I still carry scars of an abusive, miserable childhood. My father only needed to look at me and I instantly wet myself. I was skin and bone because instant diarrhoea was normal until I was 19 years... More > old, when I left home to get married.
After making a mess of my first marriage I reverted back to my upbringing and ended up in a second marriage which was very violent. I was ‘used’ and ‘abused’ and like the idiot I was I allowed it to go on.
I do have something positive from my life with my father. I thank him for instilling into me, my determination NEVER TO BE LIKE HIM.
