I am sorry for your reason to be here, but also glad for you to have found MS.
You'll find many of us who also waited decades to finally address our past, and it's effect on us.
There is no time like the present.
I would suggest however that what happened to you was not your abuses, you did not do it, you are not responsible.
What was done to you, someone chose to do.
Clearing out the cobwebs is a great analogy, I like that, well said.
Welcome, take care, and when you're ready, speak your truth.
The MS community will be there to support you in whatever way they can.
Presence is the key, for all we have is now.
All we ever have is right now.
