This sounds a lot like the 12th step of AA, bringing the possibility of sobriety to those alcoholics who are still drinking. Bringing the news that healing is possible to those survivors of CSA not only helps them but also is therapeutic to the brin

After waking up recently hearing my perpetrator's voice in my room saying again "See, you like it" because of my physical reaction, (he has been dead for more than a decade), I understand how guilt and shame burst strongly on us as we begin

Hi smc1972, I agree with Dave, this is not a stupid post. I think you'll find, as I have, that the more I talk about and the more I write about the abuse, the less power it has to bring on the shame and guilt. It isn't gone, but it's so much less
