Bravo for having the courage to tell. Always remember that your mother had all the power. She controlled you with that power, power she began to wield when you were very very young and vulnerable. So of course it would stand to reason that you wouldn't cross her. It was your way of surviving. Instead of blaming yourself for what SHE did, instead of feeling shame at not "stopping" the abuse earlier, consider how much power she really did have over you. Consider how vulnerable you actually were, for food, for shelter, for love. What's important is that eventually, as you matured, you did tell. And telling was a very risky thing to do, in large part because society doesn't want to believe that mother's can be sexual predators, especially against their young sons. So give yourself the credit you deserve. You DID act which put an end to the abuse. Not only that, she is now in prison as a result, where she can no longer harm you or others. You have no guilt, shame or blame to carry. That's all on her. Don't forget that. I send you love, light and healing energy, Timothy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Glad that you told
by: Anonymous

Timothy, I'm glad that you told the teacher. If not for your teacher, then that sicko could've been abusing other young, vulnerable kids as well...and you did the right thing, which forced her to stop. I hope you're in a safe place now and that you would try counselling.

I wish I could hug the younger you

And the current you. I'm your age right now, and I'm also suffering from consequences of abuse.

I don't view it as you "allowing" anything to happen. You were listening to and trying to take care of your primary source of life and guidance.
It takes tremendous courage to do what you did, and what you continue to do.
Dealing with the affects of this are trying, and I can only imagine what you're going through.
I appreciate you sharing this b/c I can identify with it and it gives me strength that you are keeping on just like us.

I hope you find everything you're looking for in life and find people that are truly nurturing, safe and respectful to surround yourself with.
love
