I think that when a person is sexually abused they are on of two types. Type 1 is a sex addict. One who feels like they need sex to make themselves feel worthy. They assaociate any type of touch to sexual feelings. This may also involve alot of porn and masturbation. Type 2 are the ones who feel repulsed by sex because it triggers them to the abuse they suffered. I think this type may even feel that seclusion is there any way to feel safe.
yep - i agree.
that has been the story of my life - alternating betweeen the extremes.
secretly - type 1.
publicly - with other people - type 2.
really screwed up - either way.
no "happy medium" or "normal."
"the scariest thing about abuse of any shape or form, is, in my opinion, not the abuse itself, but that if it continues it can begin to feel commonplace and eventually acceptable."
