Exclamation I'm confused on weather I was sexually abused or not - February 9th 2013, 10:39 PM

I have been physically abused from around the ages 4-9 years old. I don't know if I was sexually abused or not. But there were clues that I was. Keep in mind I was very young. I'm 15 now.

The clues are:
I would have nightmares that I was raped by my abuser
I would wake up and he would be standing in my room
I would throw up in my sleep and he would be in my room
He wouldn't give me a goodnight kiss while i was awake, I had to be sleeping
I would wake up and there would be brownish white stuff on the tissue when I wiped.
I watched a video in his room that was in the VCR and it was porn, but I didn't know what it was when he came in, he took the caset tape out and was smiling
He would walk around naked while I was in the house
Also, I started masturbating at a very young age. One time I masturbated and he saw me and when I turned around he was smiling.

All of this happened when I was younger than the age of 9.

I'm just confused, I know that he used to beat me and I've always wondered if he has sexually abused me.

I have A LOT of mental problems that I've been suffering with since the age of 9. I even have flashbacks. But the one flashback that I remember is a picture in my head of me laying on my back facing him and him on top of me naked with the lights on in my room. It's very sad. But I don't remember anything happening in real life. It's just the clues and the picture in my head.

Do you think I've been sexually abused? Please help!!

It's possible, none of us here can say truly that you were or weren't. If you really want to know, I suggest talking to a professional about what happened and seeing if they can help you uncover anything that may have happened and/or put your mind at ease.

Like Cheye said none of us can be sure that you have been sexually abused but it could be a possiblity. I think if you really want to know you should talk with a professional and try and uncover it. I was molested when I was like 3-6 and I don't remember it at all but everyone professional I have seen has no doubt in there mind that it happened. Like you I started masturbating really young I was like 4 or 5.
But i really advise you to seek professional help with this
