I have a 3 inch thick scar on the right side of my neck. My dad slashed my neck after I disobeyed him. Thankfully he is now out of my life but the scar isn't. I have to look at it every day, which is a constant reminder of him and how he has ripped me and my family apart. People often ask me how I got it but I never say. Just thinking about him makes me sick.

I am so sorry , you have to be reminded this way ...I have a few scars myself of an abusive parent ...mostly on the inside ...and I must say ...its hard sometimes ...but we made it and that is the important thing ..we are here ...we survived ...*hugs Rose tightly* ..and everyday we will get a little stronger =-)

I am hoping he is not only out of your life but also serving time?
