Well I guess I just type here then.. With the New Year brings the real need to try to lay some demons to bed. I am English, although living in Canada. I have thought for a long time that I have dealt with my abuse quite well. Then now as I get older I believe that I convince myself that it kind of doesnt matter, that I was a different person then to who I am now. But I dont think that really solves anything. I dont have huge emotional difficulties-thankfully. I went ot see a counsellor a few years ago now, because I ended up in a abusive marriage. I needed to stop the cycle!! What ever that means. I have a son, who I love dearly.. He is the real one perfect thing I have done with my life. Oh no I'm starting to bable now. Sometimes this stuff is just difficult to get out so that it makes sense. Anyway I have a lot of memory gaps from my childhood. Lots of missing bits so I tend to jump from one thing to another without a smooth flow. Sorry. Oh no Ive been told to stop saying that. HA HA (Do you know what I mean)?
Anyway I am pleased to be here, (I still hope this is how you post messages though) not sure really.
