Hi, I am new and a little afraid.


Recommended Posts

Hi there. I joined this site because I recently realized that I have never really talked about my rapes and that I have a lot of bottled up fear, rage, sad, lost, empty feelings that I've bottled up for a very long time. So here I am. I know that I am not broken, but I still feel like I am. Thanks for letting me introduce myself.

Welcome to AS. A lot of us have realized that we have unresolved feelings from past abuse/assault. It can be overwhelming when you first become aware of the impact the past is having on you. But, there is hope and healing. You've come to the right place.

Hi impk,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the traumas that you went thru and the struggles you still face. You have found a very supportive site with understanding and kind members. Before coming here, I too bottled up all my emotions that I had carried for 30+ years. It's not easy, I know. You have taken a big step reaching out, one of many steps I hope you will take on this healing journey. I wish you well.

Mary

I feel the same way! I also just joined and am afraid. I have never spoken to anyone about my experience until recently. I to have kept everything bottled up for several years and completely understand feeling broken.

It helps to know I am not alone. Hope it helps you as well.
