Is probably one of my worst fears. What would some symptoms be if I had repressed memories of sexual abuse?
It depends I guess on the person. I was sexually abused as a young boy by a man who was a relative. In my case I overcompensated by being with a lot of women over the years. I think it was my unconscious trying to prove that I am straight. Also I keep having a dream about another time when I was very young in the dream I might be 3 or 4 I am not sure but I have the same dream over and over.
Having nightmares, certain words or actions triggers a thought about it, daydreaming and your brain always finds a way to think about it, flashbacks often.
