What you shared is not weird, and I DO believe you. Now believe me when I tell you that abusers remember what they've done. They may be really good at hiding it, but they remember. They often try to convince themselves that their victims don't remember, but they as abusers DO remember and know what they did was wrong. They just believe they got away with it. And now you're living in fear and haunting. Please tell your mother. If you don't feel as though you can tell her, then speak to a school counsellor or trusted teacher. Just keep telling until someone gets you the help you need. Don't keep this secret any longer because it will continue to haunt you, and eventually will affect every aspect of your life. You don't deserve to live this way. Katie, you didn't say where you live, so I can't point you directly to a hotline number to call. Instead, I'll point you to the hotlines listed on my stories page so that you can call to talk to someone confidentially. What these boys did was criminal; they need to be held accountable for that. But mostly, you deserve help for what you endured. Just always remember that you were not to blame here. Your abusers were to blame because they chose to abuse you. Don't ever forget that. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I send you love, light and healing energy, Katie.
