Hi mlyn :wave:

I am Cathy, I am a member of the newbie support team. Myself and the rest of the team are here to help you with any questions or problems you have starting off with the site

I am sorry to hear that you have started to have flashbacks, I know they can be very hard to deal with at times. This site is a great support system, so I am glad you have found us. And can I just say (even if you find it hard to believe at the moment) It was not your fault, you were just a child, it is never the victims fault, Who ever did these things to you are to blame and not you!

I look forward to seeing you around the board :flowers:

:hi: Hey, I'm glad to be here, thankyou for the welcome.

  

I've been reading some of the topics and relate to all the feelings and emotions that sadly we all hold.

As I am new here I believe I have to have at least ten post before I can have full access to the AS forum, so if I post the way I used to have a gab(conversation) with people, then I will be there in no time. People used to say that I knew a lot of people, I didn't, I just had the "gift of the gab" and the art of making people feel comfortabe. They used to say that I could speak for England! I used to go out of my way to help others because I wanted to! Sadly, that was before the horrors of my childhood came back. :cry:

Hi I am new as well and like you are having flash backs from over 30 years ago, I have 4 grown up children and a 15month old granson and a new grandson due in 4 weeks. I hid the pain and the shame and had a break down a few years ago and now trying to regain my life. I was dragged from the street and held captive by four abusers and still i blame myself, I should have been able to do something. But could I? I survived. Maybe that will have to be enough
