Hey everyone,

I'm new here and I hate writing these things so I'll be short with it! If you have any questions, please just ask. I'm not shy, I just don't really know what to say! ;)

I'm here because I don't feel comfortable talking about what happened to me almost two years ago with people IRL. I don't want people to look at me funny and I guess I almost wonder if it was my fault somehow or even if it really happened the way I remember.

In any event, I am in a relationship and I want to deal with this all somehow without leaning too hard on my new man. I guess I really want to figure out how I can get past this and have a normal healthy relationship. And, since I am a total nerd, where else would I turn but the internet! ;)

Thanks, and I look forward to getting to know everyone better and being allowed access to other parts of the forum.
