Blame Your Abusers, Its Okay

I will give my family credit for causing me my illness. Parents can mess up children.  That is why there are protective agencies for children in the world.  Good parenting is not common nor is it easy.  The modern medical establishment likes to take the blame away from families for causing illnesses, but they are wrong.  I knew on my first visit to a psychologist in second grade that the playboy magazines were distracting me, but I did not say as I was ashamed.  Cause and effect.  If one does not care for children correctly they have problems.  I did pass my algeba regents with a one hundred percent, so the sexing up of my eight year old mind did not have a lasting effect.

I don't know If I am dialoguing with several commenters or just one, some say I am this some say I am that.  I am who I am and I will relate my story.  Blaming is a good thing in the case of child abuse.

  1. My Parents Being Blamed for My Bipolar Disorder

    Parents, unfairly, get blamed for their children's mental illness. Read about what we can do about parental blame in mental illness.Look, I’ll level with you, I’ve had issues with my mother – oodles of them. At one point in my life, I wish she would have disappeared altogether. (Things have drastically changed now.) And my father was an alcoholic with bipolar as well so things weren’t exactly smooth sailing there either. But did either of them cause my bipolar disorder? Not a chance.

    I will admit that having gone through certain traumatic events in my earlier life likely both increased my chances of mental illness and likely brought it on sooner. But, I also know that I exhibited signs of bipolar disorder long before those traumas occurred. Even when I was a small child I remember moods indicative of bipolar disorder. My mother remembers them as well.

    So while my upbringing wasn’t perfect (no one’s is), I would never blame it for my bipolar disorder. Not ever.

  2. Kudos to you. I was initially slipped an hallucinogen. I applaud you for your views, but in my story it is different.

    1. I, as one of your followers will never believe your parents did anything to you, whether it be a beating or as you say, you were slipped something?? You mention a sister? Does she exhibit being abused by her parents? Are you the youngest? You mention your father was a Dr.- did he or did he not see that you were well cared for as a child growing up? It sounds to me that you were closest to your Dad.

    2. I am not going into the details of the sex abuse in my family. If giving an eight year old porn to read does not bother you, I cannot reach you with my story.

  3. After a family party in 2001 a holy card of the virgin mary glowed and shimmered with the glowing going up my arm. I initially felt weird at the party. I contend that I was slipped something by my family.
