You've said it all . . .

You articulated yourself exceptionally well, Kori. What you are feeling is not uncommon. Indeed, it is to be expected.

It wasn't your fault, you know. The sexual abuse wasn’t your fault, even though you say you willingly participated, even though you "liked it." You "liked it" because it felt good. That too is not uncommon. It is perfectly normal for a young male to get an erection when he is scared, anxious or nervous. It is perfectly normal for a victim to experience an orgasm, whether male or female. Kori, if you haven't already, check out my male victims of sexual abuse page on this site for some enlightening information on this issue. I suggest you read through all my sexual abuse and sexual abuse victim pages. They will help you realize that you are not alone. You'll find them listed on the navigation bar on the left of this page.

I'm delighted that you are planning to seek out therapy, and that you are committed to ending the cycle of abuse and neglect. You have taken a huge step toward healing and recovery. I truly commend you, because it starts with you, Kori. Congratulations! In spite of all the abuse you lived through, you truly understanding how important ending the cycle is. I so admire you for that.

Kori...

Kori... I am 18 and our stories are very similar. I am happy you want to get help but please don't try to be strong and tough if it's to much for you, like when you say your thought are telling you to quite bitching. Fall apart as long as you can pull yourself together, cry because you have some-one to cry with, you have me and every-one else that has posted a story here. Heal your mind then heak your heart. You are not a bad person, do not let you past control your future.
