Like him, I'm also very strong when I get cross. Incestuous Abuse My first memory of it was when I was about five years old. I remember my father coming to my bedroom at about one o'clock in the morning when everyone else was asleep. He woke me by turning on the light, then he asked me to take off my panties and lie on my back with my legs up in the air. He told me if I didn't do it, he'd tell my mother I was a naughty girl. I didn't want her to think I was naughty so I did what he said. He told me to keep my nightdress over my legs so I couldn't see what he was doing.
That's when we started having sex problems. I didn't want sex with him because my dreams and nightmares from the past started coming back. Every time my husband came near me, I thought for a second that it was my father, so I'd push him away. I was so big with my pregnancy that the doctor told me it would be dangerous for me to have sex for six months before the birth. When I was five months pregnant and I could feel Christopher inside me, I started losing all interest in sex. And being so big, I didn't feel beautiful any more.
So that's what I did when he started touching me after that. It helped a bit; he stopped coming to my room as often as before. I made my mother promise not to tell my brothers about it. I said I'd tell them myself when I was older. When I told her about two years ago that I was going to tell them about it, she admitted she'd told them long ago. It was a big shock to find out they'd known about it all those years. I now understand why their relationship with my father changed at a certain point; it was because my mother told them about it and they hated him for it.
