Topic: Child Sexual Abuse
My father started molesting me when I was six. It began with him fondling me on his lap, or next to him on the couch. He progressed to coming into my bedroom at night and performing oral sex when everyone else in the house was sleeping. As I got older, he would hit me, verbally abuse me, and the sexual abuse worsened. He called me fat and told me I was a slut and a whore. He even threatened my life on multiple occasions.
He started forcing me to perform oral sex on him and his “friends,” allowing them to use my body as well. He raped me and allowed the other men to do so. He would force objects into my vagina, and he took pornographic photographs of me. He sexually abused me for over three years, physically and verbally abusing me until I was eighteen and moved out.
Have you sought any sort of medical help, therapy etc?
Any particular resources that you recommend or have used to help you recover?
