I'm hoping that by interacting with peop It's been fifteen years since I was abused, and I thought I had dealt with it... Apparently, I was wrong.

le who have been through similar experiences, I can finally put this to rest. 

 

Just call me Athvanja. 

 

Not really sure what else to say in terms of introduction since this part is public.  :)

Yeah... not so much.  Rather  frustrated actually.  I have these epiphanies, and I think I'm healed, and then I'm not.  *sigh*

I understand that all too well. Be gentle with yourself. Just know you're not alone.
