Never, EVER apologize for needing support or advice. You deserve help just as much as everyone else; you're not bothering anyone by reaching out to us here, okay?

To answer your question, yes, you are doing the right thing by making the report. Making a report is such a hard step to take - it requires so much strength and courage and bravery, so you should be really really proud of yourself for doing this. It's very normal to be nervous, scared, or confused; you've been through a lot and again, telling someone what's happened can be very scary. Is there someone in your real life who knows what happened between you and your cousin, someone who could go with you to the police? Having a familiar face around can make the process a little bit less frightening, a little bit easier. Also - tell the officer assigned to your case that you're nervous about the report! The police just want to help, I'm sure they'll try to make this as easy as possible for you.

Again, you should be so proud of yourself for taking this step! Best of luck and take really good care of yourself, let us know how it goes.

i think that you should still continue on with it.
if you don't you'll have this over your head for so long...

if anything happens;
the people her on TH will always be here...
i know it's not the same as your family; but it's something.

Hey there, Theresa.

Making a report and what follows can be a really scary thing to do. I'm so proud of you for taking that first step and talking about what happened. You should be proud of yourself, too.

I'm sorry the people around you aren't giving you the support you deserve. It's not your fault though, okay? Sometimes people just have a hard time believing that others are capable of hurting someone like that. Hopefully they will come around and support you in time.

I really hope you wont let their reactions keep you from getting the help and justice you deserve. It's up to you if you want to continue with pressing charges, etc. but make sure you do what you want and not what the people around you want, okay? This is your life and your choice.

I think it might be a good idea for you to talk with a therapist about all of this, too. You deserve to have someone there for you especially since the people in your life aren't being supportive.

I hope you're doing okay right now. Don't give up Theresa and you can always PM me if you want to talk.
<3 Emily
