Biography

Australian victim of child abuse. She was age two when her brother was born and for the next three years she lived in the kitchen cupboard whenever her mom wanted a break, which soon became most of the day. She remained there when her mom went shopping or visiting friends. The cupboard could not be opened from the inside. Occasionally, her brother shared the space but that was rare; it was a lonely, cold, dark place.

Amy's parents continually ran her down, abusing her emotionally and physically. Neighbors were aware that she was being abused but did not "interfere." She lived an existence of destitution, alienation and isolation. Her younger brother became a tormentor as they grew up. He beat her, sexually molested her and tortured her. On one occasion he tied her hands behind her back and threw the rope over a top bar, pulling her up and dropping her down until she passed out. Her dad arrived and swore at the kids as they rushed her to the hospital. She had facial scars and a dislocated shoulder.

As her brother reached puberty, his sexual assaults became more frequent and violent; he "owned" her, and her sense of self-worth was endlessly battered. She had so little self esteem that she could not run away.

Amy eventually escaped with a "nice" man, who seemed to care for her. His girlfriend soon moved in with them and when Amy had a baby, they threw her out and kept the child. When she fought to keep her daughter, her brother joined in the fray, grabbing her by the hair, and they took her screaming to the local psychiatric hospital. She was by then completely irrational, psychotic and destitute, an empty shell.

During treatment, further horrors were revealed. She was sexually assaulted by other patients and staff at the hospital. While still living at home, she had been prostituted by her brother for his friends. Amy was afraid of the dark, of going outside, of enclosed places, of being stared at, being seen by the television; the damage to her psyche was inestimable.

She met a man, a Vietnam vet who was as psychically wounded as she, consumed by the pain of experience and existence. They moved in together; though they hardly spoke, they turned to each other in mute anguish. Amy screamed and cried every day. She began therapy in a psychiatric hospital, though her brother created obstacles to her continued treatment. At the time of the article, she is getting intermittent treatment for her psychosis.
