been seeing a great therapist for 3 yrs on and off as needed. But this anger is very new to me, the last two months. It can no longer be held as it is a daily feeling now. I think Im going to box! Lisa ;)

I continued to be in one abusive realationship after another.My Daughter learned from me,now she lives with an abusive man.she has no self esteem about herself.she thinks she is not pretty,however she is very pretty.I now am married to a man that treats me very good, however i don't know how to except his kindness and i get mad at him often for no reason.Guess i don't know real love when i see it, i just pray my daughter will come to her senses,because she has a daughter that i pray will not follow in mine or her Mothers footsteps.It's a vicious cycle that has to be broken.

Comments:Thank you for sharing your story. I can not bring myselfl to address my past - can't think of it!! But I am confronting my current battle - 26 years of controlling abuse...that is, of course, "my fault" because I shouldn't be crying when my head is punch of my ribs or cracked or I am being threatened, etc. Please just pray for me...I feel so trapped...and hurt...I went from being tortured as a child to being physically abused from 15 years old. I guess I'm lucky because I had 2-3 relatively good years when I was not being hurt.

Comments:Abuse is no longer a taboo subject, society acknowledges it happens. But already the guilty are regrouping and putting up a defense. They claim that they are victims of false acquisitions and unscrupulous police tactics, "trawler methods" and that we (the victims) are part of the "compensation culture". They even try to claim that it is OK to abuse vulnerable children and that they are a victim of societies hang ups. And some people still want a legal right to beat children. Similar tactics have been used by Neo Nazis to suggest that the holocaust did not happen. However the clock can not be turned back, the human revolution is happening and society is changing from within, there’s no stopping us now, long live the revolution.

Its been many years but I am tired of bad relationships and being afraid of letting someone really love me. I've spent a lifetime of choosing men that were distance either physically or emotionally so I didn't have to connect.
It now time for me to move on and really let someone in and I appreciate you web site and my ability to say this to cry and to move on ...

So many say " we know what you must be going through" HOW could they know what i'm feeling, what my flash backs are like, my night mares. I just want to say hello, and feel free to drop me an email, for a chat or a sounding board. It would be good to have some on line support.

Comments:I found this site by accident, looking for answers to questions beginning to surface.i was sexually abused by three men in my childhood. Just left a relationship that i know recognise as abusive, physically( well you cant miss that)emotionally, mentally, socially, financially. Now i am working toward a profession to help others.
a Few weeks ago my daughter tells me her dad has been sexually assaulting her. i have spent every minute since she was born 'on the lookout', but never expected it from here. WHAT DID I DO WRONG NOT TO SEE IT. I SHOULD HAVE PROTECTED HER. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN.
Now i see clearly all the signs.I can't change what i missed but i can do something about the future...... she WILL be believed.......she WILL get help.....She WILL be acknowledged..........i WILL listen to her.....she WILL SURVIVE.....and WILL be there for my girl every step of the way.
Thank You for such a Wonderful site.xxxxx posm xxxxx

Comments:Not knowing why I was living in abusive marriage was baffeling, I was not raised like that. Now I his past my questions are getting answered. As I went through this marraige he wanted sexual things I would not allow to happen. He would tell me I did not love him if I would not allow him to do them and at various intervals would annally rape me. I am presently divorcing him. He was also into trashing our home and physically pushing me around, as I got my restraining order I found out he had a past police record of sexual abuse. I fell that this had to come from something he witnessed early in his life, to know him out in public he is a different guy than to know him in our private life.

