Hi everyone.

I thought I'd come here to introduce myself.

I'm Faith...

I was attacked by a stranger almost 5 years ago, and somehow he still has control over my mind. I guess I've come to reach out for some support from people who genuinely know what it feels like to be hurt, rather than people who (no disrespect, and luckily for them), don't have any idea.

Please be gentle with me... I tend to self destruct rather than asking for some help, so this is really a big deal for me.

Thank you for reading this...

Hi, Faith, and welcome! :wave: It's a huge step to reach out for help. I know it took me a long time to reach out or open up to anyone. Glad you're here, but sorry for what you've been through.

Hi xKeepingFaithx,

Welcome to AS. I am so sorry for the trauma that you have suffered, but you have found a very supportive site. The members here are kind and supportive. Unfortunately, it is difficult to shake that mind control thing, but reaching out to others who understand is a big, first step. I also agree with you, no matter how sympathetic people we know want to be or can be, they really don't know the true struggles and hurt we experience. You will be treated with gentleness here on the site, and we encourage you to be the same with yourself. I wish you well on this continuing journey of healing.

Mary

Welcome KeepingFaith! I get the tendency to self destruct rather than asking for help. I'm glad that you've reached out here. This is a really supportive community :notalone:

@MeBeMary @reglois @EmergingLight @phoenixxx Thank you all for your kind words. Feeling alone is the scariest thing right now. When I feel that I don't have an outlet, things tend to spiral. I'm hoping I'll start to feel more in control soon. I don't like talking about what happened to people who don't understand. But then again, not many people actually do understand, so I'm stuck. Things are bad tonight. :(
