I’m just curious… Wanting to know if I was mentally abused as a child or is it just me over reacting.. As far back as I remember, is that my mother and father always argued about money every time my dad was home from work. I would wake up… In the middle of the night, listening to my mother screaming at my father… I crept out of bed and watched them screaming and fighting. I witnessed my mother on many occasions slagging into my dad’s eyes and face while giving him the finger, telling him to sit on this and rotate china. And then dad would smack her in the mouth…pull her hair and give her a bloody mouth or blood nose, while I’m standing in the door way crying and screaming… Please daddy don’t hurt mummy.
There behaviour for all them years has really affected my life and as far back as I can remember, my father has always told me that he is riddled with cancer.
I am over 40 years old now and he to this day now he is still telling me that he is dying or cancer.
Apparently, according to him, he has bowel cancer, prostrate cancer, emphysema, lung cancer, tumor on the brain., arthritis, deaf in both ears… Apparently he has had three massive heart attacks one after the other, according to him.
I’ve put up with all his lies that I actually believed years ago that he was telling the truth..
But at 30 years old I finally realised that he has been lying to me the whole time. I don’t go and visit him no more because I don’t know what to believe about him anymore.
Because I don’t give him sympathy anymore… I found out by my adult daughters that he has been messaging them, asking my daughters, “What’s wrong with your mother??”
“I’m dying of cancer,” or “I’m going in for surgery…No one comes to visit me in hospital,” or “I’ve been in bed crook for a month and no-one has rang me.” And then has the cheek to tell my daughters… “Your mother doesn’t visit me no more, what’s her problem? I’m dying…your mother is waiting for me to die, so she can be a vulture like the rest of them vampires waiting for me to die so they can swarm on my belongings.”
My mother has 5 children, 8 grandchildren and one great son from my daughter. My mother visits her other 4 children and 4 grandchildren, but doesn’t talk to me or visit my 4 children and grandson.
Honestly, I believe that my parents have mentally abused me, and now they’re trying on my children… What do you think? Do you think I’ve been abused?? Or am I over reacting.??
