Hi there! :penguin:
I am so glad I came across this site! I was always too afraid to talk about the sexual abuse I endured as a child. The first and only person I've told is my current boyfriend (who has been incredibly supportive and referred me to this site). I was reluctant to join at first because I have much difficulty in sharing my thoughts, but I am tired of hiding. This seems like a very friendly and supportive community and I look forward to making progress with all of you.
