I was ONCE seriously sexually assaulted by my uncle. I was 12 and he was 21. He intimately and for atleast 10 minutes fondled my vulva and vagina. He was carrying me on his back and supporting me by leaning forward and holding my bottom. I had a dress on.
I didn't know what to say or do, neither did he say anything but laugh a bit once he stopped. My mother and his mother (my grandmother) were in the next room. I grew up afraid of my mother and her tempered, so I would never have confided in her on anything anyway. [My relationship with my own children is very very close, thankfully!]
I still to this day (30 years later) feel shamed and disgusted and feel so aggressive toward my uncle if I can't avoid seeing him. Yet, I act perfectly fine and well and say nothing when I do. But his treatment of me has corrupted my sexual feelings and experiences ever since.
What should I have done all those years ago? What should I do now (if anything), knowing he has a grown family (including 3 girls) who all love me very much?
Thank you all who read and/or reply.
Just trying to get opinions and advice to help me pass this yet again.
