My daughter will start trauma counseling next week apparently we have to wait until after she gives her statement.There is usually a waiting list of 4-6 weeks and the counseling is free through Network of Victims Assistance( A little disturbing knowing so many children need trauma counseling)Anyway they put her to the top of the list because they suspect she is suffering from PTSD(again disturbing being moved up)I am grateful for the counseling and I just wish this nighmare was over,no I wish it had never happened.No child should have to go to trauma counseling,no child should have PTSD or depression. My daughter is embarrassed to tell her story to strangers,she cried Monday and Tuesday because she says she can't get the thoughts out of her head.My husband told his mother tonight that hewill beat his nephew if he ever sees him again,oh and what is my daughter's abuser doing this weekend?camping with his boy scout troop,having fun,hiking eating smores .I have never in my life felt so much pain,I am scared for her future.I hope I am being pro active enough,I know the statistics,drug abuse,alcohol abuse,promiscuity are all possibilities.I guess I am feeling a little depressed myself tonight and it helps to write here.Thank you all for listening and understanding
