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.
