I do know the site is large, so take your time and look around. It isn't easy to reach out, so I commend you on that. I do wish you the best on your healing journey.

Hi Heather, welcome to AS. I am sorry for the abuse that you went through. I was also abused at a young child. You will find lots of support here.

Welcome to the site, Heather! There is no excuse that you were abused as a child and I'm sure that this has had quite an effect on you. I was abused for many years while I was young as well and in general know how much this hurts. So sorry to hear about you being in a verbally abusive relationship as well. Words can be just as hurtful and these stick with me now more than anything else. The most important word you may have posted is that you are a survivor. Please know that you have now found a really supportive community. Getting things out can prove to be so helpful during the journey of trying to heal. Hopefully, you will find a little sense of peace here.

Hi Heather! Welcome to AS! I too am new. @Ian37 summed up most of what I was going to say. 

I've browsed through many forums trying to find my way. I'm still looking for my voice, but I'm slowly breaking out of my shell. The people at AS have been very nice to talk to, and I think that will help you to heal. Safe hugs :hug: if ok.
