How are we doing?
thanks so much I really needed this no nonsense approach today
I am so happy to have found your site. I left my abuser and am trying to live a "normal" life. It's been two years since I left and I'm still having trouble adjusting.
this infomation helps me to understand to ask for help when i need it

I found some really interesting information.
there are many times where the support here helped me when no other place was able to. having people that truly understand, from the inside, my struggles, helps me to know i'm not alone. that is invaluable.
It is a place where every voice matters and is heard… A place where I can share and discuss issues with other survivors. A place with excellent resources. Most of all a place where I can come and safely say it how it is.
Fort is somewhere I can come for hours at a time or just a few minutes to pass my time in between chores. Fort is somewhere I can escape to when things are really tough and I cannot face people face to face and would never be able to talk the way I do here.
There have been times, (even tho we have not posted this) the fort has helped us NOT leave this world. There are so many good people and info and just the fact 'we' are accepted, and NOT judged has helped us!

This site helped me to understand myself better
The other day was the first in 7 years that I SI and I was feeling very ashamed about it. I posted a thread wanting to talk about how I was feeling and some of you welcomed me with no bias to I was and why I am an SI. Thank you for your support and open arms.
I'm understood. I'm not a freak of nature. I'm not a lunchroom chat topic. I'm a human with feelings and the people here don't push me, they just listen. For the first time. I have friends. They may be on a computer, but they're still my friends.
