If you are still a minor, please contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about what you endured and are still enduring as a result of the abuse you suffered. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counselors 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 abuse. Disclosing what this cousin did to you could very well prevent him sexually abusing another child the way he abused you. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

Whether or not your a minor or an adult, please also consider some form of counseling in order to deal with the lingering effects of being sexually abused. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
