Jump to new posts Re: Disassociated memories... by Nothing Man @ 12/18/14 03:45 PM

What I do not understand is WHY my mother did the things to me she did. Was there a sign on my head saying, "Abuse me"? The only real memories I have of my mother is her sexually abusing me -- touching and feeling -- and hitting me. She
