I am here to open up about being abused by my father. He abused my sister and I. I developed selective mutism and severe social phobia as a child because I had the burden of not telling anyone. I still have social phobia, so life has been hard. I have never opened up to anyone besides my sister and mother (who did not do much to protect us). I am so glad I found this forum and I hope to open up more.

Hi Lize4.
Thank you for sharing with us. I had a similar childhood and I'm so so sorry for the pain you must be going through.
