This is an informative story, but there's another underreported story that needs to be addressed: the mini-epidemic of pediatricians and child psychiatrists who have been arrested or had their licenses revoked for molesting young boys.

-There is pediatrician Mel Levine, a Rhodes scholar and best selling author of "A Mind at a Time". Had his license revoked this year after more than 50 men came forward to say he molested them when they were his young patients.

- Also Dr. Scott and Dr. Mark Blankenburg, identical twin pediatricians arrested in March Ohio for 87 counts of child molestation.

- Child psychiatrist Dr. William Ayres, set to stand trial for molesting young boys sent to him for therapy, on June 1. Ayres co-wrote a paper on how to detect sexual abuse in kids.

- Don Rife- the Harvard and Yale trained child psychiatrist busted in Mass., Vermont and Florida for molesting young boys.

There are dozens and dozens of such cases from all over the country. Wish the media would report on this.

This was a trigger for me.

I was burned with cigarettes to cover for the screaming from penetration. That is the pain I remember most till this day.

Today I'm O.K.
One day at a time I make the journey.
