tbkkfile, Agree with all above advice. Your T will be a great resource on which to test the waters with new revelations. Hopefully over time you will feel safe enough to tell him/her your full story. But it is your story, as all of the good men here

Such a dramatic shock and tragedy. I grew up in a home that lost two of my sisters. One was a sudden accident (34yo), and the other, an aggressive 12-hour virus (3yo) and medical malpractice. Neither were a deliberate crime like your situation. I c

WS thank you. I think the hardest for me was realizing and accepting Dad and I had shared a common pain from our sexual abuse as children. I never let him into my life to share. I felt such guilt and shame how I treated him now knowing he suffered

iaccus, I only ever disclosed my abuse to one family member. It was my sister, and I told her over the phone that my brother had abused me when I was 11 y/o. I don't know why I told her, it just came out of the blue. Her response was to tell me that

Blaine It's reassuring that all you have endured from someone that was supposed to protect not only you but everyone and you are healing. Its helps know there is a point where we might feel normal whatever normal is. I glad you are here to show so
