This page is only for those whose early experiences were less than ideal and those who are interested in helping young people who may be living under oppressive conditions in our society.
I am a 65 year old Ph.D diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome, which is a neurological difference, and with complex PTSD, which is from brutality experienced throughout my childhood. This may not appeal to many but for those in the same situation, I am providing a means of expressing the effects of injustice and finding a sympathetic forum to relieve the stress and pain.
I have come through my early life and lived with the resulting problems. Others may like to share their experiences and perhaps gain some comfort from knowing that they are not alone and that they can have a sympathetic hearing here.
I know that there are those who will take this as weakness and express their views accordingly. I am not afraid of words of this nature that may be posted and neither should anyone else but be assured that anything of an insulting nature that is received here will not be published.
Child beaters often experienced the same treatment when they were young and perpetuate it. Their rationale is often that it makes the child stronger. We must show the perpetrators that it does not make a child stronger. It is merely self-indulgence of anger and causes many lifelong problems.
This whole issue needs to be aired to show the amount of cruelty in our society. Share your experiences and do not be afraid.
