Well I guess I'll take the plunge. I'm a 46 year old survivor of abuse by multiple perpetrators. I thought I had dealt with all that years ago but over the last two years I've begun to realize how profoundly it still affects me everyday. I'm hoping to find peace and a new sense of happiness and fulfillment.

Hey, strider!

welcome - another 2-fer here! i too was abused by multiple perps and i too thought i'd dealt with it - in my case in my mid-30s. now it's 20-some years later and i'm trying to chop the heads off the hydra again! maybe this time we can do it once and for all!

the support here is incredible and i have leaarned and grown so much as the result of interaction.

may your experience be all that you hope for.
Lee

It is a sad welcome always but I can tell you that this place has helped me so much in knowing I am not isolated in my issues or recovery. I have just a few years on you and also was a victim of several perps.
