I'm new to all this. I have felt very alone for a long time. I have a few close friends who are supportive but they just can't relate to what I'm going through right now. I was abused by an older brother and my dad at a young age. Some memories I've had a long time. But now that I'm working through those I'm having more memories. And to add to that my son was recently convicted of sexually abusing two of my other children and is being charged for abusing a third. Right now I'm really struggling. Glad I found a place like this.

Hi Cheeryo,

Welcome to AS. I am so sorry for the trauma you have endured by people you should trust. They had no right to hurt you as they did. You will find this a very supportive site with many understanding and kind members. I am glad there is some support in your life, but understand how they don't truly understand because they have never gone thru it. I am very sorry about your son. I can't imagine the anguish you feel as a mother. I am glad that you have found us, tho. It is a place to start in this journey of healing. Please know, you are not alone.

Mary

Hi Cheeryo, and welcome to AS, although I'm sorry for the trauma that brought you here.  I hope that our community of caring supportive people who 'get it' will help you feel less isolated as you recover and try to cope with everything that you are still going through. I'm a mom too and really empathize with how hard things must be right now. :notalone:

Hi, Cheeryo, and welcome! :wave: I’m sorry for all you’ve been through and what you’re going through. It wasn’t/isn’t your fault. Safe hugs, if okay. :console:

Thank you for the encouragement. It's hard to see the light when you're surrounded in darkness ☹️
