    Hello all,

    My father is a psychopath. He sexually/emotionally/mentally abused me for at least 17 years of my life. I’m finally reporting his abuse to the police in 10 days! My sister and I are reporting together. We’re not sure if the police will go ahead and press charges once we report (they need to feel there is enough evidence to do that.)

    I am not sure if I made this comment in time for the ebook, but if I did I would like to get “Love Fraud โ€” How marriage to a sociopath fulfilled my spiritual plan”.

    Thanks!

    Hi Donna,

    **Trigger Warning to any other adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. I mention child abuse in the writing below*****

    Thank you! I confronted him on being a pedophile and sociopath shortly after I started having flashbacks of the abuse. I moved across the country and he sold his house and moved away too. He never contacted me again after I confronted him. He may have access to his girlfriend’s grandchildren and my estranged sister’s children (I emailed and called my fathers girfriend and her family and my estranged sister and told them that he abused me and is a con man/sociopath but they refuse to believe me). So thankfully by reporting to the police hopefully he can be stopped if he is still abusing children and hopefully his horrific abuse will be exposed and I can begin closure and more healing. I believe he was in a pedophile ring when I was growing up. I have a lot of mental health issues resulting from the abuse (survivor skills ๐Ÿ™‚ ) and distrust in people and relationships I am working on healing through. My history of child abuse at the hands of my father who was extremely manipulative and deceptive definitely set me up to be vulnerable to other sociopaths as an adult but I am stronger and safer than I have ever been. Things are getting a lot better. Piecing my heart, mind, and life back together again, for the first time really! Thanks for creating this website and forum. I look forward to reading your book and continuing to read the info on this site. We are brave people, yes!

    I was raped at 10 and 11. Sold into the sex trade. The first few months I was raped everyday. Even when I was so sick I couldn’t get up. I kept the secret of those years. I married a wonderful Christian man. I kept my past a secret.i thought I could just forget it. I had bad self esteem issues. When perimenopause struck with depression and mood swings I had an affair. It ruined my family but my husband stayed with me. My past came out during M/C. And it floods back now. Sometimes I can’t stand it. My husband is so supportive. I have no one to report this to. It was in a different country. I see now how it affected my marriage. I’ve tried suicide several times in the past. But I feel so ashamed to talk to anyone about my past.i can’t really talk to my husband about it. When I do I get bad anixety attacks. My head spins. That’s about all I can say.

    mary1969 – what a devastating experience. I think you should be commended just for staying alive.

    I think the reason that the pain is flooding back is that you are now strong enough to deal with it, and you have the support of your husband. It is good and appropriate for you to cry, express your anguish, feel anger – whatever emotions are turning up due to your experience.

    At the time all you could do is survive. Now you are processing the emotional pain. No one could get through that experience without repercussions. It is ok to grieve.
