Hi
I've never talked about my abuse to anyone in depth and I always feel like it is eating me alive.
I hope it's okay to be here as I just need some understanding.
Will try to post more later, for now too shaky.

Hi Laina, That's a very beautiful name.

Welcome to the site.
I know that feeling of eating away at you - not a good one at all. hug.gif
Sorry you're wrestling with that. Please feel free to relax- take your time reading and post whenever you are ready.


Wishing you much healing,
Balue

Hey Liana,

welcome to the boards smile.gif . i understand the way you are feeling, i haven't talked to many people about my abuse and if i have talked to them...it's only bits and pieces....never the whole thing. this is a really great place, hope to see you around the boards alot.

((Liana))

What a pretty name. -smiles- I'm sorry, I know that must get just a bit old. ((safe hugs)) I know the feeling about not being able to tell anyone about what happened. Just know that we're glad that you're here, and that you've found us. I'm sorry you've endured so much. Take your time to talk about what happened -- no one here is going to push you to talk about things you don't want to.

Best wishes and a warm welcome.

<3
Alex
