dgoods raises a great point. As survivors we often find it difficult to ask for what we need. That's because we learned a lot of false lessons as boys - we came to think that our needs and fears didn't matter, and that asking for what we need will just get us rejected and lead to even more hurt.
But that was always a false idea and it still is. Whatever you want to ask about here, just let it fly. Then try to do the same in your everyday life as well. That will really help you.
On your specific question here you already have some good advice. I would just add that in your phone book you will probably find a child abuse hotline you can call. They won't mind if you call them as an adult, and they will probably have other numbers they can direct you to for information about the possibilities open to you in your state and local area.
Nobody living can ever stop me

Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me. (Woody Guthrie)
