Hi ! I’m new

Hi I’m sageharris, I am a female and use the pronouns she/her.
 

I grew up being raped by my father. I went my whole life without telling anyone and it has been very hard to deal with. I finally decided to accept what happened to me and I have been very depressed and filled with anxiety.

 I’m ready to start my healing process and I thought this was the perfect place to help me express how I feel about what I’m going through. I really needed someone to share my story with and I felt that it would be more comfortable here. 

A little bit about myself is that im a 20 year old college student studying chemistry.

Hi Sageharris and welcome.

I am very sorry you've been thru trauma at the hands of someone you should have been protected by, not hurt by. Struggles and pain do seem to follow us, but this is a good place to start a path of healing. The members here are truly understanding and kind. You are not alone.

Feel free to look around the site and jump in when and where you are comfortable in doing so. There is no rush, just start where it's good for you. I wish you the best as you begin this journey of healing.

Welcome to AS, @Sageharris! I'm glad you found your way here, though I'm so terribly sorry for what you've been through that brought you here. I'm so sorry. :( You did not deserve what you experienced...especially to grow up with it as a child. Your father was supposed to be there for you and love you, not harm you. Working through the anxiety and depression can be very difficult (VERY), but you've come to the right place to start to get some help. I also suggest finding a therapist experienced in trauma if you haven't gotten one already. 

You'll find a lot of very kind and supportive people here. ❤️ You're not alone. Sending you positive vibes and wish you all the best with healing!
