    I just told my dad that he should step up

    and confront my grandmother for allowing my grandfather and my aunt to abuse me for as long as they did. I came out with this a few months ago and was asked to let it go. Why? Why do they want me to just let this go? I tried to get people to help me take action but no one will...

    Age 4 to 12 I was sexually abused by my brother

    who is 7 years older then me. There's two main factors as to what caused this. One, my family was in a strict Christian church. Two, we were being homeschooled. I'm 22 now and struggling to find answers. I would really like to talk to someone who has had a similar experience...

    My earliest memory was

    when I was three. My father locked me in a closet because he was drunk. I was scared and in there for a long time. Still to this day I don't know how long I was in there, but when I came out my father was cruel. He started hitting me and yelling at me. My mother wasn't home at...

    I was raped at age 8-10 by my cousin.

    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 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.

    I was mentally abused,

    not physically. My life is controlled and thanks to that problem, I can't fit in with society. I try to do "normal things" but I can't do it because I get this uncomfortable feeling. My religion made it worse and controls my life even more, but that doesn't count because it's...

    My Past

    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...

    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...

    This morning, I told my mother I want to sleep
