Is there Hope?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Domestic Violence Accounts : One Thread
I was sexually abuse as a child. Been in theraphy for 15 years and doing real good, except for one thing. I want to be in a relationship. To have a soul mate. To be love even with all my hang up. I meat people but my past all ways seems to put a damper on the relationship. I guess what I would like to know, is there a place any one knows about where you can meet people of both sex that been sexually abuse? Some place where people can really relate to my feeling, as well as having some one relate to their?

You need to check with the domestic abuse shelters in your area and also possibly the child abuse centers. This will help you find out if there are any support groups in your area. You can call the National Domestic Abuse Hotline and they can tell you any shelter services available. Most of the shelters operate support groups for victims of abuse. You might also try sexual assault centers they should keep a list also. Good luck. Robyn
