Hi

Hi
I’m new here. I really don’t know how to begin.
I was sexually abused by my neighbor. It went on for a couple of years from when I was about 7-8 years old.
He used to come to my home and take me to my room or to the basement. Undressing me, touching me, shoving things into my body. Always asking me “am I hurting you?”. Telling me to touch him. Inviting his friends along for the party. He messed me up. When I grew I stopped it. My mom was in her on world. Probably to depressed to see anything.

Hi Bella

You are among friends here. It's not unusual to feel a bit anxious and exposed when people first start to share their stories here. Please know that, whatever your experience, there is someone who can relate to it in some way. There is no comparison or judgement in this place.

Thanks for the welcoming. I don’t know if I even know yet what it is I’m looking for. My all life I had cycles of up and down. Now I’m starting the down one. I do things that pushes me there half knowing. Can’t stop myself.
