Child Abuse Ignored
(British Columbia, Canada)
I am a father of two young boys - i live everyday with regret and anger - their mother was abused from age 6 to 14 by a stepfather - she revealed this to me several years ago - and i have watched her life go down ever since.
We went to the police and nothing materialized - She is no longer in our lives and i have watched her become a drug addict and thief - to the point of arrest - i am at my wits end and the guilt is slowly killing me inside. I live in fear that i havent done enough.
I have attacked the indivdual online - Facebook - i have contacted police - but have been told - she has to report it.
I am worried that i havent done enough - i cant sleep and am having difficulties with everyday life - Why do i feel this - i didnt do anything wrong - but i havent done anything right either. Where can i get help - for her - for me and for my children.
