very good step to start dealing with it all NOW. many of us wish we had done that years ago. but not having buried or suppressed the memories - as you say - that's a very good thing. gives you a huge head start.
hoping we can all share in your healing,
We are often troubled, but not crushed;
sometimes in doubt, but never in despair;
there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend;
and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.
- Paul, II Cor 4:8-9
