... who welcomed me when I first posted. I have to apologize as I never posted a reply, however the reason for this is simple: I had forgotten my login (LOL). It took me forever to find the bit of paper that I had written it down on...

I am still unsure how to start. I feel a bit intimidated by the rules and guidelines... don't want to mess it up right from the start, I guess. I have already healed a lot and am not at a very vulnerable place right now, but I find conversation with other women who have made similar experiences to my own helpful in dealing with everyday life issues. I sometimes also get a strong urge to talk about what happened to me, but on the other hand I find it no burden at all to listen to other survivors. In fact I think listening to other survivors (as opposed to talking about myself) has probably furthered my healing more than any other single step I have chosen to take in order to heal.

I have told you nothing about myself... I am 32 (since yesterday LOL), live with my girlfriend and her kids, and hold a part time job which helps me keep my sanity. I was a*used as an adult.

This shall suffice for today, I am unsure how much I am allowed to say in here and also I don't want to bore you guys to death thumbsup.gif

Thanks again for the replies, you are all so sweet!!!!!!!!!!!

Please don't be intimidated by the rules, they are just general guidelines we have written for the protection of the members. I hope you'll find that there is a lot of freedom here and respect for anyone's feelings and point of view. If you have any specific question or doubt feel free to send me or any of the moderators a PM smile.gif

I hope you'll find support and healing here.

Just to let you know... I'm going on holiday and won't have access to a PC until next Saturday. I will try to write more regularly upon my return, so we can get to know each other a bit better.

Take good care of yourselves, see you next week...

Hugs Una
