Give it time....: I think acquiring the skill to deal with hurt and pain is important, medication can help to give some support but overcoming the bad memories takes time and forgiveness for those responsible. Your therapy is crucial to make sense of everything, but remember it does not define who you are and your value and purpose in this life. Hardships and suffering prepares us for purpose. Review meds maybe als
