"It is so easy to descend into madness, then opening doors and exposing old wounds..."
-Timi 
Afternoon, umm i am so not good at introductions lol. But my name is Timi! :o I am a 22 years old african american chick from Louisiana. Currently a junior in college but opt out this semester to better my mental and physical health. I am a incest and child molestation survivor and finally receive professional help through therapy. Depression, anxiety, paranoia, and Bipolar disorder have been plaguing my life every since i was child. I thought i could live with what happen to me, continue to interact with my abuser.... But after a mental breakdown, i knew i could no longer walk in my own shadows. I been lurking on message boards and with the new found strength i now have, i am ready to share my story. I want to help others who dealt with the same pain i have carried for so long. I would love to hear from others and I WANT TO BE CLEAR: My message box IS ALWAYS OPEN. Even if it is something small, like talking about your day. Always know i am here and willing to listen. 

So follow me through my retelling of my journey, How i transcend through Each Stage to recovery & peace... 

*Please Note-My grammar is horrible and one of the reasons that i have not participate in messageboards more sooner. Please excuse that because it is one of my insecurities

Hi Exhale, welcome to AS. I am a incest survivor, plus others things. I have come along way, so much stronger and feel no more shame. This doesn't define who I am.

My grammar is very bad and I leave words, if I read over what I wrote I am so good to myself that I put the words back in and post it with words still missing. The one thing about here is it is not how you wrote something, it is all about you. :aswelcomesu:

Welcome Timi I am a survivor of CSA also amongst many other traumas. I am sorry for what has brought you here. You are so strong and brave. It is always heartbreaking to me when I read that another young life was changed forever by someone that had no right to hurt you. You are not alone there are many of us that understand what you have been through. Remember when you are having a really hard day there will always be someone here to listen you just have to ask.