Comments:I am 34 years old and just woke up one morning a few days ago and realized that what happened to me, starting at age 9, was wrong. I work in social work and have dealt with abused teenagers for 7 years! I thought because my situation was not as extreme, no violence or rape that it was okay. However, my uncle was always touching me, telling sexual jokes, coaxing me into doing things.. He convinced me that I wanted to do them and that "We" would get in trouble if anyone found out.
I have a daughter 15 months old and I told my husband several times that I don't want her ever left alone with my uncle. He kept asking why and I finally told him. He was shocked.
The kicker is that he is still in our family and lives. He takes us out to dinner every other Sunday, he gave us a new refridgerator and he paid for my last year of college! Maybe it is the guilt, I don't know. I really don't know where to go from here. Should I confront him? Tell my family? How to I make sure this does happen to my daughter?
Thanks
It's good for me to finally let out the dark cloud that has been in shadows.

Comments:I am currently doing research for a English paper in my college course I am currently taking. However when doing this research it is helping me to heal from the "events" that has happened to me when I was younger. I happened to come across this website when looking for sites for survivors. I really like how it is put together. Art therapy is one of the best things that helped me to over come those "events". From one survivor to another it is possible to live a "normal" life after the abuse accures.

Comments:I am 44,and have a whole whack of abuse experience behind me. I now know that this will always be with me 24/7 every minute of every day. I am able to manage, but sometimes I go crazy because I don't have repressed memories, I remember it seems every little thing since I was 4 years old. Too bad for me. I take life one day at a time. Sometimes one minute. I love life and everything around me and have found it in my heart to forgive. The only thing with forgiving is that it doesn't make anything go away. IT"S always always there, a deep secret that only I am a part of.

Life is easier since I've been with my man, it's a love thing you know. But I don't talk much about the past because it's horrid. Ahh to be like my sweetheart who has never known any kind of abuse in the world. But I'm not and I'm quite sure that if things didn't happen the way they happened I wouldn't understand the things I do.

Take care everyone, be strong and know that there is a guardian angel for every survivor. Love is the answer

Comments:I was wondering if I could join to get some support for my daughter ,26, who has just in the last month told that she was sexually abused by one of her aboriginal foster brothers from the age of 4 - 10.
Neither her father nor I were aware of this, and now I am feeling guilty , but that is not the problem. She is feeling extremely guilt, and showing the classic signs of childhood sexual abuse, of which I am now aware as a psychiatric nurse, but wasn't then when just a general nurse. We had six children while our four were growing up, at least two foster children in the family at most times. Her sister has confirmed that she was also abused, but is now married with children of her own and says she has dealth with it! Her father was in the Army and away a lot of the time, and I was working to help support the large family, thinking we were doing right by our kids.
I need a place that I can talk to get tips on how to help her through this healing she has yet to begin, and maybe a place to ease my guilty feelings as a mother for not protecting her and my other daughter enough!
Is this the place, please!

Comments:Bless your heart! You're site is obviously a labor of love. We need more caring people like you speaking out for us. You're an inspiration.

I used your description of DID to explain what it is to my adult kids and husband who are the joys of my life. I am truly blessed with a wonderful family. DID saved me and I know what would have happened otherwise. I have a sister who wasn't saved. I know so many don't have that now, but it is out there for you.

A word of advice, see a therapist who specializes in trauma. I see a wonderful lady who has been there with DID. She is an angel to me. I would have suffered for the rest of my life if I hadn't found her or she found me. It still isn't easy, but there is light at the end of the tunnel if you see a qualified person. The establishment doesn't always know the proper treatment.

Comments:The computer that I'm on wouldn't let me go anyplace but here. So I hope it's okay that I'm typing this here.
I'm 22 years old and I've been diagnosed with PTSD. I have tried meds and doctors and therapists to no avail. I was physically, sexually, and emotionally abused from the age of 10 to around 20. I find it so much easier to just give up. If anyone has any advice for me or anyone can help me I would appreciate it very much.
Thank you,
Allie

