Hi Everybody

Recommended Posts

hi all, just joined the forum. After 23 years of silence, I finally found the courage to talk about what happened to me.

"I could not stop talking because now I had started my story, it wanted to
be finished. We cannot choose where to start and stop. Our stories are
the tellers of us."

After 45 years I'm ready to reveal all but the world is not interested. How can they believe that I took so long to tell? Maybe I read it somewhere. Maybe I dreamed it. To me it is so real and all brought to life again. I'm glad I found this site so I can vent to people who has been through something similar.

I am recovering memories from 60 years ago !! and all during my hellish marriage I didn't tell

bar once and got such a negative reply from a *professional* that was supposed to help that I

never told again. Just because we never told doesn't make it untrue. You will find understanding

and support here. :hug: if OK :flowers: from me to you Gnome

Hi Paula. I'm new too and have a question please. I know there's different forums for different things. Which one would I use if I wanted to talk about how abuse is affecting my life today?

Hi CookingGnome,

Welcome to AS!

It took me 43 years to start talking when buried memories started coming back. You aren't alone waiting all that time. I spent a lot of time reading here and asking a lot of questions. There are a lot of good people here.

Thanks for my welcome. Feel I'm at the right place where i can talk to people who know what I'm talking about. I spoke to my husband this morning and told him how things he does triggers memories of my abuse and he said but I did f*all about it. Interesting hey? I ask myself that often. Why I didn't do something before now.
