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!
