So sorry for your pain. The first person to assault me was like a brother. I was 4 and he was 14. And my actual brother would sit there and just allow it to happen. It is so hard to understand and contemplate why someone who is suppose to be looking out for you ends up being the one that is the most scary.You have already made the first step by getting help.

Welcome to AS!
Very sorry to hear about what happened to you. Glad that you are working with a psychologist. Please know that you are not alone. The horrible images that are playing in your head are called flashbacks. You are remembering, and it sounds like you have started the healing process. I understand the lost feeling. I have felt that way many, many times. It's probably very common amongst survivors. You said you're not sure what you're supposed to feel...you are feeling! (Feeling lost) Know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I have heard many times the say, "the only way out is through".
All the best to you on your healing journey,
