  1. Yes, actually, he said that to me quite a lot. And I quote "I'm not your real dad so it's okay for me to love you this way."
  2. I feel like sharing and opening up is kind of like opening your eyes in the sun when you've been in the dark for a long while. It burns you for a bit and is uncomfortable. But once you are used to it, it is bright and it is beautiful and it is worth it.

    Hey, we've all done things we regret. Take comfort in knowing that this regret isn't hurting anyone.

      :) Good we can do it together.
  6. I was abused by my step father ages 11-16. He was the only father I had ever known. He has been with my mom since she was a few months pregnant with me. Is this still incest since he was only a step father or not? I don't want to share anything in the wrong forum.
  7. Hi! I am relatively new to the page too. I have only been here for a few days, and like you, I was very frightened and nervous when I got here. I felt so anxious posting anything or responding on threads. But let me tell you something. In the past few days I have felt more compassion and understanding on this site than anywhere else in my life. I hope that you too, find it to be as useful as I am and that you can take the steps to help heal yourself. We welcome you with open arms. Good luck!
  8. Congrats on speaking up! You go you! I also find creativity a good outlet! Good luck in your healing

    Sometimes...

    We have been married a little over a year now. Known each other since we were 9. I think that is a lot of the reason I don't have problems all the time with trust. Sometimes. But not always. It's easier to build that kind of trust with someone you've known for so long I think.

    I am lucky in that he knows exactly what happened and he is very understanding about things. I think most of the problem is inner turmoil.

    Sometimes...

    Sometimes I feel like I am on top of the world and that I am not upset or hurt or feeling anything negative about what happened to me. Sometimes I feel like I can't even get out of bed in the morning. Can't put on clothes or even stand up. Sometimes I can't sleep at night. Sometimes I can't bear to be touched by my husband. Sometimes I feel like I absolutely HAVE to be touched by my husband. Like I an't feel okay about anything particularly out relationship unless we are being intimate. I know rationally those days where I crave intimacy that I don't really need it. That it doesn't chang
  12. I wrote this last night. I had a jumble of thoughts in my head and writing always makes me feel a little better about things. As I started writing it came out like maybe I was writing for someone or even to someone. That wasn't really my intention. But I thought I might like to post here for others to see. I don't know that it really fits anywhere though. Imagine the most terrible thing that has ever happened to you. Now imagine while this terrible thing was happening you didn't understand it was terrible. Only that it was happening to you. Imagine that you think you have to do this terrible
  13. Where do I even start?

  14. Thank you. I am feeling a bit nervous posting. I have posted a few questions about the site in general. And one is a specific thread. I don't know what I am doing though. Sort of just looking around if that makes sense.
