Hey, my name is Jen and I'm a survivor. I've never posted though I've been around here and other Tori boards. I am at a scary time in my life right now, facing deep shadows that haven't been out of the basement in awhile, some to do with being abused as a child and some not. I have no kindred spirits around anymore to share the growing pains and giggles with. Funny how when you are at your rawest times is when the crowds seem to clear the fastest. So I thought I would try coming here as us Tori people usually have the capacity to understand eachother. smile.gif
hoping and looking forward to getting to know all of you.

This place is full of kind,warm generous people, I wish we had no need of such a place but having got to know these guys I wouldn't have missed getting to know them one little bit..So I see that as a great positive straight away..
So I hope Dusk that you find some measure of comfort here and that it helps in any small way to your healing path hug.gif throb.gif

Welcome... I know how hard it is to be dealing with the past after you have been abused and it really has helped me to pour out my feelings here and to be supported and told that they are valid. It is a hard road to recovery but I have recently learned that it doesn't need to be alone. I hope you find this place to be helpful and a place with which you can express yourself. Congratulations on taking the step to meet others.
Sincerely, Krissy

thank you to everybody for the warmest of welcomes. I've been posting and feel like there are people here who really understand and that is so rare or has been for me. It's difficult even writing on a computer to strangers about my life but I feel safe doing so here. I'm looking forward to talking more with everybody.
