Hello all. Yes I am finally ready to truly confront what happened to me 45 years ago as a child.  I am also ready to realize that what happened has caused many issues for me.  I have been able to only tell 2 people what happened to me.  One of the people being my husband who I have hurt deeply with some of the long term effects of what happened.  Sorting all of this out is very hard and painful for me.  I am glad that I have found this site and am hopeful that the support will help me to be the me I desperately want to be

Welcome to AS. 5 years may sound like a long time but I'm sure those memories are still fresh. Talking about what happened and taking control of your memories will help you.
