Adults who were sexually molested as children can have many responses. They can experience anxiety, depression, flashbacks, nightmares, hypervigilance, self-injury/suicide attempts, and pain syndromes. Some isolate themselves. They may do fine at work, but have few or no intimate relationships. Substance abuse may be the path of others. With a good therapist, treatment can be lifesaving.
