Not Really Sure Were To Start..

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a newby!

I have read several posts and am SO very sad that so many people have endured such horrible pain and so many as young children. I feel blessed that I had a safe and loving world to grow in..

My life has taken a turn though, over the last few years. I was married young and had two children only to wake up at 30 and think- MY GOD IS THIS IT?? We divorced and over a long drawn out court case I have lost the custody of my son.. (Now 11) My ex husband poisoned him against me and it just got all so hard.. He was running away and we had the police involved several times.. I still cry everyday for him and havent seen him since 4th July 2010.. My daughter (14) lives with me and my husband and has no contact with her Father, not from my doing- he was just such an A***hole to her and she decided she was better off without him in her life.. Luckily she loves her Step Dad to bits and they have a really healthy and loving relationship..

My husband and I have 4 children together, sadly though we only see 2.. (I could explain it all but quite frankly it exhausts me and I live it!!!)

I have come to After Silence seeking comfort and guidence to build my relationship with my husband after being drugged and raped by a stranger a few years ago.. (have gone into details in other posts and not sure if I should elaberate in this forum?)

Anyhoo, just wanted to say Hi- introduce myself and say I am here and keen to do ALOT of healing and letting go.. Thanks
