My abuse and punishments - October 14th 2016, 05:29 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of rape or abuse, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I started seeing a phsychologist several months ago for issues caused by the sexual and physical abuse of my stepmom from ages 12 to 16. My counselor asked me to open up about my abuse with friends but I'm not ready for that so I found this discussion board and wanted to know if I can share my stories here.

Welcome, I think you'll find a lot of support here. You're more than welcome to share your stories, but there's no pressure to do so. Also, remember to use a triggering prefix if the content of your post is particularly graphic or detailed. I'm glad you are seeking professional help and I hope the site can provide some additional support for you.

Thank you! I will share brief stories with everyone as my therapist asked me to do and hopefully I will get some replays back from others on here.

You don't need to open up to anyone before your ready. My counsellor told me to do the same but said to when I was ready because I don't really have a support system and he wants me to work on having more people in my corner.

But yes, feeling free to share here and just remember trigger warnings like Katie said. You can also PM me directly if you want.

Feel free to PM me if you ever need to chat or have questions

You can definitely share your stories here if you feel comfortable in doing so!

I also agree with Always*- you don't have to open up until you feel ready. It's good to make sure that whenever you open up to someone that you feel comfortable with them, and that you trust them. It's good to build up a support network too, and TeenHelp can definitely be part of your support!

Re: My abuse and punishments - October 15th 2016, 10:27 PM

One of the more haunting memories I have was when I was 15, my dad was away in the military and my stepmom had who she called her brother over at the house almost every evening and I'm pretty sure he stayed the night most of the times. I got in trouble at school for fighting even though I was the one who got punched by another girl and I never fought back. When my stepmom got home she told me to go to my room and I knew the school called her at work. I sit in my room dreading what was about to come for several hours. Then about 7:30 pm my stepmom and her supposed brother came into my room and I was told to stand up and take off my jeans and underwear. I was accustomed to this by now and did what she said then stood there trying to hide as much as I could with my hands. Then her brother took a seat on my bed and my stepmom handed him a hairbrush and told me to lay over his lap. I did what she said and then felt him put his hand on my butt he held it there while my stepmom lectured me moving it up and down the whole time. After the lecture she told him to give me 15 smacks which he started immediately. After about the 5th one I looked up at my stepmom and seen that she had a very evil grin on her face and I could tell she was enjoying it. I had never looked up before and don't know what made me do it this time but that stuck in my head for ever. After what she called a spanking they went downstairs to the basement where we have another bedroom for guest. this is my first time talking about this but any comments are fine

I'm really sorry you had to go through this but I hope you found talking about it to be helpful. Talking about it in your own time will allow you to fight back when it comes to those memories and what people did to harm you. Talking can be really difficult but it is a good step for you to take.

Maybe when you are ready to talk about this with your psychologist, you can print your posts and take them in your session with you.
