I'm going to put a different perspective on this for you. Keeping it all inside is doing exactly what your sex offender of a "dad" instructed you to do. Keeping all that happened at the hands of this sicko from your mother is continuing to listen to what he said and wanted. You can break free of the hold he still has on you by defying him. Tell, tell and tell some more. Free yourself from this hold he has on you, and allow yourself to feel fully the emotions you have been burying all this time. You are worth that. Your voice is there; it only needs to speak a little louder. Write it first if you must, then read it aloud if that's what works to begin with. Both you and your mother are a whole lot stronger than that pedophile led you to believe. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Hi there,

I'm a first time visitor and a mom. All I can say is that I have a 14 yr old son, and if this happened to him, more than anything I would want to know about what happened so that I could help him move past the trauma of it and try to regain the relationship that was lost between us. You may think you are protecting your mom by not telling her, and you don't want to hurt her by telling, but I believe that she feels powerless right now because it is her job to help and protect you. Let her in, tell her what happened. Together you will be stronger, and the load will be lightened. Together you will move past what happened and reclaim your life.

I was in a very similar situation as you, but I ended up telling before I was raped. It was so hard to tell, and I was threatened by the person that he would hurt my pets and family, but I told. I am glad I did. I know how you want to protect your mom and those around you and keep it all in, thinking you are strong, but the best thing you can do is let it out. By letting it out and telling your mom, you will start to let go and reclaim your life. You are a wonderful person, and this was not fair or right to happen to you, but you have a great attitude and I know you will do well in life. I wish you the best in all that you do.
