We were there with you. Thank you for sharing. Disclosure makes us stronger because we face that risk and survive.

Every disclosure after your first is infinitely easier. Nowadays, when it comes up and I feel a need to disclose, I say: "I was raped when I was a kid..." That is the best language for me.

I'll be just fine and dandy
Lord, it's like a hard candy Christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But I won't let sorrow get me way down.
