  1. Hi! Yep, Another Newbie

    Thanks. I've been to a lot of boards, but none that are as welcoming and warm as this one.
  2. Hi! Yep, Another Newbie

    Thanks. I feel all welcome. Actually this is the first time in months that I haven't been too scared to read replies to my posts on a message board. Yeah...my husband does help a lot. I told him a little bit when we first started dating, but he didn't know the full story until a couple of days ago. I also wish none of you had to be here.
  3. Hi! Yep, Another Newbie

    Hi. 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.
