In brief: Difficult

That is a very difficult situation to be in.
Sexual abuse can leave lifetime scars, and of course cause PTSD. However, with counseling and possibly medication it is something that can be dealt with and overcome. My suggestion would be to search for specialists in your area who deal with sexual abuse issues and PTSD and start a relationship with them.
