Madison, easy enough to move on when life is good and there are no real concerns or worries. Sexual abuse, like suicide which I've also experienced in my life with my late husband, hangs around the edges of a life just waiting for cogs in the wheel to slip just one tiny bit and things start creeping in that we thought we'd left behind long ago. My guess is that it's best to try and find a good therapist, try to work this out in your head what happened to you and your family as best you can, not beat yourself up about it to the point of incapacitation and when they say...move on...well, you can move on...but you still carry that baggage, such as it is and as heavy a load as it is at the time. There are some things that happen that are just too grave, too traumatic, too awful. It stays in your heart and hopefully, in time, not as much in your mind.
