    Dr. I was reading this article on early trauma that causes illness later in life.
    My name is Cathy. I was molested by two uncles in my childhood. My 2 brothers molested me for years. They beat me and torchard me to keep me quite. I had no one to turn to. I’m now 52, and I now have stage 4 heart failure. I had no clue I was sick until I went to my Doctor. I have had anxiety/Depression/PTSD for most of my adult life.

    I feel that the abuse I suffered as a child Has effected my health today. I just wanted you to know. This article really hit home with me.
