Abused teenager reluctant to open up
Dear Abby: My grandfather recently went to jail for having child pornography on his laptop. The lawyers and everyone else say he molested me and my sister. I almost had to testify.
I’m only 13 and have talked with people, but they don’t get it. I don’t want to talk to a therapist or anything, but my mom and aunt think I should.
Should I? I feel really sad right now. I first learned about this 2 years ago, but it still hurts. I kind of feel uncomfortable talking about it to people other than my best friends. I write sad poetry to express my feelings and it helps some.
