Welcome to the board.
I was sexually abused for about
4 yrs as a child. I still have nightmares,I still have flashbacks,and am dealing with it daily.
I have a song that I listen to when the "revenge" hits me..it is aerosmith-Janies got a gun. I love that song.
I read the obits everyday from his hometown waiting on the day that I finally see his name in print. I dream of going to the funeral and finally coming to peace that he is not going to hurt anyone else.
Due to my abuse I was very overprotective of my children. I had the "talk" several times with my daughter,telling her not to trust any man,not even her own father. Telling her that no matter what they say,I will protect her. She is now almost 20,just has her first boyfriend and will not let him go any farther than kissing. I know that is my fault. I blame myself. But,she has never been hurt.
I am so sorry about
what happened to your daughter. That is a mother's worse nightmare..let alone a mother that has been there.
I wish you all of the luck in the world for yourself and for helping her.
Whatever you do,don't be like us where we don't talk about
it for years. As you know that is not healthy at all.
