      I too was abused from a young age, (detail removed by moderator). I moved on pretty quickly, which was ok at first but I didn’t deal with the past, and it’s catching up with me now. Small steps are all big achievments. You’ve started on that road, so even with the inevitable set backs, you’re moving in the right direction. one day at a time, you will get there x*x Hugs x*x

      Hi Primbo, welcome to this forum.
      Do you live in a safe place now?
      Do you have counseling?
      I am glad WA helps you.
      It is great that you made a list of everything. You need to deal with all of this over time. Do it slowly but steadily.
      Remember that you are a very precious person. You have done so well realising what happened to you and looking for help.
      The tiredness is normal. Abuse victims frequently suffer from fatigue.
      You were drained all your life, you had to be strong all the time and tried to survive. That is exhausting.
      Keep posting here. We are all here for you! x*x

      Hi Primbo, I’m sorry to hear you’ve experienced so much abuse from so many. It is so hard to come to terms with so much loss and hurt. I’m a couple of years into dealing with all the abuse I have suffered all my life. I’ve been lucky to get counselling and am making good progress. It’s incredibly hard and exhausting but much better this than the exhaustion of being abused. Slowly the realisations come and the fear and shame lessen. You have survived so much already that you know you’re strong enough to heal. I’m glad you are safe now. Try to be as kind, patient and compassionate to yourself as you can x*x
