hvs101 posted a topic in Public: Welcome!hi this is my intro to my blog as a newbie. I’m dealing with my trauma that occurred at the ages of 14,15, and 16. i was Sexually assaulted by a friend as well as groomed by a teacher, and a few other men along the way. I’ve ignored it for years but going back to therapy has made me recognize the cause of many of my mental health issues now. I just feel really lonely with the after affects of assault and grooming. I still have nightmares about my teacher and still freak out about 85% of the time with sex. I just Really have been looking for a community that understands what it’s like to have t
JustCats posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hi, I’m happy to be here. I am just accepting that what had happened to me at 15 years old was not my fault. I’m 33 now, and I haven’t talked about this much because I didn’t quite understand what had really happened. I was 15. The young woman was 21 and her older brother was 24. It started with warm embraces. Signs of love. I’ve been grappling with this for years. I was in denial for many years. I never wanted to be a victim/survivor. As I got older, I felt extremely confused about what had happened. I felt something wasn’t right, but I continued to blame myself. ‘I allowed them to do i
violetsmum posted a topic in Public: Welcome!I'm so happy to have found this group I could cry - in a good way. I hope I can help support all of you, as I follow my own path. I know how tough it can be. Quick intro: I'm a divorced mother of three amazing grown kids and one really weird cat, and I live in the Chicago metro area. I write professionally, but my boring day job pays the bills. My story is unreal, in good ways and bad. It'll unfold as we get to know each other. I'm here because I feel like I've exhausted all my friends with my brokenness. They're supportive, but if you haven't been there you really don't get it.
New here, looking for community :)

K-anon posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hi all. I’m new. It’s my first time really entering this realm of people since I’m not very good at accepting what happened. Lately though things have been rough. My boyfriend has admitted it’s too much for him when I have those nights of breakdown remember that horrible moment. The one person I thought understood and was there to comfortable me is no longer there and I can’t bottle it up again because the bottle was already opened. Now I’m stuck in my own madness feeling alone, scarred, disgusted, and tired of living. -K-anon

RinRuss posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hello all, I just wanted to make a first post to give a brief story about what's happened and what I'm currently going through. I am a now 23-year-Old woman who suffered abuse when I was a child into my early/mid teens. I never really got the support I needed from family or even friends, even when I did finally come forward and tell them what happened. I know now that many people just don't know how to react or handle learning something like that themselves but because of that, I've lived a life full of negative choices and regret. I can't blame my abuser any more for what has happened in

I am very very new to all of this, it has only been about 36 hours since what happened happened.

TeaganRat posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hello, new here! Hoping for some guidance. A few years ago I told a couple of my friends about what my sister's (now ex) boyfriend did to me when I about 8 years old (I'm 18 now) but they just shrugged it off like it didn't matter. I don't trust my family enough to talk to them about it. I have since found a lovely guy of my own but I now I feel dirty knowing I've had sex with 2 guys. He stole something important from me, and I'm considering having a hymenoplasty, and saving sex for our honeymoon. A second attempt to get it right, and have a fresh start. I want to be healed emotionally and was

ally6 posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hey, I'm new to this forum and a bit nervous about being here. I've been dealing with all the emotions that goes along with what we've all been through that has brought us here on my own. I've found that I've reached a road block to what I can do by myself. I'm 20 so I figured it's time to make a change. I joined this forum to ease into opening up to other people on my own terms. Thanks
