    Hi. This gives me a chance to use loads of emoticons lol!
  2. Two people I would talk to but I'd ask the same question: How many have you raped?
  3. Welcome. Lots of support here if you need it.
  4. Hi, you don't have to do anything at all if you don't want to. Some people post their story early, some wait until they feel comfortable. Don't worry about it.
  5. You are very welcome indeed. I am sure you will get loads of support here, I certainly have.
  6. Hey hon. Sorry things are bad.
  7. Hi Mystic Warrior. Welcome. I hope you feel supported here.
  8. Hi Victoria, just take your time. There are a lot of helpful people here.
  9. I think it's important to have men here. I don't want this to turn into a male bashing site which is so easy to do because a lot of us were hurt by men but there are men out there who were hurt by men or women or their partners were. It's important to remember that I think. Anyway, welcome.
  10. Blimey there are loads of us! Some people were abused as children, some were raped as adults but the common factor amongst all people here is that everyone is lovely and supportive. I don't think I've ever seen a post go unanswered. People will always listen and help. I've even got really angry here before and people didn't judge me for it, they just helped me through the tough patches. You're among friends. We believe you.

    Hello. Nice to meet you. There are a lot of great, helpful people here who won't judge, who know at least a bit about how you feel. People are normally pretty good about pointing out if something will trigger so it's generally a pretty safe place to be. I hope you get the support you need.
  12. I know it's hard. I'm seeing an NHS counsellor at the moment (3 month wait then I get to see her for 45 mins every fortnight) so it's not full-on intense which is probably right for me now. I'm getting referred to an NHS trauma speciallist soon. The alternative is rape crisis, they might give you some support short-term. Hope you're ok.
  13. Hi Amelia and Eggshell. Welcome and I hope you find support here. It's interesting what you say Amelia about pretending to be ok. I did that for years. I'm not sure where you're from but I'm from the UK and waits for any kind of speciallist therapy normally run into years. Frightening really but there are often other alternatives. In the UK there are charities which can help. There might be people who can help where you live. Eggshell, as I said to Amelia, I pretended to be ok for a long time and that included with counsellors. Sometimes you're not in the right place to have counselli
  14. Start where you want to. One piece of advice; from personal experience, keep talking. Buried things get unburied later.
