dance.gif you go banana,
well i am new to this site and hope to get to know some friends who will help me discover who i am. as a 30 year old female i just cannot get over my 10 years of sexual abuse and rape by the man who adopted me when i was 2 and stayed there until i was 12 and my best friends mom rescued me from him. i am torn in emotions about it because i love him but hate the way i feel. i don't even think the physical act of abuse is as hard as the emotional trama i have spent my life trying to overcome. i am having a hard time. i hope i can get some help and enlightenment here. thanks. pink.
