Hello, I'm New Here And Hoping For Some New Insights!

Recommended Posts


I just found this sight a few weeks ago and I haven't had much time to read everything but I thought I should introduce myself. I'm an incest survivor. It's been a long time since it happened and I have dealt with the baggage that comes with it for even longer. One day I feel like I have a grip on it and have reached a resolution and can put it behind me, then the next day I feel like it just happened and I will never be able to be "normal." Any thoughts on this?

Welcome! My whole life is kind of like a rollercoaster when it comes to dealing with what happened to me. I go through periods where I'm fine, I feel like I'm over it, or at least am able to live with it, but most of the time I'm just a mess, to varying degrees. You're not alone in this at all.

Hello bjladams!

I am also a csa survivor of an incestuous nature. I have spent all of my life attempting to rise above it, but it comes back to haunt me, particularly upon visiting relatives. Living far away from them helps but, the healing process is quite complex. Welcome to AS! :aswelcomesu::youcanheal:

Hi bjladams,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma you have suffered. It was not fair and it was not right. You have found a very supportive site tho, with many kind and understanding members. You are not alone in a lot of the feelings you expressed, in fact I unfortunately say it is normal for your circumstances. There is no rush at this site, so take your time. I wish you well on your healing journey.
