    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...

    I was abused as a child.

    I've never talked about it. this is the most I've ever talked about it now but I've been holding it in for 15 years. I've been able to usually keep a hold on myself but I feel as tho lately I'm starting to unwind. I hurt and for some reason that is beyond me I cant get these...

    My experience of abuse is most likely not

    as bad as most people's but I'd still like to share.. The first time I was abused by my dad was when I came home late from a friends house. I was 12 years old at the time. I was dropped off 30 minutes late and my dad yelled at me for it. I tried to go and get my mom for...

    It's not actually my step dad,

    but I couldn't find the experince I was looking for. And I guess this holds a little bit of anonymity for those who know me on here. :) So yes I have, and still am being sexually harassed. It started off when I was too young to even realise that I was, because of my innocence...

    I was raped by the man I thought was my father

    for 17 years.... It turns out that he is not my father, but that doesn't make it any better. The worst part was when he told me he loved me while he was doing it. We go to trial in February

    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.
