Hello Fellow Survivors And Members

6 posts in this topic

My name is Levi. I am 25 years of age and I take 200mg of Zoloft everyday. I've just recently started therapy to help treat and control what happened to me when I was a child. My grandfather molested me and as I am recovering old repressed memories, I believe rape is a better description of what he did to me.

I spent a lot of time with my grandparents when I was a child. I trusted them and loved them. I had sexual deviancy issues at a young age. I would try to inappropriately touch my cousins and other non-related kids my age. I also recall a day when I hid in my grandparent's room and touched myself. These memories were red flags that I wasn't equipped to be aware of or understand at the time.I've ruined many relationships because of sexual deviancy. I've also suffered from anxiety and depression since I was a child.

I had a very difficult time in school because I had trouble focusing. I now attribute this to what happened to me. At the time though, I just thought I was less intelligent than the other people around me. That made me feel very insecure, sad and hateful. School was a nightmare of an experience for me.

I feel very fortunate to live in a time where I can share my story, thoughts, feelngs and problems with other survivors from around the world via the internet. I look forward to reading other people's stories and hopefully improving myself alongside other people on this site.

Hi Levi

I'm sorry :(

I am also on Zoloft, 100mg, but I was given the okay to up it to 150mg if I needed to. Feel free to message me if you want to talk meds.
