My Saying Hi

Recommended Posts

hi, i'm not very good at writing these things but i will try

i'm a 17 year old girl and a survivor. i just joined this forum because i feel i need to tell someone my story. i don't have anyone to tell it to, so i found this place.

i hope this place will help me come to peace with what happent, and maybe i can help other people as well.

sorry if i write something wrong, i never went to school so i taught myself to read and write. if something is wrong, tell me please so i can get better.

welcome, share as much or as often as you are comfortable with. I read a lot of other people's posts and commented before I felt confident to start a topic.I've found people very supportive here.Well done on teaching yourself to read and write, that shows great determination and some people who went on to become writers did the same thing.
