Dee shares an extraordinary story about the terrible and hurtful thing that was done to her, the struggle she faced inside to share it, and how by facing that struggle, and telling her Mother what happened, she became the hero of her own story, went to the police, testified in court and she put a bad guy in jail.

Dee lived with her Mom and her Mom had a lot of friends. One day while her Mom went out to pick up dinner with her girlfriends, one of her guy friends came over to watch Dee. He was a friend of the family. While her Mother was out, he closed her bedroom door and sexually abused her. He did things to her that she did not want.
Sexual abuse and child abuse are very serious things particularly when it is child sexual abuse. It's a thing that can be hurtful, confusing, shameful and very scary. Dee did not know what to do. When she was in school she was very quiet and kept to herself. She told no on what he did to her. Molested, sexual abuse, physical abuse, assault, sexual assault, whatever it was called, all she knew is that she was hurt and extremely sad.
Then one day when she was driving with her mom the truth came out and she felt so relieved it did. She told someone she trusted, her Mom, what happened and they cried together. He abused her sexually. Then eventually, they went to the police and told them too. She ended up at a trial and was incredibly brave to stand up for herself and testify - tell the trust about what he did to her. As a result, he is in jail, a bad guy is in jail, he is a sex offender, a sexual predator. And Dee is on her way to getting healthy and happy again.
"my sexual abuse story" is not one that will define her. Any form of abuse is not okay, whether it is sexual, physical or emotional. No one should be a victim of abuse - no one should have an abuse story. Dee is a victim but one that bravely faced the man who hurt her. He is a sex offender who hurt kids. She is not sad anymore but what happened will never go away. This is one abuse story that has sope.

I have an abuse story ( a real one, not a joke):
I lost my mom when I was really young. She was being abused by my own father and took her life. I have always remembered him being so angry and really.... inappropriate. He would watch porn right in front of me and my sis as kids while we would watch a movie and one time he made me undress in front of him and my grandfather ( on my mother's side) who I didn't really know at the time. He also would ' play spank us', which made me very uncomfortable and when I asked him to stop he just yelled at me. There would also be instances of actual physical abuse. He would drag me and my sister by the hair and when he would spank us, there would actually be bruises all over our bodies. But, other than that, most of the time it was just plain out verbal abuse. For example, if we didn't understand a homework problem, he would just yell at us and claim we just didn't want to do the work. There are worse instances, like the time he thought I was poking my stomach out in a dress ( which I wasn't and made me feel fat), he made fun of me and poked out his stomach. I actually cried in front of him but instead of apologizing, he just yelled and told me to grow a spine. To wrap it up, I told my school, ran away, and went into foster care for 2 years before my aunt adopted me. If I'm honest, I hate my dad. I actually have heard people be like 'don't be like your dad and shut him out like he did to his dad' and ' he is still your dad and he deserves respect'. I call bullshit on it because he hasn't changed and he made that decision to care more about himself and his pride than his own kids.
If you are being abused, please, for the love of god, tell someone. It may seem scary and you may want to quit but I promise you it will be better and there will be light at the end of all the fighting because YOU DESERVE BETTER.
I am worried about my step grandfather (not biological grandfather) doing this to me. He is always looking at my butt when I walk near him. He motions me over a lot and whispers to me “you should sleep here tonight.” I always say no. My parents don’t believe me. One time he woke in the middle of the night I was still awake and faked sleep when he walked in. He stood at the edge of the bed I was sleeping in and moved my blanket off me and just thought he was repositioning it but he wasn’t he took it off me and reached for my shorts. I jumped quickly and he just said they where crinkled..... I need advice.
First off, I'm so sorry you are going through all of this. He is a real creep. Are there any other people you trust who you could tell? Maybe like a school counselor or family friend? Just know that what he is doing to you is NEVER your fault. He's a sick person who knows what he's doing. Even if your parents don't believe you, that doesn't make his actions okay. Your parents might be in denial about whats been happening. Some parents are because they don't want t believe that someone they know and trust would abuse their child. Regardless, you are brave and you will get through this. If you ever need someone to talk to, I'm all ears.
Rainn.org is a sexual abuse and assault hotline that helps people in situations similar to yours get the resources and help they need. I hope this helps :)

Like please stop !!! These people in these videos got abused and stuff then you come in and beg for likes !! It’s starting to piss me off
Hey - I'm so sorry that happened to you. You are so brave for telling your mother and you are such a wonderful person for having the courage to go to to court and get him sent to prison. You're great buddy. I hope life has been going good for you.
make this blue if you think that the people who abuse the girl deserves a life?
(i'm not doing this for likes, i'm doing it for the people who get abuse out there! I want to see how many of you think that this type of abusing stuff is just enough?!)
Ya'll are not fucking funny by making jokes like : "mY aBuSe sToRy", then follow it up with something random and irrelevant to the situation. Imagine if it happened to you, would you want people to laugh at you and joke about what you went through? No, right? THEN STOP FUCKING SAYING IT, IT'S NOT FUNNY.
@Cayden Yeah well that's what you believe and you are not one to say what you think is gonna happen since your'e not "god". Btw I'm an atheist so telling a gay athiest that they are going to hell for being gay is like telling a vegetarian they aren't allowed to eat meat. It's basically pointless. Nice try though.
