Hi.My name is Titijana and I don't know if I would call myself an incest/rape survivor because I don't think I'm really surviving.

I'm here to hopefully get better and maybe find peace.

Tatijana, you are a survivor, you have found us, which means you want and are surviving, you are reaching out for help, that is surviving.
I am so glad you have found us, and hope you settle down here quickly.

Take Care
Love Catherine

Hi Tatijana,

Welcome to the group. I am quite new, too, and I have found this to be a safe supportive place.

I hope you do find peace, and I am sure that you are a survivor.

((( Hugs )))

Tatijana,

I feel the same way. It's been terribly difficult trying to live a "normal" and happy life after going through years of abuse and more years of hiding the truth.

We both found this site...I hope it helps both of us (all of us) find inner peace and the power to survive.
