Hello, I'm new here, wanted to introduce myself. I am a survivor or incest by my grandfather and sexual abuse by eight other men, physical and emotional abuse by my mother. I am using writing to heal. I've been working on a book based on my childhood and how I am reconditioning (reprogramming) my mind and body after years of abuse. I hope to be finished soon. I'm also working on a second project which is an anthology of letters by survivors to their abusers. The goal is to publish them. If you think you may be interested, visit www.letterstomyabusers.com for details. The deadline is October 30th. I hope to heal together. I also created a live journal community called reconditioning, where I hope survivors can share how they are healing and changing the patterns and beliefs formed in their abusive childhoods. http://community.livejournal.com/reconditioning/ Take care. Keep healing and growing.
