Hello. : Hello. I can't tell you if there is a physical / health problem with your genitals. You sound intuitive. Having emotions kindled of past trauma can also make you ripe for possible reliving. Sometimes with reliving, you can feel, hear, see or smell things that occurred during your trauma. If you are not seeing a therapist already, i recommend that you do. Take care. ...Read more

What causes a person to commit child abuse/molestation? My moms father&brother sexually abused younger now suffers from schizophrenia/bipolar.

What causes a person to commit child abuse/molestation? My moms father&brother sexually abused younger now suffers from schizophrenia/bipolar.

Many things: Such a painful situation here. Many people who abuse or molest children were themselves abused . . . . Thus perpetuating a generational crime against younger (and less powerful) kids in the family. The key is to shift the victim to survivor through timely treatment, as was probably not done for the perpetrator. Sometimes when the child "tells, " she or he is not believed, either. Tragic. ...Read more

What are the challenges of having a relationship with a female that has been sexually abused?

What are the challenges of having a relationship with a female that has been sexually abused?

Trust a problem: There is usually a problem with trust. Since the abuse is usually at the hands of someone she trusted, it is hard for her autonomic system to trust that you, too, won't abuse her someday. Maybe today. So sexual responses can be inhibited - or even exaggerated. Hard for her to know she is loved for herself (how valuable could i be if someone could do that to me? But with therapy+time it can work! ...Read more

Can you please explain how and why who were sexually abused in childhood masturbate obsessively?

Can you please explain how and why who were sexually abused in childhood masturbate obsessively?

Variable responses: Some of my sexually abused patients have masturbated compulsively. For several this has been a way to self-soothe, under their own volition rather than someone else's. For others it has been a way to experience themselves as still intact despite previous experiences. Others have not wanted to acknowledge their sexuality at all. So, the response is variable and never an automatic one. ...Read more

Dr : Dr ferraz provided good information. Your global functioning assessment score or gaf is simply a numerical score which estimates how well you are functioning socially, psychologically and occupationally. Our gaf scores fluctuate. For instance, if my pet dies and I am really feeling sad, my gaf may drop. When I am feeling better and functioning at a better level, my gaf score may be higher. It sounds like you have faced a lot of trauma in your life. What is more important than gaf scores, is getting help so that you can feel safe, happy and productive. Good luck. ...Read more
