Hello everyone. My name is Jessica or Jess. I love tm and tmr and the 2 actors that play in them (Brendan and Rachel) also love Jhonny Depp. I'm also a Huge fan of Selena.

But anyways I've been sexually abused since I was 5 til I was 18, now I'm almost 19. But anyways like I was saying now he is in jail...thank goodness. But I always have that fear that he'll try to get out or will be in jail only for a few years ( but I hope he is in there forever) and plus I have been abused a few times in school.
Now when I'm around any guy it takes awhile to trust them...and when I go around guys, the fear comes back.

I'll go in more dep later...if you all want to hear it.

Hi Jess : -) welcome to AS, You'll find some of the most understanding, caring and supportive people here you could ever meet! Sorry you have a reason to be here.. but always glad to hear about another perp going to jail.

Also the anxiety/trust thing.. I think most if not all of us here suffer from that to some degree, understandably it sounds quite normal to the circumstance.
