Your experience of him choosing either you or your sister and the details in telling your dream opened your horror to me.
Yes, your picture as at eight year of age looks sad. You look disconnected. Your barriers were up.

Dearest, lovely Cat...I've never given anyone six stars for ripping my heart out and reaching with trembling, vaporous fingers that cannot be grasped and pulled into a hug of healing and compassion...my soul now screams to deliver to you! The power of your writing is volcanic and the scope of your emotional journey as a tender child is beyond comprehension. All I can offer is GENUINE GRATITUDE that God has molded you into such a splendid and gracious creature in spite of all this! Also, that you have obviously willed to share this with others in hopes that even one who knows of this might find a way to help someone now sharing these horrible nightmares! God bless you dear one!

Superb work with this. Too many can relate to the sad story you tell, I certainly can. I was chastised last year for posting that I didn't celebrate Father's Day because my father was abusive, saying Father's Day was a day of celebration, and my comments were offensive to the good fathers. I found nothing offensive about this post and applaud you for your honestly and bravery for posting it. Excellent work with this one.

    Chastised? What? Are you five? lol
    Seriously? I haven't 'celebrated' Father's Day, ever. Except for my husband and the amazing father he is, I would never give it another thought. I can't believe anyone would even begin to tell someone else how to feel about anything... here or anywhere else. It is your right, indeed, your privilege to feel any way that you feel.
    When I posted this... (honestly) I forgot it was even Father's Day... so intent was I on posting it... and so 'past' the whole "Daddy" thing, that I truly just sort of phased out on the entire day, except for my husband. lol
    So yeah... it wasn't really an act of bravery, more like a moment of... huh? WTF? LOL
    Thanks so much for your kind words and very supportive post and review. I appreciate that you support my right to speak my heart and I too, would support yours and anyone else's as well.

    Thank you,
    Cat

I am sorry you had to live through his abuse, both while you were awake, and through the nightmares he caused while you slept. Your story is well organized and easy to follow as you went from your story to your nightmare, then back. It is very confusing when you see such talent, and beautiful peace coming from the same person who inflicted so much pain, and fear and unrest. I am glad you are free of the nightmares, I hope soon you can be free of the hold he had on your heart and mind... Thank you for sharing...
Hugs Cat...

    Echo,
    Thanks so much echo... I hope that this hasn't caused you, or anyone else any pain.
    And... I can assure you... this story was amended in a few places, but was written more than ten years ago.
    Before the really BAD stuff happened, even. Before the two months in the eating disorder hospital and before the psych ward. Before the bipolar disorder diagnosis... Before the shit hit the fan. So yeah... I"m WAY past all this.
    lol

Thank you for sharing this. I was the same little girl, only it was my older half-brother. I also had the reoccurring dream of snakes for many years. I'm so sorry for what you went through. No child should ever have to go through that. I have written quite a bit about my abuse too. It has been another form of healing and hope to help others with it.

    MelB,
    Snakes are a symbol of sexual, or phallic symbols in dreams. Also, it's a true fear. Two years ago in my back yard, for the FIRST ever, I came across a snake. A real live snake. I FREAKED! I mean. Freaked. I don't freak about anything. Seriously. I don't get upset about tornadoes, earthquakes, hardly anything. It was really odd. I've not really experienced that sort of fear from an animal. I didn't care for it at all.
    lol I was ready to sell and torch my brand new house and both acres! LOL
    Thanks so much and I truly hope for your own healing as well my dear.
    Cat

    I didn't realize snakes meant sexual in dreams. I just figured it represented evil. Once I went through counseling, they stopped. I'm not real fond of them either, but can tolerate them near me, just not on me. Hope you didn't have to go to that extreme, of torching your place. haha I'm so glad you have been able to heal too.

Hi Cat - not just a very well told story but the ability to tell it truthfully is to be applauded. When I see the warning sign at the beginning of a poem or story I think do I really want to read this, but in your case I am glad I did. There was no descriptive violence just a deal of sadness. So sad, that this happens in a family - or anywhere for that matter. Thank you for having the courage to write this and I'm glad the nightmares have stopped. Warm regards Dorothy x

this is an excellent write, I am cat, you opened yourself up and shared what happened to you. I pray that your openness will draw others to tell their story and help someone break away from their abuse.

Abuse is not something any child should have to ever endure. And, the monsters who inflict those abuses just seem to not be able to understand why, even 20 years later, the abused wants nothing to do with them. Well written story many of us have been through in one form or another.

    Yes, that's so true... 'there's a broken thread in all of us'. So true.

This is a sad story and my heart goes out to you my friend. I was like you, always wanted to please my father. I wasn't sexually abused though, just mentally. Thank you for sharing. Take care.

There is never anything humorous about abuse. I am sorry for your experiences, laud you for sharing that others might find courage and strength.
