From My Mother

Worst thing she ever said to me was after I was raped. When I told my family and she said one sentence to me that was the worst thing i've heard in my life. "This better not affect your marks." Then she proceeds by walking up to her room. The sad thing was that it didn't. I didn't think about it. Now it's affecting me. Sometimes I think that what she said was worse than getting raped. I still love her though..

I'm so sorry, about both your assault, and your mother's comment. I know that when horrible things happen, sometimes people go into shock and their brains zone out. That's the only possible reason I can imagine that a person would say such a foolish, hurtful thing to someone she presumeably loves.

OMG!<br />

I know what you mean....I told my mother that I cut myself and need help..<br />
She told me to not tell anybody or it would ruin my rep.<br />
People just suck sometimes...<br />
<br />
I'm sure it'll make you a better person....

You will become a better mother than her, I am sure.

That's cold. I'm sorry people suck.<br />

Remember how it feels and try not to be like that to others,<br />
unless it happens so often you just can't help it.
