I don't know about you, but my anxiety tells me (metaphorically, but very real-like) that I will die if I take a chance.

Holy everlasting fuck do I relate to this.

I just had a session with my therapist where I spent the last fifteen minutes asking her if I'm crazy. If this is a real thing that happens to actual people. Can a person really reach middle-age and start to discover CSA is part of their history? Because I think it's happening to me.

I'm probably going to start a whole new thread based on my own experiences but I just had to reply hear too. It's been a while since your initial posting. But if you're still reading this...I feel this so much. Thank you so much for posting and I'm grateful I got to see it today. I hope that things have gotten clearer for you, if not better.

Take care

Hi there. I'll tell you that it doesn't ever feel like you have enough information. Even though I'm pretty sure I know the extent of the acts i still wonder. Ny gf is finally talking about something her dad did and she's terrified that more will surface. It either will or it wont, but the most important thing is that we keep talking about it. That we keep being honest with iurselvesand honor our feelings.

The truth is we may never know the extent of the abuse. What we can do is listen to our bodies, name our feelings, and protect ourselves from people who've hurt us.

Much love. This shit ain't easy
