I've been writing and rewriting this all day, so I apologize if it sounds lame. I'm a little tired, and I need to give myself a little push or I'll never do this. 

So, hello! I'm in my early twenties and I can count the number of people I've talked about this with on one hand. It's extremely difficult to not feel like a dark cloud on someone's day whenever I think about talking with someone about it. But I hope I can push past that feeling and get along with you all. :)

@LovelyE Welcome to AS!  I'm sorry for what has brought you here, but happy you are reaching out. I know it can be hard to talk about these things, and I think you will find this place is very understanding and supportive. I think I know what you mean about being concerned about leaving a dark cloud on someone's day, and I think it can feel different in this forum. I hope to see you around.

Hi LovelyE,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma that you've experienced, but please know that you are supported and validated here. What happened to you was wrong. I know it's hard to find people in real life to talk to and who understand. Please take your time and look around. Once you are comfortable, jump on in. I wish you the very best as you walk this path in healing.
