Hi all,

I was sexually abused at a young age and am 33 now. I never really talked about anything that happened and how it affected me. So it took quite some time for me to decide to enter this forum and write something. I am not yet sure when and how much I want to share about myself; I just feel it really is time to step outside of the shadow and get in contact with someone who had similar experience than myself.

Hi dieter, welcome to the forum.

This has been great resource for support for me and so many others. I am sure it can be for you as well. It is completely up to you how much you need to share and when you feel comfortable enough to share it. We will be here to support you.

You are not alone.

Hi dieter, welcome to AS. I am sorry that you were sexually abused as a child, I was too. I am glad that you came to this forum. I understand how hard that is too. You share only what you want to here and we are here for you.

Welome, dieter. I am sorry for what happened to you as a child, but I am glad you found AS and decided to join. This place is great to get some things off your chest and to exchange experiences about the struggles we may face as a result of what happened with other survivors. Like Patricia and SilentBird have said - only share as much or as little as you feel comfortable with.

Thank you all so much for your warm welcome. It may not seem much but it means so much to me.

Welcome dieter,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma that you have suffered, but you have found a very supportive site. You will find the members here very kind and understanding.It is quite alright to take your time and become comfortable. It's not easy to reach out and just suddenly talk about things that we have a hard time sharing with anyone. Just know we will be here for you when you are ready.  I wish you well on this healing journey.

Mary
