I was sexually abused by my stepfather for 12 years, I have been in and out of therapy for the last 8 years. Needless to say I suffer from depression and PTSD. This past Monday stepfather died. I told my husband that I feel like a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders and that I can start to live my life now, not fearing that I'll see him again. I'm still hurting because even after my mother found out she still stayed with him and after they divorced she moved back in with him. At times I think I would like to have a relationship with her but everytime I see her I'm disappointed that she didn't stop the abuse and I feel that she chose him over her own daughter and grandchildren. I would like to hear from anyone who has been in a similar situation. Thanks for listening.
