My First Post

Recommended Posts

I'm new also. I found this site while searching for support.

I went to therapy for a while years ago. After years of struggling with therapy, I buried things again.

I was just ok, going through life but with issues. 6 months ago, I found out one of my abusers was physically abusing my mom and I decided to stand up for her.

We go to court in 2 weeks against the person who physically abused mom.

I've never confronted the 4 living people who abused me, and my mom does not know my story.

I am so glad I found this support site.

I am trying to be strong but my world is coming unglued again. I hope to hear from another survivor who may have had to "rip the bandage off", so to speak. I have to find the strength to tell mom my story.

Right now, I am finding it difficult to even type the words "he sexually abused and raped me".

Hi moves2much,

Welcome to Aftersilence :tealribbon:

Your post is full of so much courage. It's great that you are supporting your mom, but amongst all this please do not forget about yourself.

I know those last few words are scary, but you're just taken away all the power from him. Hang in there.
