I know what happened to me could of been a lot worse but I just don't know if I have the right to be upset and still be affected by it.

Thank you for your kind words :)

You DO have a right to be upset.

I still have memories of CSA that happened over 50 years ago.

Rape, or any other kind of sexual abuse is NEVER the victims fault.

Please DO NOT blame yourself about what happened.

The key to your healing and recovery is to remember that the abuse happened in the PAST.

You need to concentrate on the Present and Future :)

Your healing will probably take some time before you recover completely.

Be Strong.

You CAN and WILL Recover. :)

If you have not already done so, I would recommend that you try and find a therapist to help you with your recovery and healing.
