OK, I have read and read this site. I also know the majority of this site is women. I KNOW I cannot be the only woman on this site to have this happen as the stats scream otherwise. The last few pages outline my siuation on this in my diary. But IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW you got there if this contributes... This is a very real contributor and you should address it to heal. I am having to now. I did not know this had an effect, but it does. And read the document Anthony added to my diary... Not many years ago this DID fall under critera for a cause of PTSD. It is not recognized now but is called PASS and PAS. Hons, y'all are going to have to air this out too to heal. It hurts and is emabarrassing, but not one spot in my diary is not. But as women you need to open up and work through it. If you want to heal it has to be addressed. I just know how tore I am about it and know I can't be alone... I went first. Y'all in that situation can follow.
