I have been to many websites dealing with abuse and I have found this one to be the most encouraging. The advice is very well presented and even with a bit of humor now and then. Laughter is the best medicine, and even on the worst day if something can make you laugh a little, it helps. Keep up the good work. I am an adult survivor of long term child abuse. I think it's wonderful you have a safe place where others can share their experiences, fears, hopes and dreams without recrimination. Having discovered your site today, I have read it from page to page, and have been given hope at last, that at the age of almost 44, all these terrible feelings, self-loathing, shame etc etc are not my fault, but the fault of what happened to me. I have always been 'blamed' for being 'me', but 'they' made me who I am, how I am. 44 years of fear and suffering. I hope I can finally get some help. new 2 pc and just read books by David Pelzer and I am in process of reading HELP YOURSELF at the moment. Excellent website long long overdue I believe my husband is a survivor of childhood child abuse. He has never told me, but the symptoms, etc. are textbook case. I would like to confront him, so hopefully someday he can find a path to healing, but am unsure if that's the right thing to do or how to go about it. I feel it's really starting to take a physical toll on his health. Headaches, stomach problems, sleep problems, he can't relax, etc. Yours is the best website and source of information I have found by far. I would like to seek more advice in the future. Thank you, it feels like I finally found someone who understands! Thank you so much for this site. This is just what I needed. I am extremely impressed with your on-line survey. Looking at the breakdown of responses helped me to put my issues into context, something which had never been done before by any professional. It clearly illustrated why I am having such difficulties finding assistance in dealing with my type specific type of abuse. Brilliant idea. Great work.
