Hi Madeline,

I too lived in a very violent home growing up. I didn't have to imagine what would happen if my mother knocked down my door, because she did with a baseball bat and I know what happens next because I lived it weekly. In fact I think I could very easily of died of child abuse if I wasn't strong enough, but I did survive. I was lucky, my life is pretty good, but it is even better due to the work I have done in therapy.

I don't know if you are familar with EMDR, but it changed my life. My story is in archives at Babble starting I think in March of last year. A lot of older babblers can tell you of the abuse I endured, and how my T helped me.
My abuse is my past, I am making my life mean something to me now. The past abuse is no longer defining who I am. I was beaten, burned, tortured, emotionally abused, almost drowned, and my brother has permenant brain damage from what my mother had done to him. But you can move past it, but it takes a lot of work and I think with a good experienced T who specializes in trama therapy. I highly recommend EMDR.
