So long story short, my 4 yo (now 5) disclosed that his father was sexually abusing him for a long time last May. I have been trying to do anything and everything I can to help him, but I had PTSD from abuse from him (sexual assault/mental/physical abuse) upon leaving the relationship and he has fully used it against me to the point that I reported that he was still abusing me. (the court put me in a horrible nesting situation in which of course my ex used against me). My ex and his lawyer then went in and said I was crazy and the court took my children from me without any medical diagnosis and gave them to him, leaving me with supervised visitation.
Ironically, my PTSD has been for the most part gone since early 2021. I am now waiting on a psych evaluation so that I can basically say that he has in fact been doing all of the above to me and my children, but because of COVID everything is majorly delayed and it's been over a month of me looking for someone just to get an appointment. I'm exhausted. It's unbelievable to me that someone can abuse their spouse for six years, their child and that the court just believes them because they are always calm. Of course they are calm....NO ONE was abusing them! The only joy that brings me is that my domestic services therapist testified that it was PTSD and not the mental disorder they are making up. Also, that my career is going very well right now. Any words of hope would be appreciated.
I'm pretty sure my son's half sister (3.5) is being abused by the same boy (my son's stepbrother, her half-brother) who abused him (and at least 4 others, according to my son's caseworker). The boy still lives with my son's father, and therefore her; he was never prosecuted because of his age. (My son does not see the boy. Visitation with his dad takes place at his grandparents' house.)She's...
Just an FYI, today (9/15/21) gymnasts are testifying before Congress about the FBI's handling of the case of Larry Nassar, a team doctor who abused one young female athlete after another. Worth looking up on C-SPAN if you missed it.
