  1. I'm Not Sharing My Pizza

    <3 I wanted to let you know that there is a lot of this I understand, and it totally sucks. I just finished reading "The Apology" by Eve Ensler today, and though it's about father/daughter sexual abuse, it talks a lot about how horrible the emotional/psychological abuse was. It is written from her father's perspective, to Eve. He speaks of breaking her down emotionally. How he made her hate her body, made her believe she was a liar. He explained how she began hiding, but also how she felt the need to exaggerate her words so that she would be believed, all because of his tactics. It honestly goes into more depth about the emotional abuse than the sexual abuse. It may be triggering, but for me it was incredibly validating and healing to read. I recommend it. I think you may be able to relate to a lot of it, even though your situation isn't exactly her story.
  2. 5 Words To Your Perpetrator

    You did not ruin me.
  3. Hello :)

    Thank you both! @MeBeMary I appreciate your kind words Healing is indeed quite the winding road. I was 14/15 years old when I first discovered this site, and it honestly kept me going through some of my darkest years. Now here I am, safe from what I was then experiencing. It's wild to think about that young girl and I'm grateful to say that things got better. @Capulet Things have gotten much better for me. I moved far away from my abuser and began a healing process I didn't know was possible. Things come up, I live a life with PTSD, and sometimes it's hard to leave my house (okay, that is happening more frequently right now which is why I'm back here), but overall my life has improved. I'm able to see life through a lens of possibility rather than survival. Hope you are well! I totally think I remember your username! Moon
  4. Hello :)

    Hi... I was an active member about 10 years ago, but I couldn't tell you what my username was because I honestly don't remember! I've also gotten a new email address since then and have no way of figuring it out. So alas, here I am. Still trudging that road, still figuring things out, but in a *very* different place in my life. Moon
