dear northernflicker,
i am fairly new to this site, since my husband only suspects that he was abused and has just begun EMDR to approach it. as strange as it may seem, i enjoy reading your posts because they bring me peace. there seems to be so much peace, actual peace, in honesty. thank you for being so honest and thank you for sharing. the road ahead may not be easy and may be painful, but it's reassuring to know that it doesn't have to be isolated.
