Welcome, Jw...

feel free to share as much or as little as you are ready for - at whatever time you feel like it. there is a great diversity here in the amount that people share and in the details of their experiences. what we have in common is the shared bond of abuse.

you will find understanding, acceptance, support, information, validation, and friendship here. it has been a major factor in whatever progress i have made.

others will give you valuable insights and advice as well.
you are among friends,

"the scariest thing about abuse of any shape or form, is, in my opinion, not the abuse itself, but that if it continues it can begin to feel commonplace and eventually acceptable."
