My mother was a self centered *&#$@** she allowed me to be sexually and emotionally abused from the time i was 2 (as far back as i can remember, could have been longer) I think she did it for her own cause. (she sold me to get what she wanted) I too went through a few abusive relationships as i got older. i ended up with three children. I raised them alone. I still cry when i think of all the years we went without electricity, heat and food. but i got them all to university :) through all of this i met my best friend, soul mate, partner in crime :) he died in October. now i feel so very lost again. i feel so very broken. i find myself wanting to just go too. rationally i get this isnt right but i dont believe in god and i dont know what else to feel or do

Lost my Son -only child in March of this year

Hello -My name is Karen.  I lost my only son at 22 years of age in a car accident in March of this year.

I have surrounded my self with a support group and a Psychotherapist.  I have also started to explore my Spirituality and looking for unanswered to questions to my existence and purpose.  I welcome anyone that would like to share their experience…See More

"Theresa, it's horrible that someone would say, "It's not the end of the world" to you. That is cold. I am so sorry. Your mother in law... again, I am so sorry. You deserve better than that. We all do."

"I hate to use the word resentment because I have enough on my plate right now. It takes energy to resent people. Negative energy. There is already too much of that in my life. The really hard part is that I got so much unconditional love from my…"
