I was sexually abused from the age of 6 till I was 8 years of age by a family friend. That horrible experience has been something I have kept a secret from my family and friends. I'm 24 years old now and all of the memories of the abuse I can't seem to block out as I did as a child. I suffer from depression and anxiety and I have a lot of issues. I seem as if I'm am disconnected to the world. I feel as a part of me has died and I can't truly be happy I can't truly trust people and I can't truly forgive people.

I'm 50years old and you just nailed what I am feeling everyday, hopefully I can get past it.... welcome
