    Hello Hannah, I hope this place helps in your process of healing. It's great that you have the support of your family and friends, but of course it is comforting to open up to people who have been in your position. I have only been here a month or so and I already feel at home.
  2. Very true. I always thought that would be the instinct of every women. I did not understand as a child. I thought I was doing "the right thing" and was proud of myself for keeping it in and being a good kid. I struggle to let go of the bitterness I have now. I am not a mother and I don't know if I will ever be, but your story is very inspiring.
  3. Those are huge accomplishments and ver inspiring. Welcome to AfterSilence.
  4. I'm so sorry that happened to you. I come from a similar situation. My father abused my sister and I-mother covered it up because of the shame and she was afraid of what would happen financially. It stings-she chose the abuser over her child. I think maybe our mother's are afraid to acknowledge, because that would be like admitting their guilt.

    I am here to open up about being abused by my father. He abused my sister and I. I developed selective mutism and severe social phobia as a child because I had the burden of not telling anyone. I still have social phobia, so life has been hard. I have never opened up to anyone besides my sister and mother (who did not do much to protect us). I am so glad I found this forum and I hope to open up more.
