ACEs – Touch or fondle you…

ACEs Question #3

Did an adult or person at least 5 years older than you ever… Touch or fondle you or have you touch their body in a sexual way? or Attempt or actually have oral, anal, or vaginal intercourse with you?

Unforgettable Memory

I was sitting on the floor like all kids do – close to the television.

He (my 2nd stepfather) said, “Why are you down there?  Come sit next to me on the couch.”

He patted the seat where I was to sit and I complied.  It was innocent.  I had no clue otherwise.  I was twelve years old.

That was the beginning of something that I have wished could have been erased for many years to come.  Perhaps this is what threw me completely off track in life.  The guilt and shame associated with the trauma of molestation is unbelievable.

My answer to questions #3 is YES.
