    I wasn't allowed to eat with the rest of my

    family, growing up. I had no one to talk to and no one to teach me how to act. They always told me that I wasn't good enough. I believed that too. I still find myself telling me that I can't do it. They did many things to put me in danger. I was called by a lot of names, and...

    At age 13 I was raped by my boyfriend. I love sex though. Is that weird? After I was raped I loved having sex. At age 15 I gave consent to a 40 year old man to have sex with me because I liked feeling dominated... It scares me... I liked the feeling of him being older and having...

    My dad is more than likely a psychopath.

    He takes delight in physically, verbally, and emotionally abusing others. He especially liked hurting his kids. He loved to beat us with his belt. After one of us did the slightest thing wrong he would stand up with the meanest grin on his face, flick open the belt and with...

    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...

    When I was young, from the age of about 6, my grandfather (on my mum's side) sexually abused me. At the beginning I didn't really know what was going on and I was told that if I spoke out my nan, who I loved dearly would die. I rather naively placed my trust in my grandfather...
