Hi my name is Danny & I'm a new member led to this site by a news article. I'm trying to survive the after shock of abuse that me & my children suffered from my father, as well as the abandonment & reaction to me from the rest of my family members. I'm trying to keep moving on a path of healing for me & my family and trying to navigate all the feelings I have in relation to this. Hopefully this site my help. Peace!

but this MS site and these people can help.

Welcome Crushed Heart,

Your name says alot....Welcome to MS.

Recovery starts with breaking the silence about what happened. You've already taken that step. I'd suggest finding a therapist experienced with childhood trauma to help you work through the issues you describe. You may find other issues to deal with in the process. In the meantime, read the posts here, and write some of your own when you feel able to. MS has been a huge help to me in recovery, and I hope you find what you need here.

Jude

Welcome to the site Danny. I can't add much to what others have said, but can say being here and working with a therapist has helped me a lot in my own healing process. I signed up here last July and started therapy in the fall, and I know it is possible to sort out the hurts and confusion and find healing. Welcome brother, my hope is you will find comfort, support and understanding here as I have.
