Finding my voice

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I stumbled upon this site while looking for a place to talk about what happened to me when I need to.

My now ex husband held me hostage at gunpoint and raped me. The anxiety and flashbacks come and go which is one reason I was looking for a place to talk to people who could understand and also hopefully not be uncomfortable. I struggle to talk to my family and support system as I know it is not something they want to think or talk about.

So here I am, hoping to be able to talk about what happened and the affects it has left.

Thank you!

Hello again, SlynZ.

Glad you found your way to the welcome area to introduce yourself. It is unfair and undeserved that you have experienced trauma, but you will find a bunch of support here. Feel free to continue to look around and know you are in a safe and non-judgmental place. I do think it is easier to lean on others who understand.

I'm glad you joined our community and wish you well.

Mary
