    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I hope that you will feel at home and safe in this community.

    None of us are probably experts on psychology, but among the folks here, we have each been through a lot of different stuff. So maybe some can share with you and listen to you. At least you will not feel so alone and isolated.

    Hi there friend7889, I have posted in a previous post regarding the same situation. except that I was 12 at the time I was sexually abused by an adult male. I wont go into full details on this post however I have recently (3-4 years ago) worked with a therapist that helped me deal with some self-deteriorating issues... I am also 38. like you I supressed my feelings for years.. it is unhealthy.. (mentally and physically) I too am taking anti-depressants and sometimes feel like a hermit at home by myself all the time... if you would like to talk more my email is indsmx@aol.com, thanks
