Your mother sounds cruel and sadistic.
Not all mothers love their children, this is a myth also.
(Yes you're right) All parents don't do the best they can. That is a myth too.
Some parents commit crimes against their own children and get away with it.
Cass do you have any siblings that can help verify your version of things (this helped me)? Like you, I learnt very early on how completely unacceptable mentioning my parents abuse was. It is an insane situation, feeling the blame for someone else's abuse. I think your anger could be very healthy Cass. I hope you have support and no one trying to rush you through this. I'm pretty well completely over it - just to give you some hope. Janice
