Welcome Cidnie!

You've taken an important step just in coming here and beginning to talk about it. Talking helps to empower you to heal.

Hi Cidine,

Add me to the list of Welcome's.

Glad you googled us.

It is not a morbid intro you did. You are family. We understand where you are coming from.

Read, chat and write as you are able. You already met some of the good guys and there are many more.

Thank you for the welcome, everyone. Went ahead and posted my story. Might as well get it out, right? I imagine you'll be hearing more from me in the way of autobiographies...writing has always been a sort of detached way for me to get things out.

Cidnie,

I just want you to know I read your story. That was a brave thing you did to tell all that, and I am so sorry this happened to you. I think it's good to get this crap out in the open like this. When we do that we are reclaiming our voice, rejecting the silence, and throwing the blame back to those who hurt us. Well done.

Much love,
Larry

Cidnie,

Welcome also. I am new here also but not to the pain, shame, and guilt you feel. I too was sexual abused (raped) many, many times by my older brother and his friend for two years when I was 10 and 11. How many times I don't know - but it only takes once. It has taken me 35 years to get past the disassociation and put things back into my conscious mind. I too am sorry you have to be here - but it is so much better than "where" I was and I am sure better then "where" you are.

I bid you Peace.
