Hi Antigua,

I also was sexually abused as a child and have PTSD. I have been in therapy for years and years but with 6 different therapists due mostly to insurance issues and an overseas move.

I have many little girls inside, each carrying different feelings. I do not have multiple personality disorder but I have very strong voices inside from different ages and with different kinds of feelings. I understand your shock at discovering a voice that you didn't know was there.

I definitely have a self-hating voice. This voice internalized the messages that I got from my abusers, which even if they weren't direct, still "told" me that I must be horrible and hateful and bad if I am being abused because why else would they abuse me?

I have done limited EMDR with my current therapist and it has been very helpful so I intend to do more.

Good luck and please know that you are not alone and that what you are experiencing is "normal" for survivors of sexual abuse.

LG
