A Chance To Confront My Past

Recommended Posts

I was sexually abused by both my aunt and uncle (along with my sister and my cousin) when I was 9. My aunt passed after a short battle with lung cancer 2 years ago and about 5 years ago my uncle committed suicide in their garage. The other day I was garage saleing on that side of town and I saw that the new owner was having a sale. It took me several min to get out of the car and make my way to the house and garage where my abuse took place but i went, I was shaking like a leaf but I went. The lady mentioned that she had done remodeling inside of the house. I figured that it should be different enough so I asked for a tour. It was Not different enough. The bathroom where we were forced to shower together when I was just a child was still there along with the curtains in the living room that were always closed. I thought I was ready, but I really wasn't. The flashbacks are now worse than ever. My man is very supportive but this is not something that he can understand. I just need someone to share my story and help me finish my last steps towards total healing (if there is such a thing).

My name is Lynn, and I am a member of the New Member Support Team. I just wanted to take the time to say welcome to After Silence. I am proud of you for taking this huge step in your healing. I know that confronting those places that haunt us is an important part of dealing with the past for some of us.

I hope that you find comfort and support here. I am glad that you have joined with us and look forward to getting to know you. If you need anything or have questions about the boards or how something works, please send me a personal message. I will gladly help in any way possible...also if you need someone to listen, let me know.

Take care,
