    Gradual Unravelling Of The Truth.

    I had the fantasy of a normal childhood. I wouldn't go so far as to say happy, I never fit in at school, had trouble socially, felt different, like other kids didn't like me. I had a very high IQ and was an early reader, academically gifted, however I never topped the year at...

    Emotional Abuse Can Leave Scars Too

    My mother never hit me, I think she knew I would hit her back. When I was born I had black hair and very blue eyes. Two days later when they were going to let us go home the nurse ran into the room and told my mother that my hair was now red. (it runs in the family) My mum asked...

    It just stuns me that the person

    who birth you, who gave you life, who was the one person to have your back and love you unconditionally is the person I fear most. She said it was our special kind of love and that this is love and I believed her. It makes me sick to think that's who I came from that's my mother...

    When I was a little boy my mother took all her

    problems out on me. She blamed me for her "stress" and when other things were going bad she'd find something to get mad at me about. She yelled at me and heaped verbal abuse on me and made me cry. She would only occasionally hit me. Mostly slaps and shoves, a few times she...

    I Didn't Know I Was Abused By Someone I Loved The Most.

    The person who I loved more than anybody in my life was my mother (until my own child was born). What I went through as a child never appeared to me as something abnormal. Only 6 years after her death I started realizing how severely I was abused (verbally and emotionally) by my...

    It;s Too Complicated...

    She's been dead ten years...I am past 60...but her legacy of hate haunts me daily. It is so complicated, her web of deceit and lies, that it defies telling. She kidnapped my children, took them to another state, lied to the courts and the rest of the family, and adopted them out...

    I grew up thinking that I wasn't good enough or worthy of a good family or true friends. I was alone, lonely, and self hatred had gotten to me. I need to be nurtured, cared for and listen too. I just never wanted to be accepting of that when I was young and in to my later teen...

    For years, I have been abused by my mother. I never realized it was abnormal. I thought it was my fault. She always said if it wasn't for me she wouldn't be unhappy. If it wasn't for me she could escape from my father, her cheating husband. I have 2 other sisters but I guess...
