Hello

Hello my name is Jodi. I am new here. I was referred by the Crisis Text Line last night. I recently have begun to accept and understand what happened to me as a child and how it has affected me in my adult years.  I am sorry other people have experienced the same things, but I am also glad to know that I am no longer alone with it.

Hi Jodi,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the childhood trauma you endured and the struggles you face. AS is a very supportive site tho, with many understanding and kind members. You are not alone. I am glad you were referred here and you took the step to join. I do know what you mean tho, it is wonderful not to be alone dealing with your struggles, even tho you are sad to see others deal with similar things. Take your time and when you are ready to take another step, we are here for you. I wish you the best on this journey of healing.

Mary

Hi, @Jodisue, welcome to AS. I think the realization that I was not alone - or as abnormal as I had always thought - was one of the things I first realized that made AS such a safe place for me. I am so sorry for the trauma you experienced, but I am glad you were directed to AS. :flowers:

Jodi, experiencing extreme trauma early in life cannot help but affect us later on. It can make one feel not worthy of anything at all. Yet, there is still so much out there to embrace. Having a caring community like this can help perhaps make you feel just a little less alone.

:luck:
