Hi I'm New Too
Posted 01 June 2004 - 02:26 PM
I'm new to this site. I am a 37 year old female and just starting therapy to deal with my childhood abuse issues and chemical dependency. I have 2 months sober after having a few years here and there. I am an incest survivor, if survivor means you are still alive. I am trying to learn to heal from the repressed feelings so I can live a drug and alcohol free life. More than just drug free, I'd like to learn how to live a spiritual life. So, I'm hoping to make some new friends here. Soon I will try to post my story in the proper catagory. Looking forward to meet some of you soon.
