Hi. I've actually just posted in another thread, but thought that I'd formally introduce myself here.

I've been a net junkie for a long time, playing on forums and the like, but this is a first coming to a forum to seek comfort for a personal issue.

When I was eight, my stepfather began molesting me. It continued until I was ten. It has been 16 years since the abuse ended and though I was forced into treatment as a child, only recently have I begun to look at my past from adult eyes.

It is not easy. I'd managed to block out most of my memories or view them from a vast distance. With my current bout of depression, my therapist and I have begun examining my childhood and unlocking old wounds that I guess have never healed.

Right now I'm feeling weak, and I no longer feel like the survivor I was. I hope that in time this will change. And I sincerely hope that I can find the support and strength I'm now lacking here in this community.

I guess that's it. Sorry I can't bring myself to be more chipper right now.

Sookie: Thank you for your welcome and offer of friendship.

Browneyedsundancer: Thank you for your welcome. Even though I've just joined by everyone's responses to my post I have already felt the generosity of spirt here. It is touching. I know, logically, I am not alone in this. But as you probably understand, knowing doesn't mean feeling. And while I feel alone, it is comforting to hear (or in this case read) the words that say otherwise.

Haullie: Thanks for the welcome.

Vera: I feel like I'm repeating myself, but thank you as well for the welcome. It isn't often I come to a new board and find such welcoming people. It is a great feeling.

aquapit: Already I have found the kindness here rewarding. Little things like understanding mean so much. On a side note - your title of 'runs with scissors' is hilarious.

Your.beautiful.mistake: I appreciate the hugs. Never can have too many of those, especially when you're feeling down.

geezzzlouise: Thank you.
