    I need heip. I found this site after finding out this morning that my daughter had been sexually abused by my ex husband from the the age of seven. That’s all the info I could handle for now. I’m on this site for me and my daughter. I’m still freaking out and I can’t figure out how to make my introduction to get into a forum. Please somebody tell me what I need to do before I go crazy! Thanks in advance

    Hey just make sure you’re there for her, she needs your love and support. It won’t be easy, but you two should also get her a therapist,cognitive behavioral therapy is very helpful. It’s helped me a lot! Just give her all your love and support and she will be fine!

    I saw a very lucid dream of being molested by a woman when I was a very young boy. She made me lick her and would sit on my face. I saw this about four years ago now and I’m getting worse I feel. I’m 40 and I’m having uncontrollable anger, I yell and can’t find any happiness. I know it’s in my head, but I can’t not see the vision.
