Hello my name is Mary. I am 30 years old and I have 3 children. This is the first time I speak out and talk about bieng sexually abused. I'm not sure I'm doing the right thing but I hope with time I can become stronger and soon talk about my feelings. I've kept everything to myself so long that I really don't know how to start talking about what I'm feeling. All I know is that it's been so hard going through life trying to forget and pretending that your this happy person that everybody thinks they know while actually I feel so miserable, depressed, angry, and confused!
