At least there is no shame here.... only courage and openness! Feels refreshing!

Hi Jay. I hope you are well.

Your case and mine have a lot of similarities. While my mother also engaged in emotional incest with me, in addition she sexually molested me for years beginning when I was about 12. I always wanted to be close to my father but his job kept him traveling, sometimes three weeks out of four. But we became closer as I grew older.

I was also raped when I was eight or nine by a teenaged male babysitter. That is something I'll never forget.

Just wanted you to know that you are not alone. Mike

Mike:

Thanks for your thoughts. Because of this website and guys like you I know I'm not alone and this knowledge is a source of great comfort. You are not alone either.

After belonging to this community for a while and applying what I learned to my life, I am really surprised at the heavy consequences that one incident of childhood sexual abuse can have in one's life. Before I discovered this site my attitude was to not give it importance because "what effect could one incident have on my life". But now I can see how it hijacked the normal development of my sexuality and caused lifelong sexual confusion and lots of distress in my life.

Fortunately, I have been blessed with a very supportive wife, and a 35 year marriage, that is a source of consolation and peace. I guess it somewhat compensates for all the angst the c.s.a. has produced in my life.
