I was naturally very good at most sports, therefore my class mates always wanted me in their team. I learnt to strum a guitar which also helped in my teens. But inside I felt so isolated, I was different from the others . I had done something so wicked that I deserved a dreadful punishment. I tried to be good and work hard in order to avoid any punishment. I could not bear being given a bad conduct mark at school as it only served to confirm how dreadful I was. I also tried to work hard because I thought that by getting high marks my mother would love me because she was always delighted when Frank did well academically.

It meant that she either had to cancel a meeting to stay with me or pay for a baby-sitter . I tried very hard not to have days off school so that when I had flu I would sit sweating and nearly fainting in the classroom and shivering uncontrollably in the playground at break-time. When I did have to have days away from school I had to stay in bed and sleep or read all day. When the baby-sitter was used I would hear my mother come back home after a meeting . I would cry out to her. I just wanted to see her yet she would not come upstairs.

She would be frightened for us. She had a terrible time, stuck in the middle. Mother stayed with our father because she loved him. She did leave him once but not for long. I feel there is nothing lovable about him. In some ways I'm angry with my mother for staying while knowing what he did to us. Pauline and I often wondered how we did not end up in an asylum, having to live with all that fear and violence and the constant threat of sexual abuse . My main feeling was to try to make it easier for everyone else.
