My dad abused me

(7 Posts)

My dad abused me in ways that I never thought I would have to experience. My life has turned around now I can't trust anyone anymore, people don't understand. My dad didn't go to jail for what he done, maybe he didn't do enough I don't know how I feel about him not going to jail. I know people have had a lot worse than me but what I had was quite bad and I could ent cope for a while. It keeps going around in my head I don't know what to do anymore.

Why didn't he go to jail? Was he not prosecuted or was he given a community order?

I'm very sorry this happened to you and is affecting you so deeply. Have you ever spoken about what happened at length to anyone? Have you seen a counsellor?

Yes I'm currently seeing a counseller as I started self harming, he didn't go to jail because they found no evidence of what he did.

Do you have support from friends and other family?

Sammy, you are not alone. I'm in the same place as you with exactly the same thing. I haven't discovered any particular ways of coping yet, but one thing I can say is that I'm here if you need a sympathetic and understanding ear.

Sammy that's terrible. I'm not sure who you told in so far as you say he didn't go to jail. Do you mean physical or sexual abuse or both?
