I'm new and have no clue what all the drama is about. But, Its a shame this forum isn't used for what its intended for helping people heal from sexual abuse. This place has so much potential. A place just to help yourself heal from your battle scars from SA and a place to find others who share the same pain you do. Thank you for your help with my issue bluerose90, aenriquez25, marysings, tnmist, and slik_kitty. God Bless.View Thread
I am 26 now. I grew up very very sheltered. by the age of 18 I had was still a virgin and had never even made out with a boy. I had a cousin who was double my age 36. He was in the military and never in the usa. so we chatted on email and phone. I saw him like a big brother. He helped me with my homework and we talked about places he had seen. All conversations rated PG. One day he said he was gunna be close by a few towns over from me for business and I should come see him. He said the air force is having a formal party so bring a formal dress and then later we will have a movie marathon and watch all the movies your parents will not let you see. this sounded like fun so I went. He skipped the party and I don't think there ever was any movies. I ended up being SA for 2 days. It was aweful. This was the most scary thing I have every been threw. I felt scared and betrayed. then he left out of the usa again. I never told my family. I tried my best to pretend he didn't exist and nothing happened bc he was never here. But 3 years ago he moved back and I have to see him every Thanksgiving. I try to act normal in front of all my family so no one asks questions. but its hard. Im soooo scared of him and when Im there he taunts me on purpose I think he finds it amusing. Last year I sat next to my parents at the table thinking I would be safe and he sat next to me and licked his finger and stuck it in my ear. It took every oz of me not to freak out right then and there..... thanksgiving is coming up soon View Thread
sorry Its taken me a few days to reply. I don't have a computer of my own yet. Thank you everyone for your advise. I have been thinking of going to therapy. I have never tried it before. It is really nice to talk to people who can relate and who understand. My brother and his wife do know and they stick by me when we go to thanksgiving but there is only so much they can do. before my family starts asking questions. I think the one of the reasons I'm really so threatened is that he is a 4th degree black belt and teaches martial arts as well. I feel like If he really wanted to bring someone down he could with ease. No guy or guys could stand up agents him. He is a dangerous guy...I will defiantly have to check out that book everyone is recommending. Thank you everyone so much y'all really are making this time of year a little easier on me.View Thread
