This is our second Christmas without the abuser......it's so bitter sweet. I never imagined I'd be a single mother in a million years and its lonely on nights like this. On the flip side I am proud that I've pulled off another great Christmas for my kids all on my own. Can't wait for them to open all their gifts!
Hi and sorry I'm just reaching out for some confirmation here, really.I was sexually abused as a child but didn't know it until I was 21. I know how that sounds, like I'm making it up. I'm not. Do you believe me?The thing is, I couldn't cope with the abuse. It was painful and frightening and I didn't understand what was happening, not when I was a little girl anyway. So I think I kind of shut it...
Hi allI only found this place yesterday and - to my own surprise - registered instantly. I'm usually skeptical of internet forums.I'm impressed and grateful for the respectful and supportive attitude of everyone here. It makes me feel I'm not alone and it makes me feel it's safe to speak up.Thank you, everyone.
