  1. Hi everyone. I haven't been on here for awhile, just started my first year of clinical nursing college and have been completely overwhelmed..... I've also been cautiously developing a very ... intense? beautiful? frightening? intimate realtionship, there are no words to describe it, but I have had to fight some strong battles with my own demons from the SA I experienced as a child and young woman. My partner is overwhelmingly supportive, its about the last thing I've ever expected in life.... to find someone who I can trust... the hardest thing I think I have ever done was tell him about t
  2. I am still new here, but I am glad to see you have found this place. It has been sooo helpful for me, each time I visit AS I feel more 'normal' and less alone. So, welcome, and I hope this can bring healing to you.
  3. Macca, I am glad you are here. I'm new, too... less than a week, but it feels so awesome to read other survivor's words, suddenly all this sh** I have struggled with inside seems soooo normal..... YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!

Succeeding at school has given me a lot of faith in myself as a whole person. I hope it does the same for you.
  6. I am another new member. I am another survivor, but not another statistic. I am hoping to hear from other members who have formed successful intimate relationships as adults after living through childhood sexual abuse. I have come to peace with most of what I have lived through, but now I am getting "close" to someone and don't know how to approach the topic of my past with this person. I am a strong and emotionally, physically healthy person but what I have experienced is also a part of me forever. I can't hide the truths, when I was in my teens i carved on myself a lot as a way of d
