okay so how do you know if you were sexually or emotionally abused? i mean at my house some of the things my dad did wasnt overly sexual but when i jokingly told people about it they seemed freaked out. To me it was a normal everyday thing. Both of my parents were very protective and very manipulative, does that even count or am i just over exaggerating and feeling down? i never really considered any of this until now and now i'm kinda freaked out. i guess i just dont understand what is considered normal behavior and what isnt.
