Healing takes time; your on your way !
by: Mac

Shannen; I suffer PTSD from the abuse I endured also. One of the many things that have helped me in recovery is EMDR thereapy; u might want to check into it. It really helps those with PTSD take those emotional triggers/events, & switch them to a non-emotion area of our brains, & helps us to deal with/process things without staying stuck in being hypervigelint, dissocative,etc. Proud of you for sharing your story, & that you're finding your way onto the path of freedom, health & happiness. Keep us posted. Be easy on yourself druing the process. Just remember you're not alone.

You are going to be strong
by: Eileen Howard Fralick

You are so strong, you will be taken off those anti=depressants, you will feel good again, because you had the strength to tell your abuse to the right people. He is being watched, he is being watched by his own wife, just because they don't admit he did this horrible thing, doesn't mean they don't believe you, they are just to ashamed to be able to live with the truth. But because of your strength, to tell, they are all going to know if he does this again, and he will get caught, but only because you put the truth in everyone's minds, he is being watched, you have done all the girls in his reach a great act of kindness, he won't get away with it next time. You have made his name bad news, as it should be. Don't think his wife isn't treating him different, she is. My mother never said she believed my father molested me while he was alive, but she never slept with him again. Later I begged for an explanation, as to why she couldn't admit the truth until my older sister finally came forward with me, she said her mind just couldn't accept that she had allowed this to happen to her children, and your aunt is in the same state of denial, afraid of being blamed, my mother was sorry, but it sure didn't help much. But it helped 35 years later. You have already started your recovery and thankyou for being so much braver than I was. You have made the right decision to make sure he is suspect and that will make him think twice before he hurts another, and if he does he will be caught as the next girl will be believed and you will too. Let us pray that what you have done has stopped him, I am proud to know your story Thankyou for your strength. Eileen Howard Fralick
