    I was molested repeatedly through the ages of 7-9. My testimony, along with two other boys near my age, helped put the bastard behind bars for 25 years.

    I have struggled with this ever since, and when I went to a survivor's group the message was basically one of acceptance and endurance, not much mention of getting over it or being "cured".

    I honestly don't believe this will ever go away. It altered my sexuality in a way I cannot mention here, and it has profoundly affected my life. The worst part of it all is that the trauma is like a living thing. I can feel it inside me even when it's not really bothering me, and it will always be there. That's the worst part, it will never leave me alone for good.

    Sorry about the experience you had. I am going to suggest something. Maybe you won't like it. If you want a complete cure, you should forgive that person's act. I know this will be very hard. But if you can completely forgive him, you will have peace in your heart. As long as you don't forgive him, you will have great anger and pain in your heart, that will not go away.
