Hi everyone,

I have spent most of my life feeling lost. This last year has been a year of growth in so many ways. I have found strength and purpose. Though every day is a struggle I am on my way to finding meaning. The other day I realized the topic of sexual abuse is so taboo people either ignore it or feel uncomfortable when they hear about it. I went on a long search on the internet and here I am. Ready to talk and to listen.

Thank you both. I hope so too. I have recently decided to go to school after 10 years to get my degree in psycology. To help children of abuse and adults who never got the help they needed as children like myself and so many others. My goal here is to provide support and also to work on myself. I have done alot of self reflection over the last 4 months. I am learning to become stronger. But there is still alot of work to be done. I look foward to communicatng with all of you and supporting eachother.
