Our expert says:
I think you'll find that many people who have ben abused as a child, sexually, physically, or psychologically, have not told others. Sometimes because their abuser wickedly persuaded them it was all their fault and that they should be ashamed of what was done to them ; sometimes because they have been threatened with awful consequences if they speak about it ; sometimes because they fear they won't be believed ; sometimes because when they try to tell someone they actually are not believed.
It can be a great relief to reeal such facts to a properly trained psychologist in therapy, and recognize that none of this was your own fault. And to get help to move beyond it
Contrary to the myth spread by some popular but ill-informed books, almsot everyone who has been abused, like others who have been traumatized, DO remember what happend ( indeed they may suffer from such memories ) and they do not "repress" and forget it. They may successfully try to avoid remembering it, because its unpleasant to do so, but that's different.
