Hey guys,

It's nice to find a place like this to speak and connect with others. I've had an incredibly hard time finding support groups where I live and near by related to sexual abuse. I was molested for 6 years and have done some therapy work off and on for a few years. Recently I've seen a wonderful therapist who does trauma work and did an 18 week support group as well through him. Right now, I'm looking for a sex therapist. I've been in a great, long term relationship for about 2 years but my libido is non existent and usually ebbs and flows drastically. It's been very frustrating for both of us. I also own a plethora of self help books lol.

I work full time as a nurse, own a dog, and run a small art business. My art has been my biggest savior aside from nature. I don't think I'd be as far along without an outlet like my art. I look forward to talking and connecting with you guys on here. Thanks!

Hi syoung,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the abuse you suffered as a child, but you have found a very supportive site. The members here are truly understanding and kind. I am glad that you have found the one support program and wish you the best in finding a new T.  It's nice to have an outlet like art, and if you ever feel like sharing, we do have a creativity forum. I do wish you the very best on this healing journey.

Welcome syoung! Art as an outlet sounds great. I sometimes sketch to release emotions, but it is just a hobby. Hope yo find AS helpful - it is such a supportive community full of wonderful people.
