Hello from newbie Tamsin

Post by Tamsin » Fri Jun 15, 2018 11:41 am

Hello everyone, I am a 60 yr old woman who was severely emotionally abused and neglected in childhood. I also suffered a serious sexual assault by a stranger when I was 8, but told no-one until I was 20, thinking that it was my own fault!
My parents have both been dead for a number of years, but would I imagine be horrified to know that I now consider they were abusive.

I have never thought of myself as a victim of abuse until recent years - but I think I do need to acknowledge it and explore how it has contributed to making my life quite challenging over the years.

Welcome. It's good that you are confronting your issues. Now, in hindsight, you will be able to use your adult wisdom when you try to understand what happened to you as a child.
