1. How did your partner tell you of his CSA?
He answered questions I asked as he was in/coming out of a nightmare. This took place early in the second year of our relationship.
2. Did you suspect something was wrong?
Sort of. In the first year we knew each other, he had a couple of episodes where he withdrew although we were in the same room, if you know what I mean [Of course you do. (((Hugs))) ] He was almost unreachable. The only thing that broke through was hugging him despite his telling me I shouldn't love or care about him. That was strong indication that something was going on.
3. Did he immediately start a program of recovery?
