I just read your story The Second Punishment.
Julianna Miller

God Julianna, I am just so so sorry that your family were SO SHIT and didn’t protect you as a child, and that they don’t support you now. I believe you. I believe everything you have said. I’m actually glad for you that you don’t have much to do with them now as they sound so toxic, so ready to negate your horrific experiences — which is to say that they are negating YOU. Being dehumanised in this way can be worse than the initial abuse in some cases. What a strong and brave person you are.
