    When I was 4 he brought home a little orange

    kitten. It was very cute and my sister and I played with her for a bit. A couple hours later he couldn't find the kitten and was convinced I let her outside and that she was gone. I promised I didn't but it didn't matter. I was helping look for her in the bathroom when he...

    Tonight I'm having random body aches.

    Lower back especially. I've read somewhere this isn't unusual for survivors of child abuse. Phantom pains plaguing me. This is new. The pain is. I'm not sure if it's because I just turned 43, or if it's because new things have been surfacing. Deep down I feel like this pain is...

    it's bits and pieces for the most part. Some things that will always stick out is his face contorted with rage. The way he would sit on me and pin me to the floor, poking me in the chest over and over, laughing at me. The way he would try to trick me into revealing something I...

    They Say It's Strength...

    When you pluck up the guts to finally tell your family that someone they, and yourself, trusted has been making you do things you didn't understand for 4 years... I call it fear and confusion. When things get so bad that the fear of them taking everything overwrites the fear of...

    my dad always was an angry person.

    I think it's because we grew up in a country far away from his side of the family. him yelling at me wasn't anything I couldn't handle but in my teenage years he became physical. holding me in choke-holds and throwing me to the floor. I would lock myself in the bathroom to hide...

    While I was growing up I was abused daily by my

    oldest brother. He would beat me repeatedly. He blacked my eye on more than one occasion. There was nothing I could do about it. My mother even allowed him to do it, even encouraged it. He would lift me off of my feet up against walls and choke me while I couldn't breathe. I...
