I am honored to have had my story chosen to share among other survivors by this terrific organization.

And yes, those words, "I believe you" or something similar, the recognition of what happened, the acknowledgement of the hurt has helped me as well to go on, to find ways out of deep places .... still, it's an absolute shame on our society that a website like this is necessary .... my heart goes out to all of us having had to experience abuse in any form ....
