So what I needed. That is so touching, tears come to my eyes, and that is a daunting feat!
This place is most certainly a blessing, I am so happy to have found it and really, don't know what I would do if I hadn't.
I also often feel I still deserve the blame,I knew him, I knew what was going on, he said I wanted it, and I was too hot, too sexy to not, I invited it, and..... that I should be so over it by now.
I need those reminders that it wasn't my fault, as painful as it can be.
Knowing that there are people who care, comfort, and support, and truly understand is so reassuring and wonderful.
Thank you so much.
**safe grateful hugs**

it's all different when you are surrounded by safety and understanding. ....but i'm still wearing my clothes! ;)
and btw, i was wondering if lou was allowed to make so many of us cry like that????;) however, i suppose she was ALLOWING us to shed the good tears that we so seldom feel. (((sweet lou)))
besides....she has 5 friggin kids! she's allowed to do about anything!
(((hugs to all)))
