This page is for Sexual Abuse Survivor's Whatever I can find that is helpful to the healing of the abuse I will put on this page.......and yes...it's for my healing also. I have found some pages here on the net that have helped me tremendously with my journey and I want to share them with others. I hope you find something here that will help you with your healing, or help you understand and support someone with theirs. Sexual Abuse is widely spread and the damage it causes lasts for a lifetime.....there is never total healing for the victims. We survive it ... we don't know how we do it... or why sometimes... but we do. Some of the contents here can be triggering for some survivors, so be safe..you can always come back when you are stronger.

I Survived They took it from me A childlike innocence A feeling of trust A belief in fairness A true definition of love They gave it to me Pain and humiliation Confusion and fear Hatred of men Distrust, anger I gave them, unknowingly, unwillingly My virginity My self-respect My pride and dignity My promise of silence I kept for myself A determination to survive My sense of "ME" buried deep inside My soul, shredded but complete My instincts, unused but there They couldn't destroy me I survived And I'm stronger than ever

             I've added this bulletin board for your use. 
             Let me know if you find any others.
