Hi Sarah!

I am so sorry you have a reason to be here!  I am also very glad you reached out and have come to this community. You will find thtre are many accepting, caring, and supportive survivors here ready to listen.  I was new here in January and have found this to be an amazing community.  Just take  your time to explore and when you are ready you will know how much and when to share. Take gentle care!

Thanks everybody. I'm surprised there are so many of us here! It's scary how alone I feel all the time but I'm ready to take control of my life back.

Welcome! I hope you find AS as helpful in your healing journey as I did. When I first started here there was only one person who knew that I had been abused. She didn't even know ANY details. Now, I have been in therapy for years and have begun the process of sharing my story with her and it has been the most helpful and powerful experience. You can get your life back - it is a matter of how hard you work for it and how badly you want it!
