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.
