NEVER blame yourself. It wasn't your fault. NONE of it was or is your fault, and it will never BE your fault. The adults are to blame for these things happening. Please tell someone, otherwise others are going to continue to be abused. I suggest you contact one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially. Thank you for haring your story with my visitors and me.

Hi there...

First of all, masturbation is normal. But when a child does it or does it excessively it is because they are acting out, showing signs of their abuse. Unfortunately, this is a normal reaction after being abused.

Second, Find someone you can tell. Call the hotlines listed in the link above or a school counselor.

If the authorities are alerted CPS hopefully will come investigate. This means if they think the home is unsafe for your siblings and yourself they will remove them. This is the best thing that could be done because someone who's only 17 shouldn't have so much weight on their shoulders. Please let someone know of the current physical abuse and the past sexual abuse.

In the long run, this will enable you to start healing. It's a long journey, but it's worth it.

no closure
by: Anonymous

nothing new here,i dont remember too much growing up except being in my room all the time,i am 4 year's older than my brother,my mother left my father after she had my brother but i never understood why because she always said he was so terrible and she married a man that was alway's putting me down even as a small child i have no memory of so much (i think it's blocked out)except the memory of a night he was drunk i was around 12 he came into my room and touched me and tried to kiss me but i said i was tired and hid my self and coverd my face with my cover's,this same man alway's yelled at me and my mother blamed me for problem's i knew nothing about, if i happen'd to be home at the time of their argument's.a long story and i wont go into detailes,any way he had a anuerism when i was 17 and died,in my arm's one the less so i never got any closure and when i try to talk to my mom about this stuff she look's at me like i disgust her and tells my little sister (this was her dad and i am 18 year's older than her)what a saint he was and she never wanted to accept the fact that he was abusive so i try to deal with it the best way i know how,by talking about it with people i trust,any thing else i should consider?and ive talked to a few counselor's but i just want some type of releif and closure, i mean he's dead, cant ask him to apologize.thank you for listening.
