Product of Child Abuse

In the course of my adult life I am finding along with my sibling that our abusive childhood is greatly affecting our relationships with our spouses, my children- as she can't have any.......

Everyday when I wake up and look at the small faces of my 3 children I am reminded of the horrors I and my sister endured as children the horrors of being screamed at,hit,kicked, hair pulled, beaten with a wooden paddle, wooden spoon, belt,broken bones and being forced to feel only what was acceptable to my mother. Spare the rod and spoil the child was taken way out of context in our case. I to this day have been diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder and take large amounts of antidepressants. Suicidal thoughts haunt me- as i try to do better than the 3 generations that proceeded me. Desperation and lonelyness have set in deep.

We're sorry you feel so badly right now. It sounds as if you would benefit from talking to a caring person who is trained to help. We have three resources you could try. We hope you will contact one of them as soon as possible. You deserve to get help, and to get it sooner rather than later.

1. If you are in the U.S., call 1-800-SUICIDE any time, day or night. When you call this free number, you will be connected immediately to a caring, trained counselor in your region. The sooner you make this call, the better. (helplines worldwide)

2. If you can hold on for a few days, free anonymous crisis counseling is available by e-mail from an international charity called The Samaritans. Send an e-mail to and you will receive a caring response within 24 hours.

3. There is a website you may find helpful, called Suicide: Read This First.

You are in our prayers.

Dear Lord, the scars of abuse run deep and long as my scars and those of these good people testify before You. By Your grace, love and compassion, may you bless us with Your freedom from the awful weight of sorrow, grief and PTSS. Lord, I offer my humble prayer on behalf of these good people and all that have suffered these terrible things. Your mercy is our salvation. Amen.
