I am new here, and wanted to say hello. I have been holding this in for far too long, and needed an outlet and a way to connect with other people who have experienced this sort of trauma. I have isolated myself because of fear, and I just want to stop being afraid. I have been too afraid to talk openly about what happened to me with anyone, and have told only three people about what happened. I have trouble connecting with people emotionally because of my experience, and find myself clinging to those who know my "secret." I just want to unburden myself of this traumatic experience and learn to live a healthy life despite it. I joined because I felt like this would be a great way to connect with other people who understand me and what I went through. I just want to feel whole again.
Thank you for having me.
