First time sharing with anyone

Hello everyone! I don’t know what to say. I recently moved out of my mother’s home where I survived sexual abuse for about 14 years. I was looking to share my story and possibly make friends with people who understood the emotions and aftermath of what I’ve been through.

Hi Catleon,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry you endured 14 years of abuse, something no one should have to endure. It was unfair and undeserved. Make no mistake tho, leaving an abusive situation is never considered easy and you are very brave to take that step.  This is a supportive community with many understanding and kind members. You are not alone. Feel free to look around and interact where you feel comfortable to. I am wishing you many steps forward as you move down this path of healing.

Mary
