    I never really liked my stepfather ,but when my mom got married I guess I accepted him because I thought mom was happy. This man took advantage of my youth and innocence when I was 7 . My report cards have been poor and I was worried how mom would scream at me and spank me so he...

    My Past

    My own brother. 6 years older

    than me. From the time i was 11 till i was 14. He told me it was all about trusting him. If i felt "comfortable" with him. To this day i have not told a single soul. Who wants to be with a girl who has been sexually abuse thats nasty on top of complicated.

    Put The Wall Back Up!!

    When I was 12, my mother's brother touched my breasts, reaching into my shirt. I was traumatized and scared, but I didn't tell my mother until years after he died of cancer. He was her brother; in my child's mind, it would be wrong to say such things about her own family. I put...
