Hi oneuponatime. I'm finally dealing with my abuse 40 years later. (I'm 52) I know how you feel on the time issue. And the only reason I am dealing with this is because it is causing more problems than ever before. It can't be ignored. The last 2 years have been very painful for me and I know the short and medium term future will be no joy. But I am very possitive for the longer term.
While it would have been better to have this dealt with much earlier don't think that dealing with it now is impossible or a waste of time. It's going to be hard work but but it's worth doing.
