Question Why can't I get over this?

When I was a kid I was abused by a family member (forced to do sexual things) . This went on for about 5 years. Now that I am older he has apologized. Shouldn't this be closure for me? I can't get close to men, I have no sex drive and no morals for myself. I'm in therapy and have been for years. No progress has been made. I'm just frustrated and confused....was this abuse or am I just crazy? because I'm starting to think I'm just crazy...

Re: Why can't I get over this?

It sounds like you need to switch counselors also. If you aren't seeing any progress, find another person that you can relate to.. I know because it happened to me as a 14 year old on my way to choir. He got 40

chin up..

I actually just switched therapists. I see a substance abuse therapist now. He's not very helpful tho =/ he is very passive and my other therapist was aggressive. This crap is so confusing
