hi group!!!! Im a new member just posting for the first time. my screen name is Mr. Sims15 after a radio DJ tha gave me great solace during the years when I was abused. that was when I was in my early teens. I am now middle aged and am still greatly affected by the abuse of that time and childhood. It was principally of a sexual nature although I was pretty badly assaulted and beaten up by bullys in school for years. Im told survivors of sexual abuse commonly experience difficulty with self protection as a result of the abuse. I am diagnosed w/ PTSD and have really uncomfortable disturbing thoughts of seeking revenge against my attackers to the point where I cant achieve peace within. just need someone to talk to. would also like to be of help to others if I can.
