Another sleepless night full of panicked nightmares & fear of being around people, combined with talking to staff here & my recovery clinician has me thinking again about reporting cousins who abused me for a long time during my childhood to police in the hope that maybe it will take away some of the power these men have over me to this day.
Just wondering if anyone else has done anything similar, and whether or not it helped (some professionals believe it would be helpful for me, others think it will completely tip me over the edge). I know it will cause massive problems in my mum's already dysfunctional family (don't care) but I do worry it will cause issues between my dad & I as he would be left dealing with the fallout from my mum.
Overall yet another decision to make that i feel completely incapable of right now yet feel like I need to.
ETA - not sure where the smilie face on the topic came from
