Please talk to your mother to ensure you never again have to be near the man who sexually abused you. And then speak to her about getting you the help you need in order to deal with what he did to you. You need and deserve that kind of help. Don't try and deal with this alone. And always remember that you did nothing wrong, nothing at all. In fact, you can be very proud of yourself for disclosing to your mother what you found. That took courage and resolve. Use that same courage and resolve to keep moving forward in your life, but get some help doing so. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Dear Tarrah:
I just want to say that, although I can never know exactly how you feel, your story sounds a lot like what my stepdad did to me. Please get help somehow. I was terrified of the idea of getting authorities involved, but if he still has access to you, I believe that is a good option. Because Child Protective Services was involved with me, my stepdad isn't allowed near me ever again. It's easier to heal when you know that your abuser can't even be in the same area as you. I still remember what it was like to feel truly safe for the first time in years.
I also wanted to say that you are SO SO SO BRAVE for telling. It took me over four years to do that, and I had to have CPS help me. and if I'm reading your story correctly, we are the same age and similar things happened to us at similar times. It's scary and confusing and I'm so sorry that it happened to you. I wish you the best! And once again, you are super brave and strong.
