First of all, you did not "let" the abuse go on. Your grandfather "groomed" you and took advantage of your vulnerabilities. As the adult, he had all the power. As the child, you had no power. So don't ever think what happened was your fault. Fault lies solely on his shoulders. Secondly, sexual stimulation feels goods; and your grandfather used that against you. It's no surprise that you sought out more of the same as you got a bit older. Your grandfather's reprehensible actions have taught you that sex can be used to "medicate" yourself. Sex has become a way for you to zone out of your painful situations in favour of doing something that releases a feel-good chemical reaction. You need help with this, Victoria. It needs to stop, otherwise you are at great risk. Please tell someone about what happened to you so that you can get that help. Please consider contacting one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
