I’m a survivor of child sexual abuse and after a very long time, I’ve finally been able to find a therapist willing to help me. God was who prompted me to get the help after trying unsuccessfully for so many years. I’m now involved in a couple of support groups — one specifically for sexual abuse — but it seems that this is not enough.
I’m still battling the depression and the deep dark places that my mind goes all due to the abuse. I don’t feel safe at home despite the fact that I live alone. I don’t trust anyone and I have a hard time making friends.
One of the women in the abuse support group stated she was posting about her journey on social media and so I decided to take the plunge and do the same. An outlet for the pain, the ongoing healing — a way for me to purge myself of the demons inside of me that keep hammering me.
So, thank you for going on this journey with me.
