Proud To Be Me by The Lantern Project in association with HAVOCA. Proud_to_be_meThis 36 page booklet has been written and produced with the initial healing process in mind. It was masterminded by a fellow survivor, Peter Andrews, and co-written by our Trustee, Jamie Harms. Together they have combined their own experiences and welded together a solid platform for the journey that victims of abuse find themselves embarked upon.

    How do I change? I’ve never abused.
    But my head is truly screwed up.
    I have trust issues.
    I pretty much live in my own world.

      John – I just found this website myself. I very close male friend of mine is a victim of abuse and told me the same things you said. I am looking to better understand so I can help him as a friend and someone who cares. I suggest to you as I have supposed to my friend go see a therapist if there is anyway possible. Help is out there and people care. It can get better.

    Recently I asked my parents for help to pay for therapy from my dad sexually abusing me as a child. My mom called me Monday to talk about it. I’ve been in therapy for 20 years for chronic suicidal depression, PTSD and in the past eating disorders & self-harm. My dad paid for the first couple months but I have been paying ever since. She said, “Aren’t you past that yet? Can’t you put that behind you?” I attend a weekly Women’s Trauma Group and have an one on one session with my therapist once a month. I’ve been seeing this therapist the last 5 or 6 years. Working with her has kept me out of the mental health hospital for suicidal ideation.
    Do you have suggestions for some articles to send my parents on the long lasting effects of sexual abuse?
