Hi GoHomeAgain. I would have to say that you can't put a price on it but good luck getting some kind of compensation if that is a possibility for you. It always does my heart good to hear of a CSA survivor getting some kind of compensation for the abuse they suffered, even if no amount of money could ever truly compensate for what happened.
I work hard at healing, but this journey will always leave me with a "limp."
You know, I've used that same analogy on the board before. In a way, the events of my childhood did to my sexuality what a car crash that leaves someone with a permanent limp does to their body. The person who was in the car crash can have physical therapy to make the limp a little better and can adapt and adjust to the limp and try to live the best life they can in spite of it but the limp will always be there and will affect the way they walk until the day they die. They will always be physical broken to a degree, just like I will always be sexually and emotionally broken to a degree. (A pretty high degree.)
Anyway, I think you may be the only other person I've seen use a "limp" analogy and it struck a chord with me so I felt I had to point it out.
How do you answer the question "when will you be healed?" without sarcasm?
Never. Never answer that question or any question like it without using extreme, abrasive, dismissive, cutting sarcasm. Questions like that are the reason sarcasm exists.
Good luck with your case. I hope you will let us know what happens. Take care. Peace,
