Nightmares

I was 6 years old the first time my uncle raped me. I didn't know what was going on at the time. Now im am 24 years old and still cant look him in the eyes he scares me to death, i still wake upo thinking he is going to come and hurt me. I was just a kid there was nothing i could do to stop him. I told my dad and he just called me a liar and went on letting my stay with this man, I finally broke down about the time i turned 16 and told my mom what was going on, Mom my saved my life she took me far from that man, My mother cried with me, it still don't help the nightmares but it has gotten better for me. I have a wonderful girlfriend who knows and she is helping me with the nightmares i am blessed to have her in my life, just wanted to post and get some of this feeling out
