Hello, New Here

Recommended Posts


I'm a new member here. I used to frequent several abuse survivor websites that no longer exist. After recently reading, A Child Called It, I've realized I once again need a little support & encouragement. The book had been reccommended by survivors for years to me, and I finally got the courage to read it. But, it was very disturbing, triggering and has forced me to re-open this chapter of my past.

I'm 24/f, happily married with two sons.

HI, here are alot of nice people. Good that you have the courage to talk.

I ve not read that book, but I am reading the Judith Herman book on trauma, that is a really good one. Calming without disturbing, however cannot say how you will react on it.

Hope you re ok and enjoy your time here.

-best, f.

Thanks a lot, guys. I have a really hard time sharing if I feel I am not being received well.... and I often believe I'm pretty hard to get along with. :-( So, I'm very introverted. I am really hoping I can overcome that and actually link up emotionally, and spiritually on a level

I am normally unable to connect on.

Your welcomes are very much appreciated and just wha tI needed!!!
