I have linked you on both of my public blogs. The first is http://teenboyissues.blogspot.com/ which as the name suggests deals with issues including bullying, suicide, etc.

The second is http://getalife-philyabootz.blogspot.com/ which details my sexual development and four occasions in which I was abused (twice by males, twice females). One occasion was severe and impacted on me for a long time.

This is in the post http://getalife-philyabootz.blogspot.com/2009/06/agony-and-ecstacy-part-5.html I never told anybody of the incidents, nor have I ever seen a therapist.

I have found however that by going over these incidents and writing them down has in itself acted as a kind of therapy. I only wish I had done it sooner because for years I was very angry and have had a deep sense of shame, somehow blaming myself and the world at large for an event that effectively ruined my life.

Ruined in the sense I was considered a good student with a bright future but I threw it all away because of the emotional turmoil I was experiencing.

I hope your blog is successful it is difficult to get through to victims of abuse and build up their self-esteem and self-confidence after experiencing such harrowing incidents.