Comments:I have diagnosed PTSS from the years of every type of abuse as a child (that still blows me away I survived it and am even alive). I went to a Pyschologist who helped me and also informed me that this is a life long journey dealing with it as mine was Complex PSTD (continual even into adulthood). Know one tells you it is and was like a death of SELF and the stages are related: Denial, Anger, Depression, Guilt and Acceptance. And not in that order either. This does not even begin to deal with all the other issues like concentration problems due to flash backs while awake and the nightmares at night effecting our sleep. Nor the SHAME - the horror of it all. It is the shame that binds us. When you get to the other side (as I call it) it's like stepping outside of some chamber we were locked in for years, not knowing who we really are. Who would I of been if this had not happened to me? Am I really doing what I want in life? It's a noble quest which involves NOT having any contact with an unsupportive individuals,similiar types (that we do not seek out they seek out us as I was informed) and it has nothing to do with us. NOR any contact with the orginal abusers (or family relatives that think you are nuts or a liar). We were always fed lies.

The best I found (and now I am almost 54 yrs old) is to nourish yourself, hang with positive influences and be the parent you needed to yourself. I have also been married 22 yrs now to a nice man (second marriage) and it took me years to tell him what happened to me ( I think he was madder than me at the time). Shame thing again. I no longer have nightmares but at times I still have anger within. Which I journal, as my abusers are in and will always be in denial. Accept it if this is your case and choose to move on. I journal and it helps. I have a pity parties for a bit, once in awhile and I cry. I once beat up a pillow and told it off. It helped. I made the mistake of talking to my abusers after all this time - they have not changed and never will. In fact they are worse. They are mentally ill which helps me with Forgiveness, although I will NOT have anything more to do with them. I moved away and although I live with the pain and anger and horror of it all which if I continued to talk to these "sickos" I would become their victim again. The also anger arises out of NOT BEING BELIEVED and no one is or was listening. What I can recommend is taking our suffering and assisting humanity with it. Volunteer work is extremely rewarding, taking to a pyschologist who specializes in this helps. NOT a government or social program for this as they BLAME you for it which is NOT true. NO MORE LIES. It has been a long journey and it is a continual journey (which seems unfair at times), only I can tell you it does get better (but you HAVE to rid yourself of your family if they are the victimizers). Know that they will go to their graves in denial and/or insisting there is something wrong with you. Do not go there, please. ACCEPT they are not well and you are. You are not only a Survivor, but a Spiritual Warrior on a journey to find your wonderful self. When you do be sure to HUG yourself (and along the way)! Many blessing brave Warriors as I have complete faith your will get there! I love you all!

Comments:Mine is a long story.It wasn't until the "seizures" made me a safety liability at my job and none of the meds were working ,that I had to face what was really causing the seizures.For years I lived telling myself it didn't matter what happened to me as a child,I wasnt going to let it affect my life.Frequetly preaching the serenity prayer.I studied hard,had a family of my own (young I should add)worked hard and made a life -because this is something that can't just be fixed with meds I lost my job-but see it wasnt just a job it was everything i had worked for ,to prove it didn't matter-I could move on have a good life -so when that was gone I had no way to cope again I'm rambling but thank you for having this site

Comments:As i read through everyone's comments i almost go back to that part of my life i've tried so hard to forget. I've began to realize that I won't ever truly forget it. It's apart of me & my life now. The hard part seems to be that eventually i will one day have to truly forgive my offender. This will be the only way to be okay with myself & my surroundings. I am not here to judge this man i am here to show him the power of forgiveness. He will one day realize that i don't judge him for what he's done but feel sorry for what he will go through in another life. Maybe just maybe one day I will be able to look my grandfather in the eyes & understand why he chose me.

Comments:Please read the email I just sent. I am hurting. I am strong, but I am hurting badly too.

People who I thought would help or pray for me haven't even returned a call or email.

I don't think I can handle another rejection.

Comments: Except for one forum, I have not discovered a way to connect with any others who suffered or witnessed this kind of abuse--when a child is forced to strip to be spanked (the sexual impact has been discussed in books by therapists).
It happened regularly when I was in school, at home, and I witnessed a lot in the neighborhood, especially the raging drunk next door who beat his daughters.
I have a good therapist, but it will help to find someone who deals with the same feelings.
