Im Kay, Im a 23 yr old mother of one and an abuse survivor. I need a place to share what happened. To know what it wasnt my fault. To hear someone say "its okay". My husband is extremely supportive but he doesnt 100% understand what I am going through. He's also dealing with PTSD and its really hard for him. Here's my story

Don't worry about taking time to reply we all have busy lives.

Im sorry it took me so long to get back to you. Things have been a little crazy around my house.


I have been seeing my therapist for almost 6 months now, I was sent to her by my primary care manager (PCM) who is one of the best ladies I know. I started going to therapy for depression and extreme anxiety but after a few weeks she knew there was an underlying problem. I finally got up the courage to tell her, I trust her more than I have ever trusted any other therapist or counsler. I feel safe with her.


My Aunt didnt know what was going on, it wasnt until about five years later that she finally told me she knew what he had done and she believe me. She said she knew something was wrong with her own son but she didnt want to believe it was as bad as rape. I only told my cousin Brit. I havent told anyone else aside from my husband and my therapist.


Thank you for being so welcoming. It helps to have another place to share, to feel that people have endured similar experiences. To know I am not alone. Thank you

Thank you for responding. I do not have anyone I can talk to. My cousins and I no longer talk. My husband is dealing with his own problems. I am in therapy but its not helping as much as I would like

It is not your fault.
