Hey everyone...

I have been visiting this site for almost a year now, ever since my bf disclosed his abuse to me. I came here hoping that reading the posts would somehow give me some insights into the issues that survivors and their loved-ones face. I finally decided to join MS! And I am very thankful this place exists! smile

I have many questions, and I sicerely hope that I will find some answers here. I am relatively "new" to the issue of abuse, I hope that I don't offend anyone with my lack of knowledge or understanding on the matter!

Peace and love x0x0x

Hi LittleNinja,

Welcome to MS! I wouldn't at all be concerned about offending anyone here due to your lack of knowledge. As I'm sure you have already seen, we are a very friendly and supportive group!


Recovery is Possible!

Little Sister;

Welcome aboard and may you be blessed in your search for answers. I pray for you to be fearless in asking questions. I am certain of so few things, and one is that there is far more that a do not know than I do know.

With Love, Wes

Happy to be a recovering survivor. :-)

Hi and congratulations on your first post, it was a long time coming smile. Ask all the questions you want, there's not a doubt in my mind that you will find answers and if you don't find answers, you'll find support....actually, I'm sure it will be both!

ROCK ON.......Trish
