I was fourteen years old when my uncle used my need to be loved for his own sexual gratification.
I want to share my story in the hope of helping someone else out there going through something similar, you are not alone and you should speak out.
My step dad was very abusive, we spent out days being told we were fat pigs, lazy bitches, you name it we were called it.
We dodged coffee mugs being thrown at our heads if the coffee wasn’t made right.
We were beaten with belts, sticks and fists.
At the age of fourteen, I was kicked out after being beaten up rather badly, I moved in with friends of the family, a husband and wife who we grew up around.
Essentially I considered them my aunt and uncle.
For the first few months, things were great, I was happier than I had ever been. They treated me like the daughter they never had, I finally had a real family.
A few months went by and then the sexual abuse started.
I was scared but at the same time I enjoyed the attention
He treated me like a daughter but at the same time a lover. He showed me love …most of the time.
He showed me love, most of the time.
He fed off my need to be loved
There was physical abuse when I didn’t give him what I wanted.
This went on for six years.
I was twenty when I found out I was pregnant, it is not his child.
I was having a girl and I finally pressed charges.
At court, he was given 19 months in prison for my 6 years of torture.
He’s getting out Monday after serving 12 months.
I’m scared and I’m angry
I have a family now, I’m afraid of what he is capable of.
I was taken advantage of; he fed off my need to be loved
I look in the mirror and feel disgusted.
I feel like I am drifting through life, not living it.
I’m not worthy of love.
This man has destroyed me.
He fed off my need to be loved and abused me in the worst possible way.
He gets to live again while I will never be free of the nightmares.
