First day on this forum

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. This is first day on this forum and my second self-initiated post. Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a 32 year old female from Canada and a survivor of a 24 year old childhood trauma. I was encouraged to find an anonymous community of support by my husband just to give myself a place to unwind and discuss my traumas with people who are not judging and can relate like others in my life cannot. 


I am thankful to have found this community and hope to share my story soon when I can find the words and the strength for it.

Hi Fiona, and welcome--though sorry to hear that you "fit" on a site like this.  You'll find a very warm, welcoming and supportive community here--it has been a godsend for me.
