I was molested at 9 yrs old with a gun to my head.  I get irritated easily.  Clean constantly. Should i see a doctor?  What will happen if i do?

I'm so sorry that happened. You can work through it though, with the assistance of a helping professional. Psychiatrists (md's) can also help women such as yourself. Though they often focus more on medication. ...Read more
