Dear one. My history is similar though my adult rape took place only a few years ago.

I'm glad you started talking here. Bringing these things out into the light within a safe environment can begin the process of freeing you from all the darkness and pain. (((hugs)))

welcome to the board, glad you found us, though so sorry you have need to be here.

Finding your voice and starting to talk about the abuse is like a key in a door. Once you turn it, the door peeks open and healing rushes in.

You are breaking that silence that has enslaved you all these years. Think of it this way, you have been keeping their secrets all these years, a burden you should never have been saddled with.

You will find your strength returning now that you have made the choice to get on the healing path. Even speaking out here is a step.

Don't stop now, keep talking. Talk here, talk to other professionals, other survivors etc.

Take back your power.

Peace be the journey

I'm sorry you are having a hard time getting started with a therapist. It's frustrating waiting to hear how soon you can get an appointment with someone, especially after making the huge decision to work through these painful parts of your life. I hope you are able to start with someone soon.

I'm fairly new to this community, and I hope you find this group as supportive and encouraging as I have.
