{February 25, 2010}   Abuse

Abuse is abuse no matter the form.  Tickling can be a form of avuse if it is continued after being asked to stop.

I didn’t realize it at the time but I was abused by my former mother-in-law.  She had the nerve to tell me that it was my fault that her son got arrested for domestic violence.  He called the police on me for defending myself and was arrested instead because he had started the whole fiasco by spitting on me!!  I’m still trying to figure out why I stayed so long after that and of course how it was my fault.  If anyone out there can explain this too me, I’m all ears.  Or in this case eyes. =)

Nothing I ever did was good enough for my former mother-in-law.  She told me that I always said things that should not have been said and that I brought all of what happened to me on myself.  I know better now of course but being young and naive I didn’t understand what was happening to me.

I have always said, I stayed because the fear of leaving was greater than the fear of staying. I finally left when the fear of staying was greater than the fear of leaving.

Love Rebecca



I stayed for the children and the hope that it would get better. When I realized it wouldn’t I knew I had to get out and fast.
