Hi everyone. I am 57 and did not even acknowledge that what was done to me when I was younger was a problem until recently. I am again starting counseling, this time finally with some clue about where my lack of self esteem and recurrent depression began. Thanks for this forum. I am hoping not only to share my story, but also to perhaps help those of you who are much younger to not let these painful experiences impact your quality of life. Or your ability to have meaningful relationships.
