Im 48 years old and it's taken me almost 30 years to stop ignoring my experience and this is my first step in dealing with it so.....yay me! Not quite ready to verbalise yet but I'm hoping this will get me started so thank you all for being out there.

Hello, I am taking my first steps also after years of being aware I was molested, but not knowing what really happened. Stay strong! So sorry you have to be here, too.

I am blessed now to have beautiful and supportive kids but I think it's time to do something with the monster in my closet. I enjoy my life but it's always there.
Can't thank you enough for your welcome. Without it I couldnt have typed the words. Have only told my kids so far and that took 20 years :-)

So sorry that happened to you. ((Hugs)) My kids are supportive, but still seem to not have a clue about what I am diagnosed with means. I hope opening up here will be good for you, and for me.
