Hi everybody,


My name is Kassi and I am new.  I would like to share a little about myself and I look forward to hearing from you.


Isolated in a tiny Texas Town I became the victim of devastating sexual, physical, and emotional abuse.  Sexually abused by my father, my grandfather and my brother I was also the object of my father's pent up rage.  Hopelessly captive in a prison of pain I witnessed the battering and neglect of my brothers and sisters.


I was abused from the ages of 2 (as closely as I can figure it) to 17.  The men who hurt me were the very ones I should have been able to trust the most.  Mine was a shattered life, one so fragmented that I developed DID.


Thank you for letting me post part of my story.
