21 Years Of Holding It In...

I was molested by my uncle starting at age 9 with a kiss.  A kiss that was supposed to be a lil peck until I felt his tongue touch my lips.  Then throughout my childhood and teen years, he molested me and told me if I told anyone that it would tear apart our family.  I was scared for so long and I still am scared to tell anyone, and I'm now 30 years old.  Why am I still so scared and ashamed?  It makes me feel so bad about myself.e to stop it.

Hang in there...add me so we can talk.

It's not your fault. Everything I have read shows it normally can take many years before the victim will come forward so don't blame yourself. <br />

Counselling might help to be able to better deal with this. There could be some place in your area or online. <br />

I'm sorry that you had to experience this. Your future can be so much better. <br />

The last part was supposed to read: I wish I could have stopped it. I guess it got cut off.
