    totally agree with changes in sexual activities…i am woman assaulted at Christmas..still acting out..still no treatment from victim of crime..How long before these behaviors become entrenched?
    I have been diagnosed with ptsd in 1994…did lots on my self to recover..since assault, have not been able to return to work..and have totally changed my social scene, from social welfare workers, which i am, to out laws bikers …where do i get support please..i want to get well…Susan
