Hello Everyone

Posted (edited)

Hello everyone...I'm CC, nice to meet you all and i hope you're all well / healing.

I've never reached out for help but after numerous breakdowns i know I'm ready and i need to before i lose my head.  It makes me extremely uncomfortable writing this but I'm searching for anyone, someone to speak to about things going on in my head right now and maybe someone can recognize the same feelings or offer guidance. I can't afford online counseling and I'm desperate for it lol. (1st world problems eh?)  

Ive been remembering 'experiences' and smells..tastes..that sicken me. I was 15 when these things occurred and i cant believe it still affects me. I know it wasn't a normal relationship, i was groomed, love bombed, used, manipulated,  and sexually abused until i turned 16. He was 22.  I have had dreams and intrusive deep thoughts about situations from this time.

Thanks for reading if you did and im here for ANYONE who wants to speak or have a friend. Peace and love.

Hi CC,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what you went thru as a teenager. It is never right for anyone to hurt you. I am very sorry he betrayed your trust. Trauma does sadly take much time to process and start to heal from. You are not alone.

We know struggles here and you will find many members who you can relate to. Your trauma is validated here. This truly is a community of supportive and kind people. Take your time to look around and jump in when you feel comfortable. I wish you well as you continue this journey we call healing.

Mary

I am also new here and I have to say you are braver than I am for sharing some of your story. I am so sorry that this happened to you. I hope that you are able to find some support here.
