  1. I totally do this too. Not all of the time, but a big part of it. I watch TV, movies and read books that I think will have it in it. That's how I found this site. I was looking for others stories.

    I think I do it partially because I want to play out some what ifs.

    Good thread!


  2. You are the best! Your words have brought tears to my eyes. I would just like to thank you for always making me feel welcome, for not talking down to me and reassuring me that I am okay (mentally and physically). Thank you for this post. Most importantly thank you for keeping it light and sharing your sense of humor with me (us).

    I hope you are taking care of yourself too.

    Aqua :flowers:

  3. I think it would be like the "ranting" one if his arm & hand were a little higher and he looked happy like he was cheering someone on. Or the "yahoo" one if his upper hand were going in circles.

    You know...Arsenio Hall used to do it. I think it was a 90s thing. LOL

    Yeah kind of like those ones Nicole.

  4. Welcome to the site Martika. I know this placed has helped me in so many more ways than I could have imagined. I hope you enjoy your time here. I really hope it continues to help. I know I was very suprised to see how many others there are here, it is a little sad. Talk to you soon. Take care.


  5. Hi Phoenix, welcome to AS. I don't do a lot of the welcomes because I find the amount of new members astonishing and horrifying. Please take your time when it comes to openning up. I know it can be hard but only do as much as you are comfortable with. I too hope you find what you are in need of here. Please take care of you.

  6. (((determined1))) I think you are right about this being a trigger for you. JustMom is reaching out and that is a start (however late it might be). She will make the right choice. I hope you can find peace with this whole thing.

    JustMom...I hope you can find peace too. Now is the time to start healing for the entire family.

  7. JustMom...

    This is just my opinion here...If this were happening in my house, my husband would be gone. I know it is easy to say but that's why this is your problem. You are an adult and at times will need to make hard decisions. This is your daughter's step-father. She needs to come first. Asking her what she things was probably not in her best interest. She was 13 and do you really think she has the knowledge to make these desicions? You need to be the best parent you can be for your daughter and son. This could be an isolated incident but it still happened and it will affect her for the rest of her life.

    If a situation ever presented itself for this to happen again, would the thought ever cross your mind? Is he capabable of doing it again? Yes, he did it once. Would you worry about him touching your grand-children?

    I do wish you the best. Being a parent doesn't mean making only the easy dicisions. I have 5 children but I am prepared to put each one of them first. I hope I have not offended you in anyway. I would strongly encourage you to read some of the survivors stories. There are varying degrees of abuse here, but it is still abuse. Please take care of yourself and your family.

    The reality is you are living the worst case scenario.

    Determined1: Children should be protected more than you would protect yourself.

  8. Welcome to AS. I haven't been here that long but already I have learned a lot. I just keep asking questions and these people somehow know what I'm saying even if I don't know how to ask it. I wish you the best. Take care and be patient.
