That's Ok Sigma, I understand. You don't have to post an answer and any Poll selection you make is anonymous.

The poll sections allow others to see how wide spread the abuse is and it also allows other survivors to see that they aren't alone.

Take your time, no proessure to post or even do the poll.

Even now I am too scared to state who the other is - it is more than one person they are not on the list and they are not a stranger

I chose the 'other' option as well for my stepmother, she has been nothing more than a horribly angry woman who has made it her life mission to alienate our father from us..I included my father in this selection as well for his enabling and endorsement of her behavior.

step-father and then, in a way, my mother for being too emotionally weak to handle it and therefore neglecting me by staying married to him

I think the trouble with this type of poll, is that when abuse starts at a young age, if not discovered you immediately you become the target of other sick souls, it's like they know your damaged and will never tell. Then you become an adult and it still not addressed you open yourself up to abusive relationships, because that's all you have ever known.
