"Why can't you forget like the rest of us?"
"Michelle, none of what you say ever happened...Honey, stop spreading lies."
"You are mentally ill. That is the only reasonable explanation as to why all these decades you insist you were tortured and abused. We are a good upstanding family. We have prestigue, reputations and responsibility in this town. Every time you come [here/home] to visit, you under mind that just by being here -just by being YOU!"
"You have no proof that anything you say is true." -Family Member who closed down the office of my ob/gyn from the time I was eleven to about twenty-six years old and kept my records from being released.
WELL DO I HAVE NEWS!!!
I now have verification!
"BONES NEVER LIE" - Temperance "Bones" Brennan (by Kathy Reichs)
Well, after more than twenty years of trying to get my ob/gyn medical records that contained indications that would validate my child abuse, a recent trip to the chiropractor managed to reveal through X-ray the indications recorded upon my bones.
I always said my health will not let me forget my childhood, which is true of just about every victim and survivor that I know no matter their age. And when requested to make my life into a movie, one of my excuses to hold up the process was for medical knowledge of the damage done to my body as a result of the abuses and tortures. I have the start of gathering this knowledge now. It has only been a week of having the results. I am still processing that I even have them. I haven't really studied them any more than when I was at the chiropractor's office. I will as I have the nerve. In the meantime, I am celebrating and basking in the validation.
