Time For Healing

survivors of incest and child abuse

Coming to terms with incest is not easy.
Learning to be a survivor, not a victim, gives new meaning to life.
Working on these pages has been stressful, painful, rewarding,
emotional, tearful, insightful, but most of all, healing.
Sometimes my anger was all consuming. I suffered anxiety attacks.
Many deeply hidden memories have come flooding back.
The important messages here though are, HEALING and SURVIVAL.
Everyone has survived their own kind of emotional or mental trauma.
We all have our inner fears and misplaced feelings of guilt.
I want each of you to find helpful and healing words here.
Please read all 8 pages, check out the recomended links.
If you are a survivor of childhood abuse or know someone who is,
these pages and recommended sites may provide understanding and insight.
You are strong, you are capable, you are worthy, you are loved.
Healing can happen. You have Survived!
A strongly recommended site Survivors of Incest Anonymous
Survivors of Incest Anonymous defines incest very broadly as a sexual encounter by a family member, or by an extended family member that damaged the child. By "extended family" member we mean a person that you and/or your family has known over a period of time. This may be any family member, a family friend, clergy, another child, or anyone that betrayed the child's innocence and trust. We believe we were affected by the abuse whether it occurred once or many times since the damage was incurred immediately. By "abuse" we mean any sexual behavior imposed on the child. Sexual contacts may include a variety of verbal and/or physical behaviors; penetration is not necessary for the experience to count as incest.
If you know a child who is in danger or who is being abused--or if you are a child who is being abused get help. CALL 1-800-4-A-CHILD
