I really wish I knew the answer to your question. It sounds so like what I am struggling with. I once asked my T, almost in tears, "Why won't this go away?" He answered immediately in the most gentle voice, "You have to be ready to let it go." I think that was the perfect answer. I also think it might have something to do with what you're experiencing. Maybe you can't put the anger behind you because you haven't allowed yourself to feel the anger enough yet. Maybe you aren't ready to put it behind you. Or maybe you are and I'm way off base here. But for me, at least, I feel like once I have felt the feelings about my abuse enough, it will hopefully become a nonissue. I won't have to ask, "Why won't it go away?" because it will simply be gone. I will have done what I need to do and be over it. But I think it's probably different for every single person who has ever been abused what it is you need to do. So good luck, and I wish I had a better answer. It's really hard, though, isn't it?
