Tatiana says that she was sexually and physically abused by her father
for nearly two decades, starting when she was 6 years old. Her father, who she claims was “paranoid” and on drugs, “fed” her drugs so he could sexually assault her, which resulted in her becoming pregnant four times and giving birth to three of his children.TELL DR.

Tatiana, who says she was locked in their house surrounded by alarms and cameras, shares what happened the day she finally escaped 19 years of abuse – but nearly died in the process.

The now 38-year-old says she convinced her father to drive to the hospital to get checked out because he thought she was sticking a needle in his lung. She says in the parking lot, she tried to jump out of the car but wasn’t fast enough to escape without harm.
“He stabbed me twice in the chest, but I was still able to get out and run,” Tatiana recalls. “I don’t remember ever looking back.”
