This is the first time in 20 years I have had the courage to find other voices. I honestly don't even know where to start or what to say. I read other peoples stories and feel like my own story isn't worth telling. The current political climate has triggered flashbacks and I'm not sure I'm emotionally prepared to deal with any of it. All I know for sure is I still feel a deep shame and its like a stain I can't wash off. I'm hoping to gain strength and insight by joining this community and know it's a safe place when I'm ready to tell my story. I think you are all amazing and incredibly brave.
