Be gentle with yourself - dealing with abuse can be difficult and painful at times as we sort out our lives and what happened to us and our feelings from then and today.
The best advice I received was from author and T Mic Hunter who helped me deal with stuff in my life Today-as it may relate to the abuse - instead of diving headfirst into the pool of abuse memories and experiences.
I'm sorry for the tough things you have been thru- I hope you can be gentle and healing to yourself on this path of recovery. Another hope is that you can shed the shame and feelings of being dirty and leave them with those who forced them on you and reclaim healthy intimacy and trust in yourself.
