  1. Hello LaSol3 and welcome to AS! I have found this a very therapeutic place where I can get my feelings out. I think you have to make at least 10 posts, or comment 10 times on others posts before you can access chat which is where I have made friends. It's nice to be able to talk to a community of people who actually understand. You are not alone! Sorry for the reasons that bring you here. I support your healing 100%!

  2. Welcome to AS BeesKnees :) 

    Congrats on your precious little one! I can imagine how concerned you are for the safety of your child! Sending you lots of support! Here is a post that has many good articles on understanding the various reactions to CSA and I feel it may help you to understand what you are going through better and offer you support! Hope it helps you as much as it has helped me :) I support your healing 100%


  3. Hi Stacey! Just wanted to say welcome! :). The people here are very supportive. I wish you peace of mind and healing for your heart. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you, feel free to private message me anytime. I support your healing!

  4. Sian,

    I am so sorry! My heart goes out to you. Not only have you endured horrific pain for a lifetime, but then your therapist who's job is to make you feel comfortable failed at her job. I can understand why it would be hard to open up. You can talk when you reach a point when you feel safe and are ready, don't ever let anyone force you to talk. My acupuncturist told my family who were supportive and took me in that it would be risky for me to see a therapist because of the extent of what I had been through. I miss her very much, she passed away around 5 years ago. She was a very smart lady who specialized in childhood sexual abuse and even treated kings and queens! She was from England and a graduate of Oxford University. The healing process is a long journey and so after I lost her, I had to find someone else who could help and it's not easy to find a new Doctor as it means repeating your story.

    Of course I'm ok with safe (((((hugs))))). Thanks I needed that :)  *safe hugs back*

  5. Hi Sian,

    I am new here too. I'm so sorry you had no where to turn for so long. It took a lot of courage and inner strength to get away from your abusive situation. That was a huge step. I was abused from infancy to 16 years by both family and "friends". I am 31 years old and joined to reach out to support victims of abuse and also to find support for myself. I am seeing a therapist but sometimes it can be hard to open up and ask questions, I have found that some of my questions have been answered just by browsing in the forums. I think it helps knowing that there are people out there who can relate and that we don't suffer the affects of the abuse alone. I wish you peace of mind and healing for your heart.
