Difficult situation: Your companion is dealing with a painful situation, and may or may not be able to relate to you as you would prefer. Your partner's relationship with you will likely be affected by his/her relationship with the perpetrator, with all conflicting feelings. If your partner is not in treatment, this can be very confusing for both of you. If in treatment, flashbacks can still occur but there's hope.
