    But Then Again...

    Sometimes I do wish that , but then.. I know that if I hadn't been through all those awful experiences then I wouldn't have been able to relate so well to the pain of others who have had or are having similar or related experiences.. So I wouldn't have been able to do something...

    Someone Should Just Intervene..

    When people knowww already that there is something going on. I don't think I should've had to save myself, I don't think children should have to explicitly inform someone in authority, when others already know from seeing the obvious signs. Children feel too scared to tell...

    Let Down

    What hurts me so much is that I told people in the words of a child, what was going on, and no one did anything, or did not do enough to put a stop to it all.  Then I read my school reports not so long ago, and all the signs were there, how I'd become introvert, sullen...

    I know that person is supposed to be your parent, but sometimes they are the worst. I thought the Brady Bunch was mocking me and my pain. I was told that if God loved me he would save me instead of sitting up there laughing. I know that is not true of course but there is still a...

    I know I am still a kid but so much has gone on that it doesn't even matter. If someone saved me I feel that I would be different. Maybe all the things that happened, wouldn't. Maybe if it all just stopped right there. It all started with one little battery. My dad slipped on it...

    I wish someone would've stepped in.

    I wish my father had gotten arrested. I wish that I had been fed. I wish I had been strong enough to kill my step mother. Most of all I wish somebody had saved me. I was trapped and barely fed and now I have PTSD. It's hard to find a boyfriend willing to stay through flashbacks...

    If They Knew What They Did Because They Didn't Do Anything Would They Care?

    I just wanted to know I was worth the trouble to be saved. CPS treated it like a joke! The few times cps came to the house they would stand outside and talk to my abuser and take her word as gold every time. Only once did they talk to one of us kids. The report had been made for...
