I'm New

Recommended Posts

Hello. My name is Heather. I'm 23, I'm married and we have a 2 year old daughter (Winter) and a son (Tucker) due July 3rd. And I'm a survivor of childhood incest.

My name "IamLiving" comes from a song about abuse. It's called "Light in the Hall' and it's by Fred Small. I decided to use it because it reminds me that there can be life after all of this.

That part of the song:

"Tracing the truth through the tangle of lies

Forgiving myself what I did to survive

I am living I am living"

I'm not sure what else there is to say, besides that.

Hi, welcome to AS. My name is Sara, and I'm a member of the Newbie Support Team, which was set up to help and support new members settling in. So if you have any queries about the boards or how the site works, or just need some support and friendship don't hesitate to message me or one of the other members of the team.

I am so glad you've taken the step to join AS, although sorry for your experiences that brought you here. You'll find this is a source of endless support and the people here are so caring.

You must be so excited about having a son :) Congratulations. Winter is such a pretty name as well.

I've not heard that song, I'll have to give it a listen. I really like your username though :)

Sara :flowers:
