  1. Thank you everyone for your warm welcome. It truly feels like I found a network of others who do understand and won't pity but rather be empathetic to those like me.
  2. sometimes to heal from such a horrendous action against our will, we have to face those feelings, emotions and memories, and it will hurt like hell as we re-live it but for some it is necessary to realize it's NOT YOUR FAULT!! please, don't beat yourself up over what someone else did to you. Time will begin to heal, as long as you allow it. Stay strong, hold your head high and tell yourself everyday " I did not have control over (insert here), but I am in control now"
  3. There is always hope and not all men are abusers. I truly hope you find someone who will accept you for you and your past, be understanding and patient.
  4. It's okay to ramble, sometimes that's when the details come out that you need to release. With being a survivor of sexual abuse, there is a lot of cycling I've noticed personally, at least for me. Strange things will trigger a flashback, even when you are on top of the world at that exact memory.
  5. Thank you Activist Ally, I actually found the site the night I wrote my blog entry about but 3 days later when I saw my therapist, he wrote down this website and said "even if you just read other's stories, it may help you to realize you are not alone in the way you are feeling right now". Sadly, I know I'm not alone, and it angers me that there are so many innocent individuals who have that innocence stolen from them. Thank you for the warm welcome!
  6. Being new here, I don't know where to begin. I am a 35 year old mother/wife/social worker who endured many years of sexual abuse at the hands of multiple abusers. I can remember back to around age 2, the touching by "them" in areas they should not ever touch on a child, for their pleasure. I unfortunately was not their only victim, all the females on that side of the family were targets, regardless of age. Finally at age 13, I told a friend. He helped me to tell a therapist in the psychiatric hospital we both were patients of at the time. I had to tell my parents.... my father yelled and said
  7. talking about it to someone you trust does help, it's a step in the right direction. I am new here as well but am a survivor of long term sexual abuse by multiple abusers. I am a mother, a wife, a social worker, a friend to many, but I am continuing my journey to heal fully. You can do it, just never give up.
  8. proud of you! take tremendous courage to speak up and tell someone! you are on the right path! keep your head up and stay strong!
  9. thank you, I didn't see your reply before the last post.
  10. oh yeah, I am female, so if someone could help me get a password for the protected forum topics, that would be great. Thanks
  11. Hello, I'm nolongeravictim, and my therapist suggested this site to me. I was wondering how are we able to post on other protected forum threads as I would like to talk about a question that has been weighing on me but not on a public forum. I was a victim but am working hard to change that to survivor/warrior for others.
