Hi Bill,

I, too, am a survivor of adult sexual abuse. I was 21 and on a long trip with a priest moving him from Minnesota to Louisianna. Two nights in a row he woke me up with his penis in my face to suck him off. He was my priest, confessor and friend. There was another college student in the next bed so everything was very quiet.

The effect on me was devestating. I saught help to no avail. I did not no what "gay" was at the time.

So triggers for me are authority figures, Sundays and church. I still deal with this after 39 years.

You have my support and encouragement.
