Never Leaves Me
My mother abused me. Almost every day. It was mostly verbal and what's weird for me is I've been out of denial for a long time but when my minister asked me if there was any physical I told him no but there was some. Not enough to leave bruises or blood. . . she was too smart for that. I've been through bring numb, depression, feeling suicidal while healing but even so I hate seeing my parents. I'm going there for Thanksgiving and dreading it; the thought of it makes me ill. I wouldn't go except I never get to see my brother and sister, who she didn't abuse, except once a year. I hate being 33 and still scared of my mother. . .it makes me feel weak and stupid. I'm happy to be in a group that understands what I feel and I'm looking forward to getting to know you.
