Dear Therapist: Is It Possible to Apologize for a Sexual Assault?
The Atlantic

In many ways i was so emotionally frozen by my early childhood abuse that the stuff that came later on just added to the mess that was me inside- and i struggled for best part of 50 years until i had a total complete breakdown, which took 6 years to work through itself, but glad it all happened now, and in a fantastically happy marriage with wonderful man and enjoying security and fulfillment in older life — dominated about all my life though until about 6 yrs ago, now in 7 th decade so lost a lot — BUT somehow i feel that i have gained a lot too now — if i had to go through all that to get where i am right now i am grateful — but wouldn’t wish it on anyone
