Hello, this is my first time here and I am eager to find some support. It happened twenty years ago when I was fourteen but it's recently started affecting me daily in ways I haven't experienced before. I haven't been able to find a therapist in my area that accepts my insurance and I'm hoping to find some kind of support here.

Glad a site like this exists and that I am not alone.

Hi there lemon, sorry for the reason you are here, but it is a good first step for you. I know what you are going through I was 6 and it started coming out right before I turned 42. You are not alone, I hope you can find a therapist,and the people here are wonderfully supportive!
