I was abused
My own grandfather was abusing me by touching various parts of my body since grade 4. I'm now 19 but I'm still scared so I have not told anyone or any of my family or friends.I'm always crying alone by the fear that others will see me differently when they know my situation. it is repeated to the force and many times. until this past few days I could not sleep. when I hear people's footsteps at dawn I'm shaking and shaking I think they're always there and that's what they're going to do.I have a hard time. I can not sleep with so much fear and trauma. often when I'm not awake at dawn I dreamed about my grandfather doing something bad for me. Please help me about this. I really dont know what to do
