Question re SA affect on you ... (trig?)

I'm sure there are lots of new folks here -- I used to post a while back under the name Purple_Pansy.
I've been dealing with my depression (non-SA related) for the last 8 months or so.
But I have a question for those who have gotten somewhere down the road to recovery.
Did you used to believe that the abuse you suffered affected your current day life. Yet, after some therapy you realize it's not having as much of an effect as you thought it did?
Granted, I'm not cured and finished by any means, but I've always said / thought that the SA I had to endure made me who I am (excusing the bad stuff -- it's not my fault, it's his for doing this to me).
But lately I'm wondering if there are other reasons. Or that it might play into who I am, but it's not as important as I always led myself to believe.
OR, I guess the possibility also exists that we (my T and I) just haven't gotten into the nitty gritty and I haven't recognized the obvious effect it had.
I have no idea if this even is making any sense. I hope so!
Hugz to all!
