I discovered this forum on accident, truthfully, but I’m so glad I did. I’ve been struggling to come to terms with what has happened to me for years, and I want to be able to move on. I want to be able to love someone without flinching at their touch.

I’m so ready for this, because I know I can do it! Also, I took a picture of a really pretty bird today.

I stumbled across this forum by accident as well. I haven't posted much because I have really bad anxiety.  I am on here reading everyday though. Trying to get the courage to share my story, but I think you'll find this place really helpful.  Everyone is very accepting.  Love the bird picture... its a Morning Dove ❤

Welcome to AS, @Reika!  Although the circumstances are not ideal, I'm glad you've found us.  I am hopeful you can begin to heal now that you are surrounded by others who can relate and understand what you're going through. 

Thank you for the lovely bird photo! :)  

Wishing you all the best,
