It's not unusual for memories to start coming back. What happens is that as we move through the various ages and stages of our lives, we can get triggered. But also what happens is that when trauma occurs, the mind may not be able to handle it very well, not to mention your age at the time of the abuse. As a person becomes stronger and more stable, the mind is often then able to release the memories that have been blocked. This doesn't always happen, but it can and does. What's important to understand is that you did not make a mess of things by telling. Telling may well have saved other children from being abused, Consider how important that is, Frederikke. The fact that you told at all was very brave. And now you must reach out for the help you need in order to deal with your mounting anger at the abuser, and the parents and kids for the mistreatment they dished out to you. You told the truth. They may not know that, but you do. They may never know that. They are limited in their view of the world. They can't fathom an adult they liked and even admired doing something so heinous, so they blame a vulnerable child because it's so much easier than taking stock of who they are as human beings. Don't let the anger and hostility take over, because if that happens, you are the one who lives in a prison. You deserve so much more than that. Seek out the help you need. I send you love, light and healing energy, Frederikke. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Wow, just wow...

Frederikke, those people should've believed you, you're not a liar; you're just telling the truth; I'm sure they just didn't want to know the truth. Just because no one listened to you (except for your parents), that doesn't mean that they still won't listen to you now because I'm already listening.

I am sorry that people labelled you a liar. I have found in my life that child abuse victims are often blamed. But you did the right thing, and you spoke out, it is those people problem that they turn a blind eye. I know you will get out of the town , and I hope you can find a support system that can help you cope.Keep your head up, even though I don;t know you I wish you the best in life.
