My Stream It's what I'm up to...

Why I believe my ex-wife was a childhood sexual abuse victim.

The book "A Door of Hope" lists 15 symptoms that indicate an adult woman was a victim of childhood sexual abuse victim. The author, a Masters Degree holding counselor specializing in the treatment of adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, writes immediately after the list she says any woman with at least 4 of the 15 IS a victim of childhood sexual abuse and if she does not remember it, it is because she has respressed  the memory of the traumatic event. Here are the symptoms my wife displayed.

* a controlling personality
* excessive jealousy
* anger without reason
* mistrust
* sexually cutting off a spouse without telling them
* obesity
* expecting perfection in the spouse
* extremely negative response to certain scents

Additionally my former mother-in-law told me that on my wife's last visit to her father's house she returned in tears and begging never to be sent back. It was the opinion of the counselors I had in prison that he had raped her on that visit.
