Hello From The New Girl.


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm Root. It's nice to meet you all. I am a rape survivor. It happened 12 years ago, when I was 16, but I really only starting to face it now. I'm feeling very alone as I begin this journey back at the beginning. I came here to remind myself that I'm not alone, and I already feel less isolated from reading the forums, so thanks already, for just being here.

Hi Root :hi::aswelcomesu::notalone:

I am a secondary survivor. My friend and I found this site about a month ago and have found it very helpful. I, too, am sorry for what happened to you 12 years ago, but I am so glad that you are now facing it and taking yourself down the path of healing. I know that healing is possible with hard work and determination. I am betting that you have what it takes.

All the very best to you. Please keep us posted on your progress. Many will be pulling for you and being here for any help that we can proivde.

Peace.... Blessings....

With a grateful heart, I am
