Are there any problems so bad we can't talk about them?
Earlier this year I answered this question: "I was sexually abused when I was 11 and have not been able to talk about it. I am 54 years old now and my wife left me last week as I have had problems getting close, and struggle with sex. She thought I did not want her. I told her today, which was very upsetting for us both. This has cost me my marriage but I could not tell her before"
The statistics say that most of us probably know someone who has survived abuse of some kind. I've got some tips from the NAPAC* website about how we can all help to support survivors
