Ok, so I know that all parents feel guilt over the sexual abuse of their child, I get that. It's coming up on a year that my daughter told me about the abuse, in November. I am racked with guilt. I keep trying to tell myself that it's not my fault but I keep feeling like it's punishment for something!!!!!!! I honestly don't know how to deal with the guilt!!! I'm constantly crying at work and at home and everywhere in between! I see a new primary care physician tomorrow. Thinking about asking her about antidepressants but I'm honestly a little scared of them. I've been on a few in the past and always seem to have the negative side effects! I need to not feel this guilt, I come so close so many times to breaking down in front of my daughter and I feel like if I do that, I've lost all reason and she'll think I'm not strong enough for the both of us. This monster is only on house arrest because of his handicap and the trial date keeps getting bumped. I'm sure that has something to do with it. Any words of wisdom for this lost soul?
