Hey everyone.

This is my first post and I've been sitting here forever trying to make myself write something. This is so hard. (I'm sure you all already know that.) Sooooo, I'll just say it.

I'm here because I am dealing with some things from the past and the present and I just don't know how to deal with it. Without saying too much, I was physically, emotionally, and sexually abused by several family members when I was a child. Currently I'm in an abusive marriage and I'm trying to get out of it. Things are just really hard right now with all of the memories and my current situation.

I've never been one to easily trust people and it's very hard for me to talk about these things. I want to, so I hope I can feel safe here.

Thanks for listening.
