    Abused

    I was eight years old when my mother married him. My real father wasn't around. He had wanted my mother to abort me, but obviously, she didn't. They split up when she was pregnant of course. I was liking the idea that I would have a daddy around, until, it became something else...

    The Abuse I Went Through

    I was abused by a step-father from the age of seven to eleven. I was told everyday that if I told anyone that I would be killed. For five years I dealt with the physical abuse, mental torture and abuse. He would beat me and laugh at me. He found out I was afraid of mice and he...

    They Think I'm a Liar.

    The years I spent with my mom and my stepdad were so terrible. He hit me, kicked me, threw me against walls and pushed me over, pulled my hair, twisted my arm and often carried me by one arm whenever I refused to move. It was torture. The summer I was 6, when I was visiting my...

    I can feel the flashback coming... first it is his voice, shouting, calling my mother a *****. I feel the rage surging up in my mentally wrecked and wounded mind, retorting that my mother is not a *****, before I turn and flee into my room slamming my door. It opens, and I see...
