I'm on this forum because I've spent my whole life feeling lonely and used, and dealing with emotional, mental, and past sexual abuse, as well as all the lovely things that go along with that. I'm hoping that maybe, someday, I won't feel ashamed, worthless, or alone anymore.

I cannot imagine what you have gone through. My ex fiance was raped at one point and it was very traumatic for her. I tried to be understanding, but I fear anyone who has not gone through that probably cannot understand the trauma it causes.

As far as for being alone I relate. When I had my first bout with mental illness my friends not understanding my eratic behaior all cut me off because of it. I spent years alone and friendless.

Eventually however I made new friends who are quite understanding of my condition, and incredibly supportive and understanding. It took a lot longer than I would have liked, but it still happened.

I can also relate to mental and emotional pain. I'm fairly ruined inside myself. I can say that since i joined a few days ago these fine folks have kept me from being lonely.
