My therapist has had an awfully hard time believing I wasn't sexually abused. But I wasn't.

Which leads me to believe that there may be a cluster of symptoms that a person frequently gets because they've been sexually abused, but that they sometimes get without being sexually abused. And I would suspect that some people who are sexualy abused develop a different cluster of symptoms altogether.

My own thought is that clusters of symptoms might raise red flags for therapists as to areas they should explore, but they shouldn't lead them to conclude that their suspicions are correct or to try to convince their clients that their symptoms are proof of certainl life experiences.
