Hi, my mother found this forum a while ago and I have finally gotten the courage up to write in.
I'm nearly 17, homeschooled, and now live in Washington with my parents and brother.
I was abused by my ex-uncle for many years; my family was also abused by him.
After we moved up here I stopped working at remembering much, not good... soon I started to become anorexic, fortunately my mother noticed this and talked to me about it. I'm doing much better in that area now.
Oh, and if anyone wants the perp's social security number
you're welcome to it. laugh.gif

((((((Kelsie)))))) It's a pleasure to meet you! What a great supportive mother you have. You're very lucky to have someone like that. My mother and I fight a lot and don't really agree on very much but she has been extremely supportive of me ever since I disclosed a few years ago.
I too have been down the anorexia road and she helped with that too.
I hope to talk to you more in the future :-)

Thanks ever so much for all your wonderful responses. Yes, my mother is incredibly supportive, and has been one of the main ones trying to stop Ted(the perp), and it looks as if that could be soon.
This forum is great, I can't wait to get to know all of you better. :b:
