CdnDW, you're right on target about my older boy. He cries out "How could you make me do that? I was just a little kid" when he paces the house cursing & begging his abuser to stop as if he's here now. He has said to me, "but I'm his big brother--I was supposed to protect him." At 21 his mental illness in itself isolates him enough from the world & it's going to be tough getting him to talk to someone. I've told the psychiatrists & am encouraging him, but he says he doesn't want to remember so he's not going to talk.
