Hi LM,

I can relate to quite a bit of what you were saying above, particularly the self-esteem issues, being teased, etc. Being a kid was tough enough by itself, let alone with all the CSA crap on top of that, too. It sounds like from the above, though, that you've really been making some good progress through things, I'm glad to hear it.

You hit the nail on the head for me in regards to a lot of what you said, and sum it up with "All I wanted was just to be accepted by others."

I have lots of issues there that I don't need to go into now, but for certain my self-esteem was tore to pieces before any sexual violation happened. But that just completely sealed the deal, and after that I was gone.

I relate to your posts a lot because I grew up in the same area as you talk about (I think you mentioned once the town you live in in WI; I grew up in the St. Paul area). Anyway, I hope you are doing alright, and even though you are a bit down, maybe there is some positive in feeling all the emotions you are going through (as long of course it doesn't drag you too far down).
