hello, i just wanted to introduce myself as i feel very scared and new to this. i have been abused all my life or up until i was 19, i'm 22 now and finally told somebody who got me help, i have been seeing a therapist for 18 months now, and finally, i feel like things will be ok. i was so overwhelmed at finding this site and realising i'm not alone in my troubles, anyway - enough about me, i just wanted to say hi. blink.gif
