Hi everyone. I'm new here and a little nervous about it. I'm 18 and in my first year of college. I was abused my two men. Two neighbors.. one of which we were so close he was a thrid grandfather to me. he was arrested and died in prison. The 2nd one well i just told about 8 months ago and he was arrested but the DA did not file charges because it happened a while ago. So he's not going to get in anymore trouble. The abuse went on for 4 1/2 years and once again when I was 12. I hope i can find some help here and futher my healing. I've been in therapy for 1 year and 5 months so maybe this can help me as well. I'm kinda nervous about being here but i think its a good place.....

Hi Kel,

Welcome to AS. I am glad that you are seeing a therapist, that is great. It can really help you to heal. Being in a support group, even on online one, can be incredibly healing.

Good and healing thoughts to you.
