I Still Struggle
My first real memory was at age 4 being beaten due to a scratch in her new table, but the cigarette burn scars and hot coffee burn scars tell of earlier abuse at the hands of my mother. Then she remarried and the sex abuse started by both my mother and step-father. My step-father would sexually abuse me on his own and then with my mother. I was forced to watch them having sex then they would place me in their bed. My mother also prostituted me to other men for drugs, alcohol and money.
I left home at the age of 16 after my mother beat me so bad that I ended up in the hospital. I go out but still struggle with nightmares and horrible memories.
