Wow, you guys are all so brave to go back to the places where you were abused. Even to go to the same town has to take a lot of courage because I know for me, there is this innate drive to run away from anything that even reminds me of Baltimore. I can't even watch an Orioles or a Ravens game on TV.

I don't have to go back to the exact place I was assaulted. The dr's office is not in the same exact building of the hospital but it is close enough. I kind of want to see our old apartment building and the college my wife & I attended together. I sort of want to go to the school where I used to teach and say hi to some of the other faculty, but I know I'm not the same person. I don't even recognize the man I see in the mirror every day.
