Hi Everyone

Recommended Posts

My Name is Cashmere and I have been living with a wieghted ball around my neck for three years.

I didn't want counselling, I didn't want to share, I just wanted to forget it ever happened, but I've been doing this alone for too long and I have now taken my first step in the healing process.

I 21 years old and I've had relationship, sexual and emotional turmoil in my life since the fateful event. I've done a very good job of forgetting but when I remember, it hurts almost too much to bear. No woman should ever have to physically block out memories like so many have had to do in order to stay sane.

It's dificult to imagine that I am not alone in this pain but I'm hoping talking to others who have experienced similar heartbreak will make it easier.

Thanks to everyone who reads this, as it's nice to feel involved in a community of survivors.

With my broken heart, Cashmere (South Australia, Australia)
