Hello everyone, this is my first post and my heart is pounding. I don't feel terribly safe yet doing this. It's like maybe someone can look through the computer screen and see me sitting here. I think I must still feel pretty ashamed. I'm having therapy at the moment working through childhood abuse and feel I need more support, to connect with others having these experiences seemed a good idea although I'm struggling to read the other posts. I hope it gets easier. I hope I can support some of you too. Why is this so hard? I'm not a child anymore but I feel like one sat here! I feel like I'm doing something wrong. Well as time goes on hope I feel safe enough to share more of myself with you all.
