Janis - Something to say

Janis

I was sexually and physically abused by my mum’s partner from the age of around 7 til I was 12 years old.

My mum wasn’t aware until I was 13 and she found a letter I wrote to an agony aunt.

She didn’t want to fight it family didn’t believe it and I became an angry teenager and left home at 15 as I couldn’t live with her new husband who ironically was jailed for underage sex!

I have struggled for years with being hugged from behind as that’s how it always happened.

I so wanted to take my abuser to court but my husband didn’t want it to be continually discussed and thought it best to keep it quiet.

I’ve been in and out of therapy for years and now I have an urge to talk about it openly.

So I inked my skin with the SA tattoo with survivor under it to have people ask me about it.
