I Never Thought All Of This Would Be So Hard

Recommended Posts

Hello, my name is Elisabeth and I'm new to AS. By definition I was raised my whole life in a "cult". I was never sexual abused, but there was a lot of physical and mental abuse for the 21yrs that I lived at home. When I turned 18 I found an oppertunity to leave home. I started seeing this guy who ended up rapeing me multiple times. I moved back home to get away from him. And I'm still trying to figure out which on raped me more: him or my family/physicaly or mentaly. That was five and a half years ago.

I've never been public about my childhood or the rape. Only very few people know. I just can't keep it all in anymore!!!! I'm really nervouse about coming out public with it. I really hope that I can get some paece and healing here at AS.

"I'm so tired but I can't sleep

Standin' on the edge of something much to deep

It's funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word

We are screaming inside, but we can't be heard

But I will remember you, will you remember me?

Don't let your life pass you by

Weep not for the memories"

First of all Elisabeth, I LOVE that song.

Second, welcome. I am so glad you've found us. Like you, I've been physically and mentally abused in addition to sexual abuse. I know that they can be equally confusing. The first step and most difficult step to healing is breaking the silence. By joining us you hae done just that. Congrats! That took a lot of courage and strength.

I hope After Silence can bring you some peace. We're gad to have you. Feel free to message or PM me if you ever need to talk.

-Elle

Welcome to After Silence, Elisabeth :flowers:

I am glad you have decided to open up and not carry all that pain around inside you any longer. There are many people here who can relate to what you are going through. Post as much as you need, get those feelings out!

I also love the song you quote, Sarah McLachlan is my favorite female artist!
