SORT BY Relevancy
An individual who was sexually abused as a child is an adult survivor of child sexual abuse. This abuse may have had long-term effects on the survivor’s life. In most instances, the victim of the abuse never discussed the abuse with others while it was occurring. This individual is learning now, as an adult, to deal with the effects of the abuse.
Possible Long-Term Effects:
Each individual’s experiences and reactions are unique to that individual. However, with so many survivors breaking the silence and talking about their experiences, it has become apparent that there are some responses to child sexual abuse that are common to many survivors.
Feelings of extremely low self-esteem or self-hatred are common in survivors. Extreme depression is something with which survivors also battle.
Survivors often experience frequent sleep disturbances and nightmares. Links have been made between this and the fact that children are often sexually abused in their rooms, in their own beds.
Trust is a crucial issue for many survivors throughout their lives. They were betrayed by the very people who cared for them, who insisted they loved them even while abusing them.
Re-victimization describes the process whereby women who were sexually abused as children frequently find themselves in abusive, dangerous situations, or relationships as adults.
Survivors with disabilities who experienced sexual abuse in childhood might never have reached a level of independence to escape this abuse and it has become a way of life.

Life's Issues with Lloyd Rosen and his guest Robert Tremblay & Maxwell Ivey:
Robert Tremblay has been a Management Trainer nationally for 18 years before being diagnosed terminal and surviving after a near death experience that changed my life. Prior I was in Law Enforcement with my last position being named "the youngest chief of police in the country." I left Law Enforcement after various injuries and disillusionment after arresting the entire board of selectman and road agent in my town for conspiracy. Prior to this I was a decorated US Army Veteran. I have been a national Trainer and accredited speaker in sales management and spent many years traveling the country teaching. After my experience I have set a course on writing a book due out in the spring of 15 called "Twenty Seconds". I plan on advocating for my disease and starting a foundation to give back to various charities that assited me during my illness.
Maxwell Ivey a 48 year old totally blind gentleman who grew up in a family of carnival owners. All I ever wanted to do was to continue in my father’s and grandfather’s footsteps and be part of the family business. As you can tell by reading this that isn’t where I ended up. I did help in the business over the years, but couldn’t sustain it after the early death of my father from lung cancer. I then turned to helping people sell their amusement equipment. I do that on my other site the midway marketplace.

In this episode of I Am The Light Network, we discuss how childhood issues direct weight gain, obesity, anorexia, and a variety of food issues. We develop our response to food from our family and how they presented food to us. Was it a treat? Was it a challenge? Did you have to eat it all? Did you want to rebel & run away or throw it away? Was it only at the dinner table that you were treated with respect? So many questions you need to examine to find your real subconscious relationship with food.
Michele also addresses the 3 pm slump - falling asleep issue that many people experience.
This is the 3rd part of our four part series on Food - Weight Gain or Lose / Obesity or Anorexia.

Join us Tuesday evening at 5:30pm as we speak about a very important topic.Childhood obesity is much more than a cosmetic concern. The health consequences of childhood obesity include greater risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma and other serious illnesses. The combination of these health effects and the dramatic increase in childhood obesity rates over the past three decades causes some experts to fear this may be the first generation of American children who will have a shorter life expectancy than their parents.
