Yesterday After Being Told By My Caranua Advisor (3rd Call Ever With Them) That Caranua Has Refused My Request For Assistance With Essential Repairs To My House In Ireland Because I Reside In England Having Fled To Here After 18 Years Of Suffering The Effects Of Abduction, Imprisonment, Sex Abuse, Assaults, Denied Adoption (Not Even A Foster Home), Torture And Being Drugged By A Scientist Etc. I Was Browsing Online Reviewing The History Of The State Child Abuse Inquiry, So…

Hi Jack, hope you are keeping well, is that you in your profile photo?, The two photos of the irish dancers one was taken in Goldenbridge ,I believe the other with all the troup in was taken in Carrickfergus, I do remember the names and Hope some of them might see the photo and be delighted to see a picture of themselves , although I think some of them might be dead by now , I had that photo blown up you can see the horrible black and blue marks on us from being beaten to get the dance right , we were like zombies with fear. The Nun's kept all the medels.

hello!  yes that is me in the profile photo! if i recall right i was trying to see which side you were on?!  usually in photos when there are captions people mention names from left to right but who's left and who's right?! are you the tall girl on my right?  i would like to encourage people to join this site and to take part in a way that makes them feel better!  yesterday i walked into a restaurant i have visited before and as i walked in i barely noticed a name plague outside the door! name of the proprietor. the christian name was familar. surname Nunn!  i told  the waitress who served me about the name i saw on the door outside and that in my opinion in no way is the manager of the restaurant a nun!  the waitress told me that her surname was also Nunn!  she agreed with me that she is not at all religious!

We as survivors were abused by sadistic Savages as young children the result of that is many survivors suffer depression in adulthood CAUSED by the Abuse we were forced to suffer  at the cruel hands of the  so called Religious Orders and the Irish Government  ,they made sure we  Really suffered  as children, How any of us survived into adulthood is a Miracle.

yes indeed. i agree. infact i suggest most if not all cases of depression are child abuse related. the victims can be detained and drugged and silenced. strangers write reports about them that they never see. how convenient! the word survivor does not automatically conjour up happy or thriving or healthy or fullfilled or joy. is it really enough to have survived childhood abuse?  what for?  so that children who became lawyers or journalists or politicians can think it ok to keep the child abuse (adults) down?  no bloody way!  the abuse commission experience for me was abuse. yes abuse. the government appointed lawyer was not qualified to question me and i had been misled all along as to what i could expect from the abuse commission which was really only set up to report it's findings for the government of the day who had already decided what's what without first seeing the bloody report?  there must be alot of child abuse victims (adults) who have not yet settled their cases because of the government of the day.

I am interested in finding out more about the poor treatment of children by institutions charged with their safety.

My father, who is now dead, went to Christian Brothers school. He always talked about the "iron discipline". I think he really meant abuse.

The sad thing is that he ended up in prison for abusing my sister. I have always wondered if he was abused as a child and he just carried on what happened to him.
