Hi, I'm new.

Recommended Posts

Please call me milkyway. I hope I get to find some peace with my own assault. It's terrifying to put myself up online about something so personal. I've kept my experience hidden from nearly everyone for a very long time; I hope I don't have to be afraid anymore to share my experience.

Hi @milkyway,

I'm sorry for the experiences that brought you here, but I can assure you this is a kind and supportive community.  

You definitely don't need to be afraid to share about your experience here.  We all know how scary it is to do so, but if your experience is like mine, it was a huge release and step towards healing.

Wishing you peace and healing,

Gold Raindrops
