I have just been told my little 16 year old niece was sexually assaulted. It happened at her place of work by a colleague where she works at weekends.

I am so fucking ANGRY that anyone would do this to my niece. She is still a child! I am really proud of her, as she contacted my sister straight away who called the police and took a statement and he was arrested. He's still in custody now.

My sister is in a bad way. My niece is blocking it out from what I can tell. I was assaulted last year and it took me until recently to really acknowledge what had happened so I understand that.

I'm just so scared for my niece. She has had anxiety for years and last year she told me she had self-harmed a few times. I hope she doesn't start that again now. I don't know why I'm starting this thread but I had to get this off my chest. I can't share this with anyone I know as I've promised I won't. I feel extremely protective over her and I am devastated this has happened to her

I'm medicated, how are you?

I'm sorry that happened to her.

 

A few years ago some stuff happened at work, to someone else, but it brought everything back for me.

 

It sounds like you guys have a good relationship. Maybe she'll feel like she can talk to you or at least let you be there for her. (Maybe it will help you too. I hope so.)

I'm so sorry to hear this ((hugs)). I don't know what to say. It's just horrible. I hope she will have support and feel safe enough to work through it.

Thanks everyone. It certainly does bring everything back to the front of my mind.

I've not spoken to my niece yet but my sister has told her to get I touch if she needs me. I hope she will of she wants to.

I'm medicated, how are you?
