I am new to this forum. I am a survivor of incest and severe emotional abuse, neglect as well as physical abuse as a child.

I hope to be able to find emotional support and to offer support to others here.

I do not go out much except to go to the store or take my mother out shopping. I isolate and have no friends. I have not found a place in 3D that I feel comfortable or really fit in. I have not been able to connect to others very well for most of my life. Believing in anything is a big problem for me right now.

I look forward to meeting others here. --- songbird
