I am a male survivor of early childhood sexual abuse at the hands of a family member (my father). I have only recently understood this because I repressed the memories. I had been suffering from severe depression for years, and only last year was financially able to get professional help. I started having more frequent flashbacks starting last year, as I believe my son is the age that I was when the assaults began (roughly 3-4). I am near the beginning of a long journey, and I need all the help I can get.
