I've been raped before. Am I just over reacting? Or should I avoid him, if he comes and lives with us?
I am so very sorry that you are in this terrible situation. There is help for you though, but first you must speak up to someone. YOU ARE NOT OVERREACTING. He is a criminal who is reprehensible. If you are afraid to talk to your parents, talk to your school guidance counselor, school nurse, trusted teacher, or school principal. This cousin is a criminal sex offender and child molester and he will act again. Additionally PLEASE try to get professional counselling to help you handle the trauma and PTSD that WILL hit you as you grow older.
Another source of assistance is R.A.I.N.N. - watch this video - "You're Not Alone" http://www.rainn.org/get-help/national-sexual-assault-online-hotline and a phone line to National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1.800.656.HOPE There is hope. Also in Pennsylvania you can contact Children and Family services. I know that there are some in the Phili area because my daughter trained in one. Good Luck!!
Well, whatever you do, don't live with him. People that do that tend to have a habit of repeat offenses. If whomever you're living with insists on him living there, and won't listen to you [Make sure you do make your point that you don't want them there], then get the law involved. You're not helpless, there are options. :-)
No you are not over reacting if your dad lets him come there give him my number so maybe I can talk him out of it how old are you and him? How old were you when he raped u? I grw up with my step dad feelin me up while I was sleeping. I lived in fear from the time ~ was 12 untill I moved out at 16. thats how you will be
no no tell your mom or dad and tell if that doesn't work call the coppers and tell them everything don't be ashamed or embarrassed it's better to let it out wit no then to have to go on years in pain and misery because you didn't say anything get help and stay away from him
You need to speak up. Call the cops if necessary. He's an adult. Your dad does not need to be a good uncle. A grown adult can take care of himself.
If you need someone to talk to, try this site, they have an online chat www.rainn.org
Thats the point, im too ashamed to say anything and embarrassed. . . if anything my dad would think I lead them on since he already thinks im a wh*re even tho im a virgin(well technically). . . . . and a good girl =/
u need to tell some one and let your feelings out it is hard for you to say but it will help if you dont eant to tell the cops tell some one in your fam. or your friend it will realy help you over come it
I've been raped more then once as well. . . . and its because hes a long lost cousin and he lives so far away from the family so yea. . . my dad is trying to be a nice uncle. . since his dad is in jail
Well, you'll have to get over that if you actually want to be safe. You should consider therapy, too. Talking about it with someone you don't know that can help you sort through things can really help.
I want to get help but my dad. . . . . my family would like hate me, sometimes things are better unsaid? =( I want to be helped but im just in this steel cage with a sign that says shut up. . .
sleep with a knife under your pillow in case he trys to rape you again... but first, tell your parents that he raped you. if that doesnt work, tell the police.
why the hell would he be living with you, my sister got raped more than once get away call the cops.
I was 7 until I was 12. . . im 15 and he's 23. . .
so what! he has no right to be "nice"
call the police
