You'll note I changed up all the names you included here. That's because I want you to remain anonymous. Privacy is important on my site.

There is a lot going on in your story. I'll only deal with what J--- did to you and your cousin. What he did was wrong and inappropriate, and yes, it could have led to much worse. But it didn't. To say that your whole life has been affected by him flashing you once at 2 years of age, a memory that is splotchy at best, is leaning toward catastrophizing this one situation. I suspect that the way it was handled was a contributing factor in this, as well as all the other incidents you referred to. Stephanie, you need to put what J--- did to you and your cousin into perspective. Please talk to your mother about counseling so that you can deal with the way this has impacted you. Thank you for sharing your story and your all-important message about telling, with my visitors and me.
