I was molested when I was 8 and I remember every detail about it. I've never told anyone but my bf, for years I thought it was a dream until I got older and older, remembering things little by little, now I know that it really happened and it's been haunting me.. I can only imagine how many other children this guy did this too... I want to tell my mom but I don't know how to.. I'm 22 now and I don't think she will believe me.. The sad thing is, at the age of 8, I didn't know that what just happened to me was bad, so after it happened, I ran home and told my mom that "I just had sex" and she told me to "never to say that again because that's nothing to joke about" and she spanked me. I never spoke about it after that. As a parent, she should have known something was wrong. I don't even know how I knew about sex at the age of 8. She should have been concerned and asked me what I meant by me saying that. I need honest advice, should I tell her about this? Or is it pointless?
