Mimilly - first welcomne to the board.
Your story is tragic. Despite going through my own horror story it always saddens me when I read of another person's life who has been turned upside down and inside out by abuse.
I learned there is strength inside that kept us going. I thought I was weak but let's face it - it takes strength to endure that kind of torture on a daily basis.
That the borg forces people to stay in these familes just proves their blindness to dyfunction and abuse. Most abusers whether they are an individual or group cannot see the horrific damage abuse does to the victims.
You survived. I'm sure some days life is still a struggle. Don't ever give up. Life is most definitely worth it.
So are you.
