I don't subscribe to the idea that you were "born" to be disposable. I believe you were used by two very sick people who were your parents. The pedophile who abused you was enabled by the doctor and your mother. They knew, yet both choose to allow it to go on, making them just as responsible for the abuse as the abuser. And for your mother to choose the way she did speaks volumes of her disturbing state of mind. Pedophiles don't stop abusing until they are made to stop. In all likelihood it stopped for you because his disgusting "tastes" were for younger males. Chances are, he abused others. And now you're stuck in the same mind-set that you were as a child. These criminals were cowards, Mike. The enablers for not reporting and putting an end to the abuse, the abuser himself for taking advantage of the youth and vulnerabilities of a powerless boy. They can't hurt you any longer. It's your thoughts that are now hurting you, Mike. You broke the cycle of abuse with your own children. You can choose to break the cycle with your Self by changing your thoughts. Re-frame what happened to you. Recognize that the power you gained was in ensuring that your own children were kept safe from harm. In other words, you are so much stronger than you know; and that strength, taken in the right direction, will bring healing into your life. You can't change the past, but you CAN change how you perceive it. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Mike, maybe you were born to bring two wonderful kids into the world whom you've been successful at protecting.

I can't take away the hurt but I so wish I could. You obviously have made strides in helping yourself, please never stop. Healing, I think is like learning - we never stop. Just know that you are worth it, healing is something we all deserve. Never stop striving for it.

Just wanted to fix a typo.

You said "children" and in my brain I thought of two, but it could be more. I just wanted to fix my error.
