This sick excuse of a man "groomed" you. He used what you deem as punishment as a way to control and manipulate you. And because this started when you were so young, there was a dynamic present that kept you manipulated and controlled, even into adulthood. But make no mistake, he abused you, sexually, physically and emotionally. And it is very difficult to believe that your mother didn't at least suspect what he was doing to you. Don't for one second think that you "consented". You weren't in a position to be able to consent. Period. End of story. And you have every reason to be concerned about him sexually abusing your children. Please seek help from a local woman's shelter or domestic violence hotline. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

This is not your fault.
by: AnonymousT

Darlene is right, he groomed you. That is hard to hear, when a person accepts the abuse they think they were okaying it. This is not true.

It's HARD to get out of the cycle. I understand not stopping the abuse as an adult - you'd been dealing with it most of your life....how does one change something they've dealt with for so long?

Use the crisis lines that Darlene has. Get some outside info on what you can do to keep away from him. Stay away at all costs. DO NOT let him back in. If you do - find a new way to get out. Just ALWAYS work to keep him far away.

All my luck and all my best wishes go to you!
