Grace Part Seventeen.
Paul was due home from work at 10pm, I decided to ring my brother Louis, at 9pm he is a Mental Health Nurse . After a bit of chit chat I said, “There is a girl I work with who has recently got married, she has been told by her doctor that she has something called Vaginismus, is it possible you could sent me some info so I can pass it on to her?” Louis replied, “Yes, of course, it’s when the vagina has spasms, and sex is painful, it happens because of rape, stress and abuse.” He’d said only positive things nothing negative, that was very important to me, for there is always two types of People only, when it comes to this subject, for or against! I asked my brother, “Is there a possibility of a cure?” He replied, “Yes, with counselling they can get better.” That was a relief to hear and I said, “Thank you, when you leaflets arrive I will pass them onto my colleague.” We ended the call.
One minute later I thought, ring him back, there was a battle in my head, to phone him back or not to phone him back. Then I rang, him back and said, “Louis, you know that girl I told you about?” He said, “Yes,” I said, “It is me, I am that girl with Vaginismus, but I wanted to know if you would say any thing bad or good about it, and you only said good, I was abused as a child, I am not going to tell you who he is.....” But before I could say another word he said, “I know who it is, its Uncle Stan!!!!” Then I said, “Yes it’s him.” He said, I KNEW you hated him, but I didn’t know why!!” He was crying when he said those words. My hard, tough brother. He was SO angry! He said, “Does Mum know about this?!” I said, “Mum knows everything, but she wants me to be quiet, but it is affecting me and stressing me out.” Louis said, “That ends tonight!!!” He went on, “Mum is going to have a meeting tonight and Auntie too both families are going to know about Stan TONIGHT!” I told him, “I didn’t want trouble, or our Cousins to hate us.” Louis, said tearfully, “The truth needs to be told.” He said again, “I knew you hated him, I just didn’t know why, WHY didn’t you tell me when it was happening?” I replied, “I was a child, he said it was our little secret, he bought me gifts.....”
My heart was trembling, I was very nervous, knowing that nothing would ever be the same from tonight. When Paul came home I told him the whole conversation. He said, “About time!” I then just carried on fretting and thinking the worst, my Cousins wouldn’t believe me, would they hate me for saying bad things about their Dad.
My other Brothers were devastated! They adored Stan, they couldn’t believe it, my youngest brother, I heard later cried. I heard also later my Cousins too were in total shock! Stan’s favourite child, Matt, he was at work and unable to come to the meeting. When he was told what his Dad did, he refused to come to the home for a month!
SO, God did answer my Prayer, He sent me the Spokesperson to speak on my behalf, so every thing, was in the open.
