7. You are not nutz.

How much it impacts you is up to you.

My story, my dad was a truck driver. He frequently came home with much less
than his supposed paycheck, robbed he said. Mom always knew it was booze and
hookers or something like that. The whole family was messed up. I got felt
up by my dad and my brother and at least two uncles that I remember (38DD when
I was 14).

I got married when I was 16 to escape. My husband died in an oilfield accident.
I joined the Army at 17, went to Germany for five years, still escaping.

My own relationships with men have been basically the kind that I don't give
anyone a chance to invade my personal space or my life alone. I have a male
friend, but I send him away when I'm done with him.

It took a really long time for me to forgive my mom and dad. My brother never
admitted what happened and other bad stuff happened with him later. I haven't
talked to him in 20 years.

I guess my point is you can't stay angry. Be clear on what happened, why it
happened, how it affected you, and then let it go.
