Hello. I am a wife/mother/childabuse survivor. I just found this site through another abuse survivors site. I am glad I found a safe place where I can share my past/present/future. I am very shy and leary of bearing my soul. So I will lurk for a while. sad.gif

Thank you for giving me the time to open up. It's just that I've been burnt so many times before. I'm just taking it one day at a time. Thank you for your support.

Hugs,
Broken

Welcome to After Silence, sweetie! Take your time posting. Mustering up trust is hard when you've been abused.
