  1. Angel, welcome to the forum but I am sorry for what brought you here. I understand you taking your story down. When I shared mine I immediately had to fight back the urge to delete it. I still have the urge. We support you too.
  2. Hello Uni, welcome to the forum. I am sorry for what brought you here but I am glad you sought out the support you deserve. I am sorry for what you went through as a child. But I am proud that you were able to go to college and graduate. I think it is a good thing that you sought out support after speaking with your sister. No one deserves to be hurt and especially as a child and again later as an adult. You deserved so much more kindness and gentleness than you were given. It is completely common to be anxious about posting. I know I am every-time I start a thread. You are correct

  4. Hi and welcome to the forum. I hope you find the support you deserve.
  5. Welcome to the forum. I am glad to meet you but sorry for whatever trauma has caused you to seek support. I hope you feel welcome here.
  6. I regret not reporting it. But at this point it is a he said she said because the evidence is gone. I had a friend who reported it immediately and did the whole evidence stuff. I cannot tell you how it was for her because I don't know. I only have a basic understanding. However, I do know that when the guy went to prison, she benefited(helped her heal) due to him being held accountable.
  7. Hi there "thistooshallpass4", I am glad to meet you but sorry for what brought you here. Healing almost always takes a long time and even can take years or decades. That hollowed out feeling is also one of the more common feelings, especially during the healing process when some healing has been done but more is left. It's okay to become emotional when thinking, talking or even typing about these things. I think all of us are on that journey to feel like ourselves again. It is a long road and sometimes the path seems too long. But with each step we take, the destinations gets a li
  8. Hello NativeinWisconsin, welcome to the forum but I am sorry for what has brought you here. It is good that you are already in counseling. You can heal and will heal.
  9. I am glad to meet you but I am sorry for what has brought you here. As far as this being the place to post your story, only you can figure that out. That being said, I am new here but I suspect this will be a good place for me(if/when I decide to tell my story). Be kind and gentle with yourself.
  10. Hi and welcome to the forum. I am glad to meet you but sorry for the circumstances that brought you here. Trauma isn't something people "just move past". The simple fact is trauma is traumatizing. We all have a journey to take in order to heal but those journeys are unique in their path and timing. You will take the path to peace at the pace that works for you. It cannot be rushed. I agree, it is easier to write than to talk about horrible things. I'm still trying to find the words to put in text. I am no where near ready to use voice. So yeah, I get it. Although I am new to this f
  11. I also am having trouble sleeping but I am getting sleepy. You take care of yourself too.
  12. You guys have made me feel comfortable. I'm just not sure when or if I want to start dealing with my healing. Just thinking about it makes me feel very vulnerable. I get that heebie-jeebie feeling.
  13. Thank you and I am glad you found some healing here.
  14. I am so sorry for the stuff that happened to you as a child. I know how messed up that is... Thank you for the support. Thank you for the support.
  15. Thanks Mary and I am also sorry for the trauma that brought you here. That realization that I am far from alone, is very disconcerting. I have been looking around but it's all just a little raw for me and I'm just trying to make sure I can still breathe.
