In counselling now about difficult relationship with grown son I realise his father was abusive to us both. How to feel strong and powerful now when I was so manipulated and powerless then? I need to forgive myself for not protecting my son as a child to move on with him now. Anyone recognise this?

Doris what a very difficult lot of stuff to process. So sorry you have been through this.
I see you never got a reply to your thread...I have nothing useful to offer but thought I would pop on so you knew it hadn't gone un-commented on.
How are you feeling now?
