Sm,

It is not unusual to be triggered by a book. Seeing yourself on paper can be very disconcerting. I wish you had someone to help you with this. I have a few ideas:
Google - "Abuse survivors" or "Courage to Survive" and your city or providence. You may find a support group in your area that is free or very low cost. You might also find an email buddy who can offer support in more personal way than Babble (not that we don't care and we can be very supportive.) There are also crisis lines that can be helpful.

I agree with pfinstegg. A therapist who knows what to do and how to help you is critical. The last thing you need is to be retraumatized in therapy by reliving the events in the wrong way. And there is a "wrong" way --

I'm hoping to get it together enough to post about this a little more. Until then, take good care of yourself. Let us know how you are doing.
