FALLOUT: A Survivor Talks to Incest Offenders (And Others)

I am really surprised how true it is that so many people avoid the topic of incest.  My library seemed reluctant to help me set up a talk on my new book, and it’s been sold only to a VERY FEW. It’s sad because there are so many unreported incest offenders in our society, and it really does seem like people want to deny more than protect their children.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.

  2. One of my abusers was never reported, even though I told my family. It is scary to know that there are so many others out there, living their lives, without ever having to pay for what they did.

      I’m not sure what to say except have you dealt with this yourself? It seems one of your abusers was reported. The only way I know to deal with this is to keep it from happening to others through education, and it isn’t happening because people don’t want to think about the subject. I’m also unclear about ages involved, etc. Journaling helped me, and almost half of FALLOUT is my journal with drawings, poems, dreams, etc. I’m also in the process of developing a page on Journalling, also at nanmykel.com. This is the first time I’ve tried to Reply, so I may be messingv up. Thanks for writing. Nan Mykel

      • One was reported but never arrested or jailed (it was in the early 1980’s – times where different) and then the other I told my family about 7 years later and it was never reported and rather kept in the family. I truly feel like my family protected the abusers instead of the victim, me. I have dealt with most of it. It is one reason I want to share my story – so others know they are not alone.
