Hi I'm Chris

I was rape, abused and blacked mail from the age of 14 to 21 by different men. I still haven't had the courage to tell my family and friends about, because I'm scared. I'm hoping this site helps me build enough strength.

Take gentle care of your self, you made a big step today and it can be exhausting.

Hi Chris.

Welcome to AS. I am so very sorry for all the trauma you have endured. It is hard to speak out, I know. It has been many years for me, but I have never told my family. I gave a brief version to two different friends. Otherwise, this site has been amazing to allow me to use my voice. Patricia is right, you did nothing wrong, and hope you know this. Nobody has this right and nobody can justify the abuse you've endured. Take a look around and when you are ready, our kind and understanding members will be ready to hear you. You are not alone. I wish you the very best as you navigate down your healing path.

Hi @Chris13 and welcome to AS. I am so sorry to hear about what happened to you when you were young. You did nothing to deserve that. I had to take some time to respond because your post it a little close to home for me, I can relate to the not telling family and friends because your scared. Your not alone and your among people that can relate and that truely care. Anyways welcome to AS.
