(21F) Finally accepted this week in therapy that my parents sexually molested me as a child. (reddit.com)
I haven’t told anyone. I haven’t even told my fiancé. I felt like posting here and getting it off my chest might help. I started going to therapy once a week a little over a month ago because I struggle with anxiety and in therapy I’ve been struggling to accept the reality of all that happened while I was growing up. I thought I would be just learning ways to handle stress better in therapy but I ended up digging up so much from my past and it’s been so painful. Didn’t even say the words “sexually molested” until my last therapy appointment this past Monday and now that I’ve heard those words my whole perception of myself and everything around me feels so different and terrible. I’m in so much pain. I’m shaking so much just writing this. My parents sometimes ask me to watch their dog for them when they go out of town and I did that yesterday. Seeing them and seeing all the pictures in their house on their walls of me throughout my childhood was so difficult. I’m so uncertain of so many things. I feel like I’m collapsing in on myself. My therapist said with time it’ll all get better. I know I need to process all of this but it’s so so difficult and painful. submitted by /u/throwawaypancake3 [link] [comments]
