 My name is Linda and I am 42 and I have been married 18 years and he has 3 kids, I have one(that he adopted)and together we have 2 from 28-14, along with 6 grandbabies. I have started feeling blah and sad and anxious for awhile now, not sure why or when it started, but just that it is here. I have hidden it from hubby until Friday where I told him all I was feeling, including I was molested when I was young. I never thought I would ever say that to anyone. Anyways I have always relived the molestation of what was said and how I felt, I was young 7ish and I know some of the things I have blocked it is probably a good thing and I don't know how long it lasted or how many times. I was very confused and very shy child after that. I do remember another time when I was older a old man was petting me and touching me and dad said if he touched me one more time he was going to brake his arm and we left the house. After that life happened and I was doing the wife and mother thing and jobs and forgot about it, until now. Not sure why now all of a sudden. So here I am. Thanks for listening.

Hi Linda and welcome to the group. I am sorry for what you are going through. I was sexually abused as  a child too. Have only told a couple people. My therapist for one. Never to any of my family. That is good you told your husband. I never had a  relationship or even dated much.(I am 54) You need to work through this. It's something you buried but is haunting you. I know it is hard to talk about it.  I think once you see someone it will help. There are also support group. This is a great group and we are here for you. If you want to talk, send me a message and I will answer. Take care. Sending hugs.

Welcome Linda. Im sorry you are going through this. It is hard to accept when things like this hit you out of the blue. I agree, that it may be wise to find a therapist to work with. You are not alone in your feelings. I hope you can find support here. Hugs.

First welcome to the group. If you aren't seeing a therapist or councler I would try and see one just to talk about things. I was just diagnosed a few weeks ago with everything else from molsetation that I had tried to block for so many years. Also try to get in to see your gyn. I had to at that age because we start the fun cycle of menapause. I know that sounds young to be starting but it isn't i found out.
