Me Too?

Me too?
At 8 years old
The doctor’s hands
Went where they shouldn’t be
Where they had no reason to be
At all
My mother was in the room
She didn’t realize
I went home
And had nightmares for years
Fell into deep anxiety and depression
Almost suicidal at age 9
Hating physical touch
For awhile
I don’t know if the doctor meant to hurt me
I don’t know if it counts
It can’t compare to the unimaginable abuse suffered by others
I don’t know if it’s fair
To say
But
Me too?

    Yes, you too. You too suffered.

    No matter his intend and whether he bears guilt or not, you suffered a trespassing of your intimate or intrinsic borders and beared the impact.
    Maybe we almost all come to suffer such trespassings in one area of life or the other. But yours happens to fall in said category. I think that it is important to recognise them, no matter whether they are big or seemingly small. As they do have impact, tend to make one shrink away, freeze, harden or even enter into the opposite rather aggressive. Aware, we can do something about it, all together.
    So, yes, you too…
