My Introduction - Australian Survivor

Recommended Posts

I'm Alan, live in Australia I'm 23. My girlfriend just broke up with me because of issues she says comes from my past. So I realise too late now that I need help with all this abuse sh*t that's effecting my life and my relationships.

So I finally found this place and I'm glad theres a place to come where I can speak freely about past abuse.

Had a really ruff start to life with just my mum. Never knew my dad.

Sadly mum's been an addict most her life and probably always will be.

Abused sexually and physcially from 7-12 by my mum's bf/dealer/pimp.

Was also sexualy abused by some older teen guys at school.

It's hard to admit that my mum also joined in some of the abuse but its complicated and don't want to talk about it yet.

Too many mixed feelings :(

Its so hard to admit this stuff I cant believe I even wrote it.

I hope what I wrote here is ok, oh and sorry about the swearing
