Child Abuse - A Family That Refuses to See the Truth
by Teresa K
Why do other family members not want to admit what happened? Why do they cover it up and pretend that it wasn't so?
I came to terms with my fathers sexual abuse a long time ago. Other family members haven't. I bite my tongue at times, I don't want to say anything for fear of upseting thoes who may not even remeber how bad it was. What do I do? I try to say nothing? But it makes me sick when my sister, on her fifth or sixth glass of scotch - goes on about what a happy home we had and what a great father he was. Bu%$$%@@. I don't know where this version of reality comes from!
