Hi

Recommended Posts

Hi. I recently found this site as I was trying to help other survivors like myself... and in trying to help them I realized that I hadn't healed at all... I had just kept burying everything under me and ignoring it.

So, when I tried to help others and found myself so raw that I would burst into tears just thinking about things and knowing that I still have night terrors every night I decided maybe I should try this site and maybe I could find some help here...

My name is Lori. I am a survivor of mental, emotional, verbal, sexual and physcial abuse by both family and an ex boyfriend.

i just found this site this morning at about 1:00am, i cant sleep.. i was laying in bed, eyes wide open... and then "that night" started to play in my head over and over... i had to get up, had to go do something.... so i surfed the net for some "survivor sites" and this was first on google's list.... so here i am ,.... i think what everyone here is doing is an amazing thing!!! im so glad there is a place that i can go where other people can relate to what i have been through.... and to the contributing members... thank you so much for your support and care..!! Everyone here is in need of a place like this!!

THANK YOU!

Thank you all for the warm welcomes and hugs :) I appreciate it and I am happy to be here... even though I tend to cry at the thought of logging in... although I think that is just a stage and I'm okay with the tears because I have always had a "no cry" rule but I think they mean healing now, it's just getting through all the "muck" to start said healing, right??

Thank you so much. :throb:
