I am a 48 year old man and had few memories of my childhood until about 2 years ago. I was having an extremely stressful time going on in my life at the time and it must have reminded me of that same feeling when I was about 6-7. I remember going over to our neighbor lady’s house and playing board games. Things seemed to be fine until this lady wanted to change the game. She wanted me to dress up in a dress and panties. I still don’t know why I did this but I didn’t see any harm. So she had me sit on her lap and she reached up under the dress and fondled me. It scared me because no one had touched me there before.
Since I recovered these memories I have had recurring nightmares about the abuse and also flashbacks. I can’t tell anyone because it is so embarrassing, but I needed to get this off my chest. I have felt so alone. It feels good to let it out.
