Hi Everyone

I just wanted to pop in and say hi. I was raped 19 years ago and only told someone about it a month ago. Believe me - pretending it did not happen is NOT the way to go!

I am tentative about being here, but right now the distance provided by an internet support group may be just what I need until I am ready to talk to people face-to-face.

Hey Ilonka,

I'm sorry for what happened to you :hug: I think you've certainly done the right thing by opening up about it, as hard as it is, in the long term it's certainly a great healing step, it allows you to take those first steps toward coming to terms with, and then overcoming what's happened, the first step to your healing :tealribbon:

Well done on coming here, and I look forward to seeing you here at AS :)

Hello llonka,

I'm new here too. I was raped in June and was sexually abused as a child. I have decided to come searching for a interent based group at the advice of my OB and my Hubby. I am very private about my life and feelings so this is very hard for me to be doing.
