Ya man I told her. She hasn't said A word about it not even a sign of asking about it. I guess time will tell

it may be that she is respecting your boundaries and privacy - and waiting for you to take the lead. you may need to give her permission to talk about it - to ask questions, etc. it is unlikely that she doesn't want to know more. she may also even be afraid of what she might learn. it will probly be easier for you to follow up on it if not too much time goes by. so - you may want to think about what your next step might be.

Frustrated,

Your disclosure was very brave and a big step in healing. Don't be afraid by silence. It took my wife about a week to really say anything to me after reading my story. When we finally did talk, she confessed to taking a hammer to all of the Christmas decorations my mom had given her - her way of expressing herself for my moms failure to protect me.

Stay Strong,
Matt
