Bryan, I understand a lot of what you are talking about. My mother wasn't around much but when she was she frequently exaggerating or pretended illness. I have always and still do have a low tolerance for anyone who exaggerates when they are sick. I also attended a 12 step sexual survivors group twice and couldn't tolerate the poor me attitudes that prevailed. It sounded as if they were completely content in remaining victims. :-(
I still have tremendous compassion for CSA victims and will respond to any genuine call for help. Even if it is exaggerated I will offer help with the idea of getting past the superficial part and to the real issue. I know that my judgments are clouded by my own CSA and I don't want to take the chance of denying someone who is in need of help but doesn't know how to show it in genuine terms.

Dan

Andy,

It is not a short time program to recover. You will learn more and be more confident in your believes with time, and with help. You will succeed.

Alexey
