Without Pandy's, I would still be too petrified to even think about sharing my story.

I'd never have learnt what being 'gentle to myself' meant. I don't think I'd ever have managed it.

I would have never learnt that I too can become a survivor. There is so much hope and encouragement here. I love it.

Without Pandy's, I wouldn't have anywhere to share some of the hardest parts of my struggles.There's no other place like this unique, special community of compassionate survivors. I wouldn't have been able to say, "I belong here," or realize how much these things affected my life. I wouldn't have been able to express some of the toughest truths, find that I'm not alone, or overcome my denial. Gosh, I owe Pandy's so much. Thank you so much for being here. It's made a world of difference in my life and in my healing.

Without pandy's I would be lost in the sea of my past with no light to find my way out.

Without Pandy's, I probably would have given up on myself by now

Without Pandy's I would be missing my three children with no place to go to get my mind off my grief. Love, Salemkitty

Without Pandy's I would have yet to meet some of the strongest, most encouraging, interesting, and warm people in my life.

Without Pandy's I would not have met my partner. We are both survivors and are celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary this year :)

Without Pandys, I wouldn't have met the people on here I have that helped me through so much. I just want to say thank you for helping me find my voice and start to realize things about myself. And thank you for being there and offering great advise.

Without knowing of Pandie's I would never have faced up to what happened to me. I would never have confronted my mother about what she let happen to me and what she did to me. 

 

A day after confronting her I reported the abuse to the police. I gave my video interview 2 weeks later then came back home and found Pandies again and I joined. Thank you so much for letting me join.

 

I found Pandie's by typing the question "why do mothers let their daughters be abused" into the google search engine, and your site was in the list of answers. Thank you all so much for being here.
