Hi - I'm New Here!!!!

16 posts in this topic

Hi! My name is Ruby, and I'm new to this forum. I have been sexually abused as a child and raped several times in adulthood since then. I am currently 28 years old and just beginning to look at my abuse issues in therapy. I am in recovery for alcoholism, drug addiction, and anorexia. I have recently made the decision to end my codepedent relationship and be alone for the first time in 10 years - this is very scary. I'd like to find people for support who have been where I've been. I'm tired of all the self-hatred and dysfunction.

Ruby,

I HAVE been there. And I know that time goes on. I'm 24 years old and I feel like there isn't much left inside of me. And then I meet others who are older than I by a few years and I see how they are expanding their futures and trying to put some belief inside of themselves and I think that is such a wonderful thing. It lets me know that the past is not my enemy it's only the oast and future healing can begin at any moment.

Hi Ruby,

I'm glad you found this place - it seems to be a wonderful environment for learning to live through the past.

You were looking for people who can relate............ HI I'M BALUE :)

I'm a 34 y.o. survivor of mental/physical and sexual abuse. I consider myself as healed as you get from these things.

I have been addicted to narcotics - and drank WAYYYYYY too much - Both are past. so I understand addiction and the fight to not be addicted. Although I'm not now nor have I ever been in rahab for them - So I might not be much help in that area. I do know a little about the process though.

I was in an codependent marriage for 13 years that was full of B*llshit followed by a long term codependent NIGHTMARE cohabitation after that.

I left this last relationship with a 3 month old son. It was my decision, I just got tired of all the dyfunction and said that is it - I will not raise my child like this-

I've been without a relationship for the past year - and I want it that way. From one codependent to the other - I am just not taking a chance on my radar till I'm sure I won't pick a person from a codependent place.

So, there are my areas of simularity.........Please consider me here for you anytime you need an ear.

Welcome and blessings,

Balue
