Hi everyone,

I just thought I'd introduce myself, I'll be going by the name of Boo. I was abused by my ballet teacher for several years and I want to say that its good that things like this exist because I know that as a victim you feel alienated from the rest of society and its comforting to know that there are people who do understand and who support others.

Hi Boo - welcome.

So sorry you have experienced something like this. The neverending ways that people prey on children is Astonishing. I can think of a scene from the movie "misery" that teacher would deserve. :mad:

I wish you much healing..

P.S. Your screen name "Boo" is Wonderful - It was a nick name for my most faithful companion ever..... So, even not knowing you - it made my heart smile. Thank you for that.:s:
