    This Is Difficult.

    But that's why this site is here, right? When I was 8-9 years old, I was verbally, violently, and sexually abused by my older sister who was 15-16. The first time she molested me was in her bedroom closet which would later be my own bedroom closet. It happened quite a few...

    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...

    My memories are not intact,

    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...

    Sometimes we have to be our own mother.

    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...

    I wasn't beaten or sexually touched,

    but my father's wife used her words to hurt me and made it clear numerous times that if I was on fire she wouldn't even spit on me to put it out. My dads still with her and in order to have a relationship with him I still have to endure her abuse.

    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...

    My mom used to drink a lot,

    so she would always come home drunk and beat me and my brothers and sister. She would say we're useless kids. This contributes to my depression and self-hatred. This all was when I was 10 I think.
