Yea for you!
What a frightening and wonderful first step. Congratulations, good for you. I remember the first time I told someone; it was awful. It does get better. ((())) I remember that after I had told several people, they all said the same thing - oh how awful. Then I told my cousin, we are about 6 weeks apart. She reached out and hugged me. What a wonderful feeling. To be hugged and loved for something I thought was so horrible and degrading. All the terrible things, she knew, and she still loved me. Keep talking. Each time you tell your story you will get louder and louder. Itís a wonderful feeling.
In others we find strength to face our monster, in helping others we can become the giant that defeats the monsters.
