Hello all.  I just found this website.  I am grateful for it too.  I am a childhood SA survivor, a survivor of R, and of DV.  These last holidays were extremely hard for me.  I often feel so alone and that I am the only one dealing with all this.  It has affected my sleep,(nightmares) my health, my checkbook, my relationships, and my waking hours are often filled with overwhelming flashbacks and memories.  I left home at 18 and never went back and did not remember until I found a wonderful therapist.  So, my stuff is coming up now to heal.  #me too also, many times in employment.  I am sorry for the reason you all are here but I am thrilled to find you.

Welcome to AS, Patrice! :wave:

I'm also a childhood SA survivor.  DV as well.  I left home at 17 (as soon as I could). I repressed everything until years later.  :notalone:

All the best on your healing journey,

Josie
