Welcome to you!

I guess most of feel like that alot of the time, which is why you have come to the right place! My personal experience of AS is that I have finally found a place where I can go, whether to share good news, or to try and express my feelings (however negative they may be), and the people I am talking to have experienced something similar and are non-judgemental. Knowing your not alone can help a great deal, and this is a great place of reflection, hope, support and comfort. I hope you find this too...

Good luck, and feel free to message me if your feeling down,

Hugs to you and your kids,

Claire. x

Welcome to AS! You will find that you are not alone here. A lot of us can identify with where you are at the moment. One thing I can tell you for sure is that you are not pathetic. The after effects of sexual abuse are difficult to overcome. I too have spent a lot of time trying to be "normal" and failed. This only makes you human. You are right to start the process of dealing with the abuse. It isn't easy but much better than trying to pretend it never happened.

Please know that you will receive a lot of support here. There are many wonderful people who understand.

I am glad you found us! :hug::hug::hug:

I just wanted to let you know, I am new here also and have found some wonderful people already. It is scary at first but it does lesson. Your not pethetic, reaching out does make you feel vulnerable but don't think your pathetic.

I hope you find much support here :)

Hi Lostsoul, welcome to AS. I agree with the others ~ you are in no way pathetic! It's so hard to keep going sometimes and it's okay to feel vulnerable. I'm sorry you've been through so much.

I hope you find the support you need here,

Take care, Reyzl :flowers:
