I was spanked until I was 16
My mom and step dad spanked me bare ass. with giant glue sticks, broke wooden spoons on me. when i got older they would let me keep my undies on. one time, my father beat me with a belt so many times I lost consciousness. i lost count at 14 and the rest I blacked out. they love jesus. i tried to kill myself. there was much more abuse, mental, emotional, and sexual harrassment.
i am happy and healthy now, at 25, and successful. I am now working on not being afraid to share my story or protect my abusers anymore. I am so thankful i survived.
