OK... here goes... OK.. I'm just going to say hi and I'm a bit emotional right now. If you could please go to the survival stories I will post there as to what I need help with. Just don't feel comfortable posting on a public forum. Thanks![FONT=Arial][COLOR=purple]

I don't think anybody even really needs to say sorry for any thing to do with abuse here, so hope that being here helps with your healing journey...Take care hug.gif hug.gif

I just wanted to say thank you for all the kind replies. Thank you all for welcoming me with open arms. I have spent most of the day reading posts and crying. My healing is just beginning even though my abuse was along time ago. I think this board will be a good place for me to be me.

Welcome, sweetie. I'm glad that you've found us. Most of the fourms on the board are private - which means that ONLY members can view them.

Stay safe - and we're here for you when you want to talk.
