Krayoss,

This is the kind of thing we need to credit ourselves for a lot more than we do. We all have choices. The abusers did, and we have choices now. I keep seeing time after time after time how survivors make the compassionate and decent choices, even with the ones who tormented and hurt them. Good for you.

Much love,
Larry

Xavier,

A fucking bicycle chain. Man does that push my hot buttons! We're not supposed to threaten harm on the discussion board, but perhaps the mods would allow me to ponder, for a moment, the sweet image of this guy meeting an adult armed with a similar bicycle chain.

Much satisfaction,
Larry

My avatar picture is my younger brother, who did not survive life in our family to grow up at all. And like Stefan, my father 'told them what happened' to cause his death.

To much bad thoughts and memories.

Xavier,

I am right with Larry on this one. I remember how horrified I was when I learned that one of my mom's special-ed students had been thrown against the wall whilst an infant. This bicycle chain shit ranks right up there, and so do the knives. I'm just glad you're still alive. I've always wondered how someone could do these horrific things to children. I've always thought of children as precious. For someone to do that is a crime of the darkest kind, and a horror.

I'm so glad you're here, Xavier. You truly do know what it means to be a survivor.

Hugs,
Joe

Larry, I remember so much about feeling so small and vulnerable as a kid.
I certainly got more than my fair share of beatings, mainly at school for being late, and 'daydreaming'!

Such luxury was not available to me, so I got whacked,
