You are thinking about this the wrong way...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You have it wrong, Becca-Taylor. I'm not sure why you would think that your family would somehow look at you differently if you told. YOU ARE THE VICTIM HERE!

And don't for one second think that because someone is not "exactly attractive" that would shield the person from sexual assault. Sexual assault is not about attractiveness. It's not about the victim at all. It's about sexual gratification of the sex offender. And don't assume that he ISN'T going after the male students. He may well be sexually assaulting BOTH males and females.

I believe that you may be having these dreams about rape because this matter is not settled in you. If you don't tell someone about what this pervert has done to you, you may well continue to be plague by these nightmares. If you don't tell, there will come a time in your adult life when you will beat yourself up for NOT telling, because you will always wonder if this sex offender offended someone else because you didn't tell.

Talk to your mother. Tell her everything. Mother's (and father's) are there to protect you and to help you through difficult times. Lean on them. That's what they're there for. You shouldn't be dealing with this by yourself. You deserve to have the help you need.

Consider contacting Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the sexual assaults. And I sincerely hope you do disclose.
