by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

It's always so much more difficult when you disclose to a parent, a mother in particular, and she chooses not to believe you. It is the ultimate in betrayal and abandonment. You're left painfully wondering why she chose him over her own son. Just know and understand that this is on both her boyfriend and her. She could have stopped it but chose to turn a blind eye. And of course, the pedophile took advantage of that vulnerability. I wish what you said about it not being so easy for predators today was actually true. While I agree that the information is out there and that society now knows that boys are also sexually abused, predators still find ways to abuse. And unsuspecting mothers are often targeted. But people like you who open up and speak out about your experiences will make, have made, a difference. So keep telling your story, John. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Find love in your life
by: Art

John lets start with the big issue. I know of mothers who have seen their new husbands abuse their child and deny anything ever happened. Some have separated and gotten back together again. The emotion of love can make a parent strike at anything that challenges that love. You did nothing wrong. No child brings a sexual assault on himself. Everything you said is an adult who chose you as a victim before you ever met him.

A lot of your response such as wanting to die, the recurring dreams of your experience because those are common too and hating yourself for the part you enjoyed because everyone tells you could not feel that way even though that is a part of all sexual experiences are contributing to your instability.

People have tried hypnosis, chemical and therapy but there only a few psychiatrists who can even help and many like mine committed suicide because he listened to people who suffered more than he could ever have thought possible.

Bring out that beautiful person that is still in you. Stop trying to forget and use your experience in every positive way you can. Above all love yourself and others will love you.
