My grandad has made sexual passes at me on several occasions. I kept the “incidents” a secret for a while but my suppressed emotions started to have an affect on me so I told my mother. Big mistake! The story came back to me. Instead of being sympathetic, surprisingly my family made it out like it was my fault and told me I need to cover up more! My grandad is 75, so its possible he has dementia but he has not been diagnosed.
I feel like my family has taken the wrong approach to the situation. He should be tested or admitted to a home, he could do the same thing to other visitors. What would they do then?
Bella, how do I convince my family to get my grandad tested? Having shared my feelings, I still feel suppressed. I am a grown woman, my opinion should matter.
