Hi Everyone

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody :hi:

My name is Stacy and I'm a bit nervous to be here. I still have major doubts about what happened to me and still blame myself. Although I saw a therapist for a bit and joined another message board, I still can't seem to find the support I need. I hope that I can find people here who care and understand me. I also hope to finally stop blaming and start healing. Soon, I will share my story, but not yet. Anyway, thanks for reading and I hope to see you all around the forums!

Hey hun I just wanted to say welcome! I am sure that you will find your place and support here on this board. I have never found a group of people who are more understanding and supportive. This board has honestly been a lifesaver for me. I completely understand your feelings of doubt and self blame, I still struggle with that as well, as I am sure many other do here as well. Can't wait to see you around on the message board. Sending you lots of hugs and support, as long as it's ok. Thinking of you hun and if you need anything, my inbox is always open!

With Love,

Hi Stacy and welcome-

I too am fairly new to posting in the forum, it took ages of reading before I ventured forth.

You are not alone and will find your way here. Take all the time you need and I hope for you the courage and strength to tell your story. It is a part of you and has value.

You are not alone. I don't hug well yet, but I do give flowers.
