Hi Everyone

Recommended Posts


Just thought id post a message and introduce myself a bit. I'm a survivor of abuse as a child and adult. I've been struggling a lot lately with it all. I feel like its time that i got my life back and not that the people who abused me win. I'm here for support and hope i will in turn be able to offer support to others. I look forward to getting to know you all.

dear friend let me first start off by saying " WELCOME "

i am glad that you have come here and that you are willing to take control of your life again. it is a difficult thing to do and say so if you get discouraged please dont think you have fallen for we all do and it takes a little while to get up so dont feel like a failure. i too suffer from csa ( childhood sexual assault) and i am still facing the possibility every day. i hope that you find what you are looking for here. if you ever need someone to talk to email me or pm me for i always answer and i always check my mail at least 2 or 3 times a day. i will discuss anything you want to talk about. i hope you are doing well and that this post finds you in good spirits!

lol welcome to AS nobody, I am glad you are here, we seem to have something more than a terrible past that connects us. As you see by my name, maybe we were both looking for a friend, someone to lean on. Anyways, good friend's or not I am very glad you found our safe place, and look forward to hearing from you on the posts or in PM. Again, welcome to AS.
