I am bill. I, too, was abused starting at age 4 and continuing through age 17. Thought it was all behind me, but it has come roaring back. At approximately - approx. because I can't recall the date, even though I could easily find out, I choose not too- the age of 50, it happened again. The details are irrelevant I suppose, but this single act of violence upon me has temporarily destroyed me. Rape. I am in total disbelief. Also in intensive therapy. I just wanted to say hi. And I want to hear from someone who may have been hurt in middle age, as I was. Angels.
For now we see through a glass, darkly.
