Starting when I was 9 and a half years old My step father for almost 6 years began sexually abusing me. I was so young I couldn't completely tell what was going on, all that i could tell was that it was wrong. He had me 100% scared to death. Ever since i was little i have had abandonment issues caused by my biological father. My Step father preyed on this vulnerable emotions and had me convinced that if i made one wrong move my mom, my only parent I could truly rely on, would do nothing and let things continue to go on. In November 2011, I finally disclosed to my mom about the doings of my step father. And my mom called the police right away. I am now going through trial for his convection and at age 14, what i went through still haunts me. I have vivid nightmares, privacy issues and my skin crawls and my heart races at any sudden moments or noises. I am in therapy and have been to a mental hospital once. I'm still hurting because of what he did, but i'm getting better. Day by day.
