Within the past month, I have remember some instances of sexual abuse from when I was 6. I am now 19. The man who abused me was my next door neighbor, and he is still living next door to my parents. The memories I had were of two separate instances and even though I only recently remember them, I can now see how those events impacted my whole childhood. I've had a lot of strong emotions and I would really like to talk to someone who has been through something similar. It's hard for others to understand what I have gone through, so I'd appreciate it if anyone on here would be willing to talk.
Hi. I can relate I know what you are going through. I was sexually abused from the age of 2-11 years of age. The person who abused me was my mothers boyfriend who as a child I thought was my father. I am now 35 and continue to have memories. My mother to this day continues to have a relationship despite the fact that she saw him molesting me. I no longer speak to my mother or anyone in my family. She blamed me for everything and at age 18 told me I was a husband taker. I couldn't believe she said that, when I was only 2 years old when her boyfriend sexually abused me. I haven't spoken to her in 15 years. It is hard for me on numerous occasions to stay strong but sometime it's hard. She was not there to protect me.
