Hi Kahlee,

I was also abused by a family member and after over five years of therapy have barely talked about it. My T knows what happened and leaves it to me to want to talk about which I don't.

I don't think I will ever confront my abuser. I told my T that I don't think my family would believe me and would take his side. It happened over 40 years ago and I don't think confronting him at this late time would do any good for me emotionally. So I understand your not wanting to confront your abuser.

I completely understand your issues with intimacy, too. My husband makes comments on how long it's been since we've had sex and does not know about my childhood sexual abuse. He think I was bullied which is true, but it was much more than just threats and emotional abuse.

I don't think there is anything wrong with you, you are like me and have things from your past that get in the way of the present.

Poet
