It's not at all unusual to repress the worst of our memories. Nor is it unusual to have those memories flood back later on in life. As we move through the various ages and stages of our lives, triggers are bound to happen. But these triggers are an opportunity. An opportunity for healing to begin, sometimes for deeper healing. I commend and applaud that you are willing to bring your feelings and emotions to the surface and deal with them. But don't stay there. Find ways to uplift your Self. I can completely understand how draining it can be to write even just a part of your story...it raises to the surface all the emotions, as though you're experiencing the abuse all over again. Just remind your Self that you're not experiencing it now. That you are safe. That you are now the one who has the power. No longer can that power be taken from you. You're special, Lynn. Special in ways that you cannot even begin to imagine. Sharing here will make a difference in someone's life. But mostly, it'll make a difference in yours, IF you choose for that to be. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

hi lynn - I just wanted to comment on the enema stuff. I too was abused w/enemas. I haven't seen very many people on this site, nor in general online, with this type of abuse in their background, so I just want to reach out a hand in support of u and all u went thru. I understand in a way not every abuse survivor can. this type of abuse reaches all the way down to a child's soul and attempts to destroy it in an utterly evil way. please, if and when u ever feel bad about YOURSELF in any way, remember what terrible, "cruel and unusual" abuse was done TO u, and know that whatever it is ur feeling bad about yourself about at that moment, it probably comes in large part from being so evilly subjugated, and by your own mother, yet, so early in life. you and i both probably don't even know how it would feel to not feel degraded and bad from such an early age - it would probably feel great to us just to feel like a non-enema-abused person, as other people take 4 granted walking around as.

I wish u love, healing, and the peace of God at this special time of year, and always. May your journey of healing move forward easily and quickly, starting right now, for the rest of your life, and every possible blessing come your way. Just to have survived all that you wrote about strikes me viscerally as u being a very strong person, deep down at your core where it matters most. I'm about 10 yrs. younger than u, a woman also, if that helps u 2 think of who's posting this 4u.

Hi Lynn
Boy do I understand what you wrote. I am 60. And I don't want to go into my old age thinking about sexualized childhood... but it happens. I go to Alanon to help me accept the things I cannot change... the Serenity prayer means the world to me...
I too became a nurse. But I made so many mistakes that I just gave up nursing and went backt o school for an art degree.
I just wanted to say I get what you went through. I was sexualized very young and lived with my abuser after my Mother died.
Trying to make a life with that kind of experience is hard.
Please know you are not alone.
You are loved NOW adn that is all that matters.
God bless you. It helped me read what you are experiencing even at age 68!!!
I get it.
Blessings.
Emily
