You tell because you want things to change - it's got to be worth it.
My family’s response was so important to me. They’re not going to go away – they’re not like friends. You have to be around them for the rest of your life.
I just didn’t think they would believe me. I thought they knew and didn’t care. Believing me showed me they cared for me. It was important to feel believed straight away… a relief!
People say just get over it… they don’t know what you have been through… what you have had to lose. Hearing people say that …makes it worse.
