I’m new here

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I hate this fact this forum exists. But feel glad (in a guilt induced kind of way) that there’s somewhere I could go to talk.

My marriage has broken down and my wonderful husband has left me, because I refused to seek help over what happened to me as a child. That sounds harsher than it is. He’s a wonderful man, who got pushed past his breaking point.

Hi.

Hello @Maajpvram and welcome to AS!  I'm sorry that you have reason to be here, but am hoping that you will see that there is strength in numbers and you're not alone!  

I am sad to hear that you and your husband are having troubles.  It's not uncommon for a survivor to have difficulty finding a balance between a healthy relationship and a past that is marred by trauma.  I do hope that reconciliation can be achieved as you begin to heal from your childhood abuse.  

Wishing you all the best and lots of luck!

Hi Maajpvram,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for what you went thru as a child. It was wrong and unfair to you. You will find tons of support and understanding here. I am sorry also that you are having difficulty with your husband. It is often hard to understand from a non-survivor perspective. Perhaps reaching out here will show him you do want help and any step we take is actually huge. It's not easy what we live with and it's not easy to share it. Beyond your husband, I do hope you find support for all those struggles we survivors go thru. You are not alone. Take your time and look around. I wish you the best on this complicated journey of healing.

Mary

Thank you everyone for your kindness. I’m overwhelmed by your support. This has been a lonely journey that I have been on until today. 

I started counselling today. Which was another huge step for me. I’m emotionally done for the day, but I didn’t want to not say thank you for the kindness.

Hello! I am new here too. I also experienced CSA and it has affected my marriage. I joined this forum to be able to talk about it and work through it. Welcome, you are not alone.
