Started as a Toddler

by Amelia (not real name for safty)
(Location Undisclosed)

It all started when I was two or three well my earliest memories anyway. My father would come into my room and sexually touch me and rape me in my private areas from ages 2-5 then again for just touching at 7-8 then again for touching at 11-15. Im 19 now and I'm in councelling but I still have trouble talking about it though it has been a year and a half since I told the police. I have struggled with how I feel about myself. I am ashamed and feel like I am a sl*t and wh**e even though I know I shouldn't feel that way. But feeling and knowing are two different things. I still feel it is my fault for it happening to my younger sister and friend because I didn't tell when it happened to me but I was told and promised that he never ever did that horrible thing to anyone else and I stupidly believed him. Anyway he got two years in jail but only because he plead guilty. If he didn't plead guilty then he would have gotten away with it. Any way Thank you for reading my story I know it is vague but I don't like the details of what happened so yeah.
