Why doesn't my family believe me?
(Oshawa, Ontario, Canada)
My family have never wanted to discus my abuse. I am in a support group for men who were sexually abused as children, and I think my family is ashamed of me for going to this support group. I don`t know how to handle it, because they (my family) have never given me any support. It's as though they would like to pretend my abuse never happened.
Darlene, I would like to thank you for creating this wonderful web-site. It really gives us a voice, and we all need to be heard.
