"HOW CAN I GET OVER MY MEMORIES OF SEXUAL ABUSE?"
After years of
physical (from my father as well) and sexual abuse
from my husband, he died in 2011. I thought I was free at
the age of 65, but I have now found that I cannot
form any relationship with a man, I freeze if
touched, suffer flashbacks and night terrors.
I have met a lovely
man who is kind, gentle, loving, everything I have
always wanted and we get on like a house on fire
until he touches me. That triggers shaking, dry
mouth, crying and disconnection and I know the only
way he could make love to me is by force which of
course he refuses to do, how on earth can I rectify
the situation I so want to experience real love?
