    Thanks to both of you. This isn't something we can ignore, or we are as bad as those who victimized us.

    Yep...and women can be just as bad at abuse as men. Just ask the cops about some of the cases they see.

    We know just what you mean, Yazza. Unfortunately, don't have to ask the cops.

    they are... but you know something that annoys me... it's when people seem to think that just because the abuse is not physical but emotional that it's not abuse. Emotional abuse can be just as bad if not worse then physical or sexual abuse.. It is a personal pet peeve of mine.

    But that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the opportunity. Or the friendship. to you all.
    I haven't read each and every post yet. I just want to say that I was abused sexually by a very close family member for probably 4 or 5 years. Until I moved away at the start of the 4th grade.
    I always had problems getting close to boys, and then men.
    My first husband wasn't supportive at all, he even went so far as to say that I made up how it effected me. He never understood when I wasn't able to have sex.
    My new husband is totally the opposite. He loves me and knows that I love him and also knows that how much sex I give out, does not equal my love for him.
    He is more concerned with quality rather than quanity.
    He also had problems growing up. Several strange things happend to him.

    So it depends upon your partner as to how you heal and deal with the issues that stem from sexual abuse and rape.

    You're so right!!
    I suffered mental abuse from my ex for 3 years while i was with him,and 2 years since we split up,he has totally destroyed my self esteem,my confidence,trust and whole outlook on life.
    It's hard work getting it back.
    May there be a miracle in your life today & may you have the eyes to see it.

    But we're all with you, Earthy. You've been a great friend, and I'm so glad you've opened up.
