  1. Thanks. I've been to a lot of boards, but none that are as welcoming and warm as this one.
  2. Thanks. I feel all welcome. Actually this is the first time in months that I haven't been too scared to read replies to my posts on a message board. husband does help a lot. I told him a little bit when we first started dating, but he didn't know the full story until a couple of days ago. I also wish none of you had to be here.
  3. Hi. I'm just starting to try to cope with my abuse issues through means other than self-destructive coping mechanisms, so here I am. I suppose it's customary to tell a bit of our stories? I was abused by my mother's boyfriend. I can't quite remember how old I was the first time. Somewhere between 9 and 11. The last incident (which wasn't anything big) was when I was 20 or 21. She just broke up with him a month or so ago, and maybe that's why it's all coming out now. I don't ever have to deal with him again, so it's safe to let it out now. Oh, and I'm 23 now and happily married. I probably wouldn't be alive now if it wasn't for my husband. Poor guy. Looking foward to getting to know all of you.
