First, a few days ago my daughter randomly said "(monster boy) tried to suicide me." I asked her what she said and she repeated it. I asked her if she knew what that word meant? No. So I explained that suicide is when you try to kill yourself. "Yeah, mom, (monster boy) tried to suicide me!" I explained that if someone else is doing the killing, you can use the word kill or the legal term is murder. She insisted "her tried to suicide me."
A few days later, she better explained. Well, we now know how my daughter got the scars on her back! She shared that monster boy used to use scissors or a knife to stab her. When?

That specific action was completely separate from sexual abuse...at least sometimes...but the fact that he'd do it in every day, normal life shows that this kid has some MAJOR mental problems! MY poor, precious, traumatized, little girl.

He admitted it. We both felt much more relaxed after we knew he was in jail.. The next morning his mother and brother bailed him out of jail, knowing that he had done it. He's...
I just discovered this song; it's about recovery from alcoholism but the chorus is so true to our situations: "It gets easier but it never gets easy. I could say it's all worth it but you'd never believe me." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CagbTwPxXw&feature=youtu.be
