Hi Emily, I was so fucking scared too, still am now a little, but it's not so bad now. when I first found the site I could barely look at it - the shame etc, as if someone had asked me to look at something really indecent or something.... but that bit's eased now. we're all here together, there's no judgement, I hope this site helps you. Hugs if ok x

I'm also new. At the beginning it is scary. Practice helps to get over the scary. Lots of support to help you along the way.

My sister is making me join because I still blame myself and I just want to forget it ever happened.  Today is my 1st day talking to really anyone else.
