None of what happened was your fault. None of it. Don't EVER blame yourself. And please tell your mother EVERYTHING. It's not YOU causing her pain when you tell, it's the situation and how she didn't/couldn't protect you. And she can't do that if you don't talk. Don't keep this to yourself another second. You need help dealing with this. And though you have someone to talk to in your friend, this friend should not keep this a secret; if you can't tell for yourself, this friend should tell someone who could help you. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

I agree with Darlene
by: KC

You should NOT blame yourself. It was HIS fault that it happened there is seriously something wrong with HIM not you. As a young child there was nothing you could do about the abuse, you were vanarable and he took advantage of that. Don't blame yourself for his stupidity.

Don't think about hurting your mom, it didn't hurt her that you told her, it hurt her that it happened to you. It's okay to tell your brothers and your dad. I'm happy that you found a friend that you can tell everything to. I had a friend like that I told my story to, her name is Tasha and she was heaven sent. I'm happy that you have someone like that, it helps A LOT.

Your pain will eventually go away...
by: Anonymous

You are not alone... I am a 25 year old male and I was sexually abused by 2 older men in my family and one older woman from when I was an infant until I was the age of 6. I know how it feels when you tell someone and then feel responsible for the persons sadness; but you need to push past that... part of you feeling like that is because to some degree you might have blamed yourself or took responsibility for the abuse but you are innocent. You are the one who has gone through a painful experience and you deserve to be heard... Your mom will be ok, you telling her is at least going make your mom feel like she can help in some way and that you trust her.

well even though you guys say this now the situation is totally different. She doesn't seem to care at all and always push's it aside. Because of nightmares I don't go to sleep until early in the morning the next day so today I didn't fall asleep till almost 8am. Well at 11 she woke me up and I tried to explain to her why I was tred and didn't want to go to church but everytime I tried to explaim why I was tired she cut me off and screamed at me about how she didn't want to hear any excuses. So I finally walked off anf muttered under my breath saying that I hated her and she came over to me and started choking me and slapped me. She doesn't care about me so I don't care anymore, I hate her.
