Hi All,

Just wanted to intro myself to the site. Its been 25 years since I was first abused, which carried on for another 4 or 5 years with 2 family members. It has been a very confusing life for me so far...I have been great at masking this up to the point where i didn't acknowledge it for a long time. Well, with the help of this forum so far, I am coming to terms with this, and I am ready to move on...Im done living in this prison of my own mind, and enjoy life, and hopefully with someone else! I am realizing now, that my experiences of big difficulties starting new relationships (intimate or not) with other people is likely all related to my abuse. I will be posting soon in some other forums as I would really value some of your input. Just from what I have read so far, it has really helped me from a dark place to see the light so to speak.

I look forward to talking with you all soon!

Welcome to the forums and thanks for posting. "Confusing life" is probably something a lot of us, myself included, can relate to.

I definitely could have written this intro. My abuse started when I was about 13 and I am now 44. I did the "normal" thing till last year when I knew there had to be more to life than what I was pretending and not feeling. I look forward to reading your stuff. I will be posting my story soon and I look forward to doing it.

My wife is from Ontario.

I see that you did post your story. That was brave and i'm sure helped someone. Makes me want to write and post mine soon. Sorry that stuff happened to you. Sounds like you are on the right track.

Good luck with everything!

Thanks for sharing. I just joined the site tonight. So much confusion, suppressed anger and loneliness going on. On the positive side, when I lose my sh*t I often get lost in work, which makes me most productive!

Ultimately, I want to understand who I am. I don't want to be defined by my past. And I want to see the beauty in life and add to it. Thanks to everyone here. Just knowing you're there makes a difference.

welcome to you too, bowen.

those are excellent goals.

clear and well defined.

the good news is, you can and will achieve these objectives, just by putting them out there and keeping your "eyes on the prize"!

Thanks Victor-v. Trying to figure out where to start. My therapist wants me to retrace every step. Hard to do when I've spent 35 years trying to forget them.

Hey Bowen. I just joined too. Posted a few things and submitted my story this evening - big step for me. Kind of freaking out about it internally as it takes awhile to get approved and then posted.

While not happy about the circumstances that bring you here it's comforting to know others are finding a place that so far in a short period of time has been very helpful to me.

Hope it is for you as well.
