My BF of 7 yrs was abused as a child in more ways than you can imagine. Molested by and uncle...no one in the family knows. He was forced to sleep in an attic as a child, sweltering heat and ice on the ceiling in winter. On the floor because you could not stand up anyway without hitting your head. He was left in the car in the parking garage of the hospital at 2 with his then 5 yr old sis while the parents were in hospital having the next one for about 8 hours. He has been beaten. Gone hungry(sent to school with no lunch) wearing the same dirty sox from the week before. Due to these last things was basically a social outcast. No friends allowed to come over, no sports, nothing associated with normal childhood. He is such a mess it is a wonder to me he functions at all. He is afraid to seek help because he says if they find out what is in his head they will lock him up. How do I help him?
