Just saying hello, and preemptively thanking everyone here.
 I use the username LostPunchbug (Punchbug for short is fine). I am a transmasculine (FtM) person, I use he/they pronouns, and I am in my late 20's.  I am a survivor, mainly hoping to find support eventually.  I have a couple of therapists, and they have encouraged me to reach out to a community like this, so thank you for letting me join.

Welcome on board here Punchbug, I am Wanna :flowers:

I agree with that advice, the sense of a community can be a life changer. This is a safe place where you can be anonymous, connect with other survivors and ask for support. You share in the pace and amount you feel comfortable with. This is also a chance for you to pass on the life lessons and experiences healing has given you so far. 

I am sincerely sorry for your trauma and how it has affected your life. Please know, it was not your fault. :notalone:

You can reach out to me or any staff any time. 

All best, 
Wanna ☀️
