I've been abused sexually since I was a child


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm 18. As far as I could remember, I've been "groomed" by my father since childhood. He would touch me inappropriately, and we used to shower together. I thought that it was normal between father and child but as I grew older, he started doing wrong things to me. I was stupid and naive, thinking that it was okay and enjoyed it. It has been going on since I was around 6 until 16 or 17.it stopped now because we fought with each other a lot and not talking. But as I grow older I started to realize that those things are wrong, father wasn't supposed to do that. I feel really guilty, ashamed, disgusted by myself. I also resent my mom because she is never around, never takes care of me, give me little attention. This guilt is eating me alive, and I just want to forget everything... Currently I'm still living with both of my parents, and we're in difficult situation at the moment so i don't know what to do. I can not tell my mom because she will be shocked and her health will worsen, going to police will also cost me my dignity, people will shame me. It's taboo. I want to run away somewhere far from this family... Not to mention I feel like I might be bisexual which isn't acceptable in my country. I need advice please.

if only my mom took care of me, and pay attention to me instead of father, this shameful mistake wouldn't happenned. I feel like I've done something horribly wrong and it can't be fixed, it can't be forgiven, and it can't be forgotten either. I want to disappear, or erase my memory because it's too much. Sometimes I'll have flashbacks and it makes me hate myself and my mom more...
