My dear Erin,


My heart breaks for you. I'm only a loving husband of a survivor. I've only recently posted my "hello" post. You posting here was a first step. Very brave. Continue to reach out for help. There is help and there is hope. You are no less pretty and certainly NOT weak. You survived. You are to be admired.

Im so very sorry for what those foul,soulless animals did to you. I too am struggling with the notion of being pretty again. My attack happened nearly three years ago and its only just now that recovery has begun to happen for me...and it comes in tiny crumbs that I have to fight for tooth and nail. That being said,I can tell you this:the fight is worth it. You will have times where you want to lie down and die. But you cant let them win. If you want to message me just to scream or talk about your puppy-if you have one-or even discuss what you had for breakfastim a great listener and my inbox is always open. I usually check in at least once a day.

Hi Dear

I am so sorry to hear what those evil sociopaths did to you.

I hope you can start to heal. You have the strength in you, you have to fight back!

I know it is a painful journey but you can do it.

Try and be kind to yourself. None of this was your fault.

Remember what a beautiful woman you are.

See if you can make it to at least one class a day, baby steps

You are in my prayers

Take care of you

I'm not even sure what to say. It took me all week to work up the courage to come back here. I'm overwhelmed. I read through your responses over and over. Your kindness and support is more than I ever imagined getting. Saying I'm strong and brave and that I'm no less pretty and to remember what a beautiful woman I am. I sobbed until there was nothing left. I've been so alone. Thank you all so much. From the bottom of my heart thank you.
