Though you say we don't/can't know how each other feel you have described my feelings very accurately. I can't trust anyone, I want to so badly though. I want physical contact with people, but the only time it doesn't send shivers through me is when it's with a woman I'm seeing. I can't even remember exactly when my abuse occurred or how many times, but like you it has haunted me ever since. I can still see the places and smell the scent of it, it makes me sick. It seems like every day lately I've been fighting with myself just to keep going, to not give up. Heal well and don't give up.

Just re-visiting this post from last I have a new dog and I love her. She is very comforting and safe for me...I still appreciate all this feedback from last year. This was much needed and going back through this helps me see how far in a year I've come!
Thanks guys.
