Hi TherapyGirl,

I agree with your therapist that sometimes a person who has been sexually abused will not recall it untl they are ready.

I also agree with other posters someone may have all the signs of having been abused and they weren't.

My T asked me early in therapy if I had been sexually abused. I denied it. It took me 2 1/2 years to tell her that I had been. I am not willing to explore it and she promised to never bring it up unless I do.

Leave the door open on reexploring what may or may not have happened to you. When you are ready, you will know it. Your T sounds wonderful in that she has never pushed you to talk about what she still suspects. No wonder you've stayed with her for so many years.

Glad you found babble.
