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!
