Just found this support group today and joined. My daughter and I are domestic violence survivors. We left him (my ex husband and her biological father) on March 5 of 2012. It wasn't until 2014 (age 8) that she revealed to her therapist that he was sexually abusing her on a regular basis that started around the age of 3 and persisted up to the age of 6 (when we left).
It's been a long and difficult 5 years. My daughter really struggles. Diagnosed with dissociative disorder and major depressive disorder. Inpatient psychiatric hospital admissions (2 for suicidal ideation and 1 for suicide attempt) over the past 2 years.
I still haven't come to grips with what happened. I am consumed with guilt and anger. I have nothing but hate in my heart. Worst of all I have lost my faith in God, who has always been my rock.
Friends and family keep telling me to move forward, don't dwell in the past, forgive and forget. I just can't, I feel paralyzed.
Good evening everyone so my fiance was charged and convicted of solicitation of a minor over electronic device and attempting to meet with said minor he never did meet with the minor, it was a sting operation entire time so no minor was in danger. anyways he is currently in a penitentiary where he has received multiple threats on his life and I am not sure how I'm supposed to help him through...
So, our one son is facing three felonies and two misdeamors. Its being kept in juvenile court. In about a month, there is another hearing and his PO tells me its an arrainment and sentencing all rolled into one. I keep asking if he is facing jail and/or detention and no one wants to tell me anything.What should I expect here?
