I Know I'm Not A Newbie But I Never Introduced Myself!

Recommended Posts

Like I said, I'm not new, but I never actually introduced myself for some reason. I guess I was shy and wary. Well, I decided to be brave and do it. Hi, I'm Rainbow, I'm 25, live in the uk. I love '80s, indie and electronica music. I'm a craftsperson (I make jeweller, cards, stationery, purses, customised clothes etc) and I work in a museum (well, not much these days) and a craft shop. I'm colourful and silly and like to chat. At the end of July this year I confronted my parents about the way they brought me up with emotional and physical abuse, and I've also been dealing with lots of repressed memories of childhood sexual abuse (by another family member).

I guess I writing this because today I'm having a hard time as some of you know. I wrote a post which was hard for me and I still really want to delete it but I will do my best not too. I want to make the effort to share with you all a bit more, so I thought this would be a good start. Thank you all for your support, you are beautiful people.

lots of love and hugs from a shaky and vulnerable Rainbowstar xxx

Welcome to AS honey, and congratulations for taking the brave step of a formal introduction, I know it is hard.

We sound like quite similar people actually, I'm a writer, but I also make my own cards, and am trying to set up a website for them before I start approaching shops and distributors. I'd love to chat about cardmaking some time :) Oh, and I'm in the UK too!

I'm sorry things are difficult for you at the moment, but I know from the little I've read that you are strong enough to get through. Confronting your parents alone is an enormous step.

We're here for you.

:hug: Ruthie
