They all already know about the sexual abuse that "went-on" for seven long years. Same for the physical terror.
Ever since I disclosed about the SA and announced "I fully remember the PA" I have been shunned by my dwindling family.
This past Christmass Eve, I told my father that I'm aware of the isolation and do not appreciate it, and that its wearing my heart and soul down. They seem to be striving to rid themselves of a relationship that could have continued to be something other than all pain, all the time.
Is that an achievement? No. Its just sad.
My fault? How's this my fault? [Dean Vernon Wormer, 1978]
