I know people will say I should have, but I really hope no one victim blames me. It was awful to live through that, and I wish I had the inner strength at the time to see him put in jail. No one supported me at the time, and even my own "family" victim blamed me.
I'm SO sorry. No wonder you feel the way you do!!! I would sick to my stomach and just outraged at both their behavior.

Hard to go through court when you have no support. You probably did the best thing for yourself at the time, exercising good self-care tactics. I think that was smart, given the trauma. I also understand wanting him in jail for it too.

I am glad you have a professional therapist. What does he/she suggest for you?
