I just wanted to introduce myself. I am 21 years old and I lost my virginity when I was 6 years old to my neighbor who was in his forties. It lasted for 4 years ubtil he had a heart attack and eventually died.

I honestly believe one of the most frustrating things in life is being a survivor of sexual abuse because it seems that so many people are totally ignorant about the whole thing and have no idea how serious it really is. I really don't believe that anyone can understand how horrible and painful it is unless you have been through it, which is why I am very happpy to finally be talking to some people who actually get it 100%! I'm looking forward to meeting and talking to you all :-)
