Hey everyone.

 

I'm Alexis and I'm a survivor of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. After years of silence and being unable to tell anyone anything, I finally have the voice to do so. This is a huge step, and I'm nervous but excited that this could help me become the person I've desperately wanted to be for so long. I'm not going to hide away anymore, it's definitely time to speak out. 

 

I'm looking forward to meeting other survivors and hopefully making new friends as a result. I've always been unable to talk to people due to my past as I feared being judged (which happened once before) but I hope this will be a huge change.

 

Hope everyone is doing well!
