Introducing Myself

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new. I was molested by my foster brother when i was 7 or 8. I'm 27 now. I joined AS because i wanted to have people who understand what this is like. My partner is amazing and so supportive in my journey toward healing, and i want a broader base of support so i don't lean so hard on him and end up hurting our relationship or turning him into my therapist. I have a few close friends who are helping me in this too, i am very lucky.

It's such a relief to know that there are people here who understand what i'm going through. I look forward to meeting y'all.

Welcome to AS! A good support system is so important in the healing process. I am happy you have a very understanding partner and good friends. Some of us are not that fortunate. Please feel free to lean on us when you need to!
