Without Pandys I would not be here, and I would have felt so isolated and alone much longer than I have.

I wouldn't understand how to process most of the feelings I've experienced since the abuse, and I wouldn't know that these feelings are normal for what I went through.

I also wouldn't have the network of support that I receive from all of you, or the courage to even talk about any of these things, either online or IRL. So thank you Pandy's.

Without Pandys, I wouldn't have realized it was possible to have friends who could completely relate to me. With those friends, I don't have to hide anything at all about myself. No matter if we stay in touch frequently or get caught up in surviving, it was a beautiful thing discovered.

Without Pandy's I never would have realized that the pain I felt from being raped is inside of each of us who experience such trauma. I never really was alone!

Without Pandy's I would have..... well been more isolated,and Probably would have done the stupidest thing I could have possible done to try to end my pain. With pandys.org I have with the help of my T learned that it is ok to to cry bout it. It okay to feel what I feel. It only makes me human.

Without Pandy's I think I would still be the scared little girl I was back when I first joined and not the strong woman I am learning to love now :)

Without Pandys, I would still be confused, alone, and isolated, ever abnormal, never accepted.

without Pandy's, I'd still believe that I was crazy and feel consistently misunderstood by the people around me.

I know I'm not very far along in my recovery, but Pandy's has encouraged me to continue seeing my psychiatrist, to be strong and stand up to my abuser, to actively seek a new place to live, and to even speak out and talk to other people about what has happened to me. I have a long way to go, but I feel like I wouldn't have gotten this far without the support from Pandy's. :)

without Pandy's, I wouldn't have admitted to my abuse the first time since ever and realized it was a problem that just wouldn't go away.

Without Pandys... I would never have been able to identify what happened to me in 2002 as a form of rape. I would not have learned to validate myself and my experiences. And I would be almost completely alone in trying to cope with the rape that happened this past December.
