I've been dealing with a number of things lately. I'm a "survivor" of both sexual assault and abuse. I'm just starting to recognize the abuse though. I don't know quite what to say. I've dealt with the assault, but not with the abuse. It seems more personal, if that's possible.

So hi. I hope I can deal with this.

I haven't really accepted that it happened yet. It's all very confusing still. I'm not sure how I feel.

Hi Bluest Jewel,

I understand what you mean about the abuse seeming more personal. For me it is too.

I love your name. It is so beautiful.

I'm glad that you are here and are working on healing. This is a great place to do that kind of work.

Take care.

Kate

Hey Bluest Jewel.

I just joined yesterday, and I can empathize to some extent with what you have said. Sexual abuse is so very personal, as opposed to physical abuse..In my mind, because I think it holds a bigger impact because our sexual selves are so connected with our emotions. Its easy to cover a bruise with some foundation, but even harder to manage the adverse psychological effects of sexual abuse. At least, that has been my experience.

Bluest Jewel,

Hi, I'm new here, too. And you're right -- sexual abuse is the toughest!
