Hi!

my name is conny, I'm from austria (europe) and I'm 19 years old.
when I was a little child - my dad beated me very often.. my mum didnt noticed that (& she still doesnt know anything.. its "an old story")
in summer 2002 I was raped... I'm still not able to talk about it... I've many flashbacks... mostly in the evening.. when everything gets quiet around me...
It bother(s) me, if someone touches me.. especially if the one is behind me and touches me.. I always get a goose flesh..
I started hurting my self... I think the english-definition is "Self-Injury"...

mhm... what else.. ask if you want to know anything..

Conny,

welcome to the group!

Please make yourself at home and take all the time you need, you don't have to talk about anything you are not confortable with.
It is damn difficult to keep going and to heal but others before us, have made it through this and so will we!

Hugs,
Verena

Hi Connyx

I just joined the board too. I am glad you have found this place because there is a lot of support here. I can relate to you with your father because mine did the same to me and to my other siblings..and abused my mom emotionally for a very long time. I am sorry for all you have to go through. I was also raped in 2002 by an ex boyfriend. I really hope that you can heal and feel safe here. Best Wishes.
