  1. Looking In A Mirror

    I hope I get to that place some day. I can talk about it in general and my brain knows it was not my fault but that feeling of shame is still there lurking in the background. I think I still have work to do. Blessings to all of you who give us hope for the future! Marty
  2. Am I In The Right Place?

    Welcome! I just joined this group yesterday and I was nervous about starting. Everyone has been very friendly so far. I would say that if you feel a connection to what you are reading here that you have come to the right place. I have been looking for a good site for some time and this is the first one that really felt right to me. Hang in there. Marty
  3. First Time Here

    Thanks so much for the welcome. It really make a difference. Let me share just a bit about myself. I grew up in India, the daughter of missionaries. I was abused primarily by our cook but also by other men as I got older. I first told someone about 10 years ago and went through intensive therapy to heal. Two years ago we had a speaker come to my church to talk about child abuse. I bought her book and started to read it but could not finish it. Now, two years later, I am back reading her book and realizing that I still have healing to do. I thought that I had finished all my work but my physical pains and anxiety are coming back. I think that maybe some new memories are getting ready to come. I still have large periods of my childhood that I just don't remember. I am so grateful that I have a place to share my feelings. I know that I will find support and validation here. I have already seen so many inspiring and helpful things on the posts I have read. Thanks to all of you for being here.

    Hi everyone! This is my first post. I am happy to be here, but a bit nervous at the same time. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you. I will be on as often as possible. Marty
