I have had a really hard time starting a topic about myself. I guess I dont think my abuse was as bad as what some other people here. Also a few yrs ago I wrote down everything I could remember about my abuse. It was very hard I guess Im just not ready to go back into all that, even though it helped me sooo much and I know that it would help again if I share here. I dont have a problem replying to others. I hope I am helping. I have gotten a few thank yous from people saying I really helped. Of course no ones the same I hope Im not offending anyone if I am Im sorry. I dont know I guess im just not ready to post too much about what happened to me.
Thank you for this thread! I just joined recently, and went into the introductions section. All of a sudden i clammed up and freaked out and just couldn't say anything about myself or anything I've experienced. Not even a simple hi to everyone. This thread makes me feel more at ease to know I'm not the only one who feels this way.
I think this thread is a great idea to, i'm really nervous abouting posting sometimes, it took me a while to post in the introductions section to but this is a little confidence boost or something like that i guess
