Bit of my story -sexual abuse
Hi I've been an offline lurker for a while but only just made an account. I wanted to share a bit of my story now. At 8,9 and 10 I was sexually abused by my step father. I am 15 now. I keep going back to them places of being abused and having funny feelings in my head. I didnt report him because he loved me and I loved him (he made me believe that). He would make me do things and wear things for him. Since I have coped by dissociating also keep putting myself in vunerable postitions going out late at night in parks and hoping someone will harm me again. Ive been told this is sexual self injury. I am so messed up in the head from all the abuse I suffered I don't know how to move on. I have CPTSD (complex post traumatic stress disorder) and agoraphobia.
