Typical Reaction To ******

I was sexually abused by my father from the time I was 11 years old. At the age of 15 I was put in therapy for chronic debilitating illness. When I was 18 I reported my father’s crimes to my mother, to my therapist and to a policeman. My mother kicked me out of the house.

The therapist, who had misdiagnosed my Traumatic Stress Disorder as schizophrenia (even though I had never hallucinated) maintained that I was attracted to my father and had consequently imagined the abuse. The policeman was not interested in helping me.
I appealed to the city’s leading psychiatric institute to conduct lie detector tests on myself and my father, but the institute refused.

A psychiatrist advised my parents that my 'psychotic imaginings' must be treated with zero tolerance. According to every mental health professional involved in my case, I had imagined extensive abuses which were forced upon me as a matter of course over a period of years, yet every mental health professional involved in my case maintained that I had imagined them.

I am now 57 years old. My memories have not changed, and my accusations have not changed. I suffered level 10 pain from my father’s torture and from illness, and never received the slightest acknowledgement from any of the people I have mentioned here that my level 10 pain was real or was caused by anything real. I still suffer level 10 pain. The damage to my nervous system is permanent.
