Hi, I'm relieved to find a place like this where I have a safe place to be myself with other survivors. I was molested by an Uncle when I was a child and then raped when I was a teenager. I haven't shared my story except with my therapist, and just recently part of it with my husband who has been very supportive but I can't place the entire burden on him. I've decided to seek out other survivors because I realized I need a supportive place that I can come to take a break from being strong all the time and pretending like nothing happened.
