Welcome here, Melli!

 

I'm sorry for the reasons you are here, what's led you to this site today. But, it's a great support, and connecting with other survivors is key, I believe, in being able to continue forward. It helps having people who understand.

Hi NCourtney........very nice to meet you! And I'm glad to be here. Yes, I definitely need to connect with other survivors because I stay too silent (part of that is due to my family's denial and their disparaging comments). It will be wonderful having others who understand.

 

Thank you for welcoming me......... :hi:

Hi Melli

When you have made 10 posts the 'share your story' is automatically open to you

 

So sorry for what brought you here, talking (well writing it down) has been an enormous help

to me, hope you find the same    :comfort:

Okay, great! I think I may already have 10 posts, so when I have some time tonight, maybe I can hop on the forum and read other people's stories.

 

Thanks for telling me!.......... :friends2:

Welcome to AS, melli! I am terribly sorry for what you have endured and that you have to be here. I know how it feels to live with a terrified little girl inside of you when all you want to do is stand strong. You are not alone!
Take care of yourself. I am here if you need anything.
Safe hugs, if okay.
