Hello Fellow Survivors And Members

I spent a lot of time with my grandparents when I was a child. I trusted them and loved them. I had sexual deviancy issues at a young age. I would try to inappropriately touch my cousins and other non-related kids my age. I also recall a day when I hid in my grandparent's room and touched myself. These memories were red flags that I wasn't equipped to be aware of or understand at the time.I've ruined many relationships because of sexual deviancy. I've also suffered from anxiety and depression since I was a child.
I had a very difficult time in school because I had trouble focusing. I now attribute this to what happened to me. At the time though, I just thought I was less intelligent than the other people around me. That made me feel very insecure, sad and hateful. School was a nightmare of an experience for me.
I feel very fortunate to live in a time where I can share my story, thoughts, feelngs and problems with other survivors from around the world via the internet. I look forward to reading other people's stories and hopefully improving myself alongside other people on this site.
