Not exactly sure what I'm seeking

Recommended Posts


I found this forum after doing some very specific Googling. I'm thinking I'm looking for other people who have had a similarly weird experience as mine. I look forward to getting to know folks and see if I can find some understanding.

Hi BrooklinBetti and welcome to the community!

I am very sorry for what you experienced and the struggles that are a result of that. You have found a supportive place with many understanding and kind people. You are not alone. 

Googling has helped many find us. It is how I started, altho I found RAINN first, but they are not an online support community such as this. I was tentative at first, but the members truly made me feel like I belonged. It was such a turning point for me, and I hope you find it somewhat of a turning point for you, as well. 

I encourage you to look around, read, write and interact at your leisure and comfort level. I hope you to see this as the safe and healing place that it is.

Wishing you the best as you move forward down the path of healing.
