And even though my husband was and is nothing like either of my abusers, somehow I ended up punishing him for the original pain that did not afflict upon me.The memories kept poisoning my mind and our love-making experiences.
This is true whether you were a young child or an older one when you were originally victimized.I pleaded with God to either help me stop the nightmares and flashbacks I was experiencing or help me to die. God spoke to me in a way that made Himself real to me.I couldn’t just put it on a “shelf” away from the forefront of my mind and count on it staying there any longer.Eventually memories came out to haunt me when I least expected it —especially during intimate times with my husband.And if you’re experiencing this as well, I plead with you to please reach out for the help you need.
It’s important to properly deal with all that happened to you.

Our emotions are so intense when we are young that our wounds and injuries often stay with us for a lifetime.
The pain is immeasurably worse when the one who wronged us was a parent or a parent surrogate.
My past would then be “my past.” But again I was wrong.
