I just read your story The Second Punishment. Yes, it truly is an epidemic in America, the denial of sexual abuse (and all other abuse).
I wrote my journey of dealing with the memories and telling my family on Medium last year. The story is called Liar if you’d like to read it.
It is heartbreaking to have all of my family abandon me for telling the truth. Maddening to be called a liar.
But I do think that as more of us step forward and tell our truth things will change.
