dear anonymous, to answer your question yes i have experienced sexual abuse, by members of both genders...and also i know that many other "experts" in this category have also; what concerns me is if you have experienced sexual abuse. if you are saying no.. wait until i answer your last question.. it is absolutely possible to be raped by a spouse. if sex is unwanted and not consensual.. that is rape, and RAPE IS A CRIME. the fact that you have come to this website shows me that you are looking for help, and that is the first step.. i hope that you will believe me enough to know that you did not deserve this.. there are many people here that are MORE THAN WILLING to help(including myself). The first step is admitting that a crime occurred. The second is realizing that IT WASNT YOUR FAULT. And the third is to ask for help.. :0) sherbie PS please dont give up.. you've come this far.. if you would like to talk with a professional, i know someone who is very compassionate and understanding. even if you are not ready to press charges, or leave.. you deserve to be listened to.. and we are here for you.. PPS please dont stop talking.. if not to me, find someone you feel comfortable with.. take care... :0)
