    Hi all, I am happy to have found this space.

    I went through a really dark hole after I was raped and it eventually led me into addiction and suicidal thoughts.
    I know I have found much healing over the years through great support systems but I do know that I still have parts of myself that need complete healing.
    I have a daughter now and I don't want to pass on any toxic energies or behaviors.  

    Hi Pinkest, welcome to AS. I am sorry for what you have been through. My daughter's are 48 and 44. I have not passed any of my toxic energies on them. They are strong women.

    Hi all. Thank you for stopping by to read :)

    I am a survivor of childhood abuse. Feels strange to say it out loud.

    I have many questions and am hoping that I can find others who can relate.

    I’ve taken some positive steps by disclosing to  my close friends and sisters and I have signed up for therapy which will start  in about six weeks time. (waiting lists eh?)

    In the meantime I’m hoping to find others who can help me through the next few weeks and I hope I can offer support to others too who may face similar challenges.

    Thank you

    Hi Elle welcome to AS,  I am sorry for the abuse you went through as a child. I am also a survivor of child abuse by my father. Yes it's hard to say out loud but it's your first step getting your power back. You will find lots of support here.

    I feel alone. It is a daily struggle

    We all feel alone and it's a hard place to be, but remember you are not but more importantly we understand,  we are only a heartbeat away :throb:

  9. Hi GoldenChild welcome to AS.  I am sorry for the tramua you have been through. I have gone through. Much the same. You will find support here and you are not alone here.
