Hey all... I'm new to this site. I can't afford a psychologist or anything like that, so I thought that this might help.

I was sexually abused as a child. The men who hurt me? Countless. I lost track after my mom's 11th live in boyfriend, and all of the drug related friends that would come over to visit me. My story is long and painful, and I haven't really talked about it. I've eluded to the fact that I was sexually abused, but I haven't actually sat down and talked about it to anyone. Now that I'm getting married, all of my emotions are rising to the surface. I don't know how to cope with the flooded memories...

Hi there and Welcome to After Silence. I am glad you found the site.

I would also like to agree with Babydoll, in researching free counselling at rape crisis centres, I have received some one to one counselling and group counselling for free.

Congratualations on having the courage to post.

Hi Scholar,

I can relate to what you are sharing. I'm glad that you are here. There are lots of ways to get support and healing help. I hope that you can read some books as well as there are a lot of healing books out there now.

Good and healing thoughts to you.

Hi, Scholar!

Rape crisis centers that also work with survivors as do local MH agencies -- most have sliding scales so that they're affordable.

Message boards are great but I hope you check these resources out whereever you live.
