    I thought I was crazy!!! I feel so stupid for feeling relief in finding this place...

    I just want to not be alone anymore...

    I have fought so hard...for so long...I have been through every form of abuse and domestic violence there is...since I was 4...I am now 33...

    I finally got away from my X, who almost killed me...yet still harasses me...and my "family" still exists, but...

    I've fought so hard to figure out who I am and what I want...but I always seem to wind up back in this dark place...

    I thought I was crazy. I wanted so much to talk about it, but there was no one...the fear of that look when the subject was approached...even with counselors...the questions...

    In the last year, I have lost everyone who I could ever go to safely, for a hug, or just to talk...I want a hug so badly, but it's been almost a year since I had someone to give me one...

    I haven't felt this alone for a long time, if ever...I didn't think it was possible to hurt this much so silently...

    But now...I found this place...is it true there are others out there? Could I really...maybe...just a little bit...belong somewhere?

    Yes... there are others out here... that's the beauty of the darkness... we can always see just enough to know that we are not alone... and hear just enough to know that the silence is not always so quiet...

    The question that begs to be answered is... is that enough? Is it enough to know there are others... some worse... some not as bad... everyone struggling with their own pain... who's to say how bad your pain is to you? Certainly not I...

    Almost a year since someone gave you a hug... I can't imagine that...

    For me it's been over 10...

    I think it's really sad that it's a year since you've had a hug, so I hope you don't mind if I give you a virtual one! :hug:

    I can say that things get a little better when you talk to someone. even from afar...
    maybe I am lonely, but im not alone. it still hurts but... you know... at least people would hug if they could, and this can be a beginning.
    I hope this goes for you too. welcome to the forums

    Welcome to the forum Icarus. I too felt all alone when I came here but now I have many international friends and a safe place to go when there's nowhere else to go. I wish you all the best.:smile:
