Just a short introduction post. I hope I can find support and help in my journey towards recovery. I was abused by my parents most of my childhood. Sexually abused by my father between the ages of 6 to 13 years. Lots of domestic violence. I don't understand how that's possible. They seemed "nice" on the outside. The sexual stuff hurts the most today although it has been over 10 years. I'm in therapy. It's not going well. I hope this is a nice support group. I'm sure it is.

It does get better.  Not completely.  Never completely.  But it does get better.  I'm glad you're here.
