Default Did? - Sexual Abuse caused Mental Issues

I was just wondering.... from my present resonation of emotions & anger brought on by a scene in a movie that I recently saw:
Just how many of us here on PC are having mental struggles with in our own self and life due to the sexual abuse we suffered at the hands of another selfish adult / person.

Thanks....
LoVe,

Default Re: Did? - Sexual Abuse caused Mental Issues

I didnt vote cause I wanted to select yes to both. I think sometimes the effects of sexual abuse is compounded when there are other types of abuse and neglect, events going on. So yes, my mental problems origionated from both.

agree with EV. personally these choices aren't broad enough to encompass current thinking on trauma based models of MH....nature/nuture........both have roles depending upon other circumstances.

sadly this board seems to be filled with folks in the same boat........predisposed along with horrible situations and voila here's your mental health issue(s) to contend with! Did? - Sexual Abuse caused Mental Issues

good questions......just not a poll that has enough options for us to participate in.
thx.

Yes that is true..... but if the sexual abuse took place first - then it probably was the root cause.... therefore it would be a yes.
For I have had other issues since the sexual abuse, but the abuse is what started it all.

Default Re: Did? - Sexual Abuse caused Mental Issues

I was told that yes...........Sexual Abuse did cause everything that I have as of today. Mostly all my childhood of growing up is gone......I don't remember any of it. Was told becuz the "Little Girl" inside of me is "Protecting Me" from what ever happened to me growing up. I do remember things, that I wish I didn't remember @ all.......Also "Clowns,Attics,& especially Basements" I'm afraid of !!!!! Just talking about it goes through my spine right now while writing this to you......I was also told & found articles about Bipolar that it does tend to run in famlies. I know that on my father's side nearly everyone was mad/crazy!!!! Including my father. Maybe that's why he sexually abused me along with: Physical Abuse,Mental Abuse,Verbal Abuse!!!! Along with with his friends,landlord,then nearly every relationship I got involved with while growing up.No wonder I"m this way!!!!!!!!
Wow, you know what??? This is the 1st time in my whole life that I feel so @ ease & comfortable about talking this to you. .............................Patty

Default Re: Did? - Sexual Abuse caused Mental Issues

I don't know how to answer this one.. I was sexually abused as a child but I don't know what actually happened. I've married abusive men and was raised in an abusive environment, and I don't even remember violence or abuse as a child... my memories are good of childhood. so i don't know if childhood caused my problems or I am in general a screw up.. because I tend to screw up most of the good things that happen to me.. I hate blaming my mistakes on others.. So I take responsibilities of all the things i screwed up in life... sooooooooooooooo I honestly don't know because i have nothing to say this or that happend to make me like i am today.... hmmmmm

This part may be a tad off topic but worth mentioning I think.. I seem to have more anger towards the T and the christian atty that screwed me over than any of the abusive men or childhood issues... A few years later the T told me the atty did the same thing to one of his clients that he did to me and a few others in the church when I mentioned the atty said that guy is a scum bag for he wronged them also...

I hear what YOU are saying Radio..... for my life was similar to yours and yet I can say without a doubt that my present problems all started (originated) with the sexual abuse and then only grew stronger with in all the other junk.... my pain and emotional struggles.

Default Re: Did? - Sexual Abuse caused Mental Issues

I had to think long and hard about each choice. I selected that my issues were caused by other events but wait, now that I've given thoughts to the other events, I guess it's mental abuse. I was just looking at the question and defining it as SA. However, I'm not sure at what point 'it' happened. Many unanswered questions for me.

<font color="purple"> I am not sure.... I want to vote yes to both.... I lean more towards the latter of the two..... Yes as I think about it more, I would say that the sexual is not the root to my mental illness.... altho damaging, not the core..... </font>
