I do not not know what is best for your situation but I can share why. I was sexually abused by a doctor. I had told my mother and she literally asked me “should I stop going to him.” Blew my fucking mind!!!!! That she even had to fucking ask. Wow !! Teal is on point about telling fucking dysfunction families- so much more on that.
I struggled so much with what to do with the abuse that happened. I had a close friend of mine say I should report him. I was fucking terrified for a lot of reasons.
I ended up reporting him for this specific reason, “if he was going to do that to me a 20+ year old adult, what would he do to someone who literally couldn’t defend herself. And then I thought of my sister. If my mother was literally going to question if she should stop seeing that doctor, it is entirely possible that my sister would be exposed to him. I had to protect her the only way I could. I reported him.”
i trust you you will make the right decision. I am not you and I will never know your situation completely, but that is what happened with me.
