Medical trauma

Post by Mrsnutkin »

Trigger warning.

It's very difficult and embarrassing to write but I need to get it out.

When I was a young child I suffered from constipation and as if that's not embarrassing enough I had to have suppositories. Now, I'm not saying that that's wrong but I was made to feel like it was my fault. Like I was bad (by my parents.) I feel traumatized by this and like if they had only talked to me about it and helped me to understand they were doing it to help me and not to hurt me or because I was bad.

I don't want to invalidate anyone else's experiences at all but sexual abuse is quite often spoken about and this just isn't.

I think I just needed to say it. If anyone has any words of comfort that would be great but if not I'm just glad I was able to say it.

Well done for getting that out Nutkins. It sounds like it was an incredibly difficult experience for you. No words of wisdom but know I've heard you and I hope you get help should you need it.
