i was molested from the time i was 4 until i was 17 by my stepfather, intercourse didnt start until i was 14. this has had a dramatic outcome on my life. my mother sided with my stepfather when i finally took him to court so i havent talked to her or any of my family since i was 17. im 26 now and i just had my son four months ago. when they took me from my stepfather i went to live in foster homes. i lved in 3 over the course of a year. in my first foster home my foster dad tried to touch me, in the third one i was raped. i try to get over these things but its had such an impact im kind of scared that i might have some mental disorders because of the trauma ive endured. i did go to counselling when i was 17 but it didnt help. these problems pose a threat in keeping a job and living day to day life im just curious to see if i might be eligible for ssi disability. i tried to look up if i could sue for restitution but im not sure if i can. i dont know how to get over all the things ive been through its really starting to get had for me. and for right now my main goal in life is to be able to take care of my son he is my life, im not sure what to do..
