My First Post

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I wish there were no need for a place like this to exist but I am glad it does. I have never dealt with what happened to me at all. I guess the shock never wore off even though it has been years. Only when I was looking for help online for a friend did I kind of crumble and let myself feel all those things. I really don't know what to do. It's so hard to talk to friends, even thoiugh I have told them. I can't tell my family because it would destroy them. I don't want this to change the way anyone feels about me. So here I am. This is my first step.

Thanks everyone. As much as I have talked to people before, which isn't very much, that little "I support U" smiley made me feel the most safe of anything. Thank you all again.

Welcome and congratulations for seeking help somewhere.

I understand. It really is hard sharing these powerfully terrible experiences with those closest to us (our families) and its something i really havent done either.

Heres to the healing.
