Introducing

13 posts in this topic

Hi everybody,

My name is Jolanda, I'm 28 years old, from Amsterdam in The Netherlands.

I've been abused since I was a child, sexually, mentally, and finally I found the courage to cry out for help. Starting therapy in hopefully a few weeks. It is still very difficult for me to talk about what happened, and as it is my first time speaking out I'm a rape victim "on public" I like to leave it by introducing myself for the time being. It is, how sad it might be, nice for me to see I'm not alone in all the pain and anger. Take care of of you beautiful girls, 'till next time,

jolanda :blush:

Thank you all for being so kind. It makes me feel less lonely and understood. Lately I'm finding it difficult to watch tv, speaking about violant movies and especially the ones with sex abuse in it. It can bring me in a flashback, and it made me turn of the whole tv. I hope this will get better in a while, as I do like watching my soap opera's, ... :kitty: Love, Jolanda
