Dealing with the past is hard

Anything that spells out v.i.o.l.a.t.i.o.n is bound to leave a lot of scars behind. Being "hurt" does not always have to mean cuts and bruises. Some hurt transcends beyond physical pain and settles itself in the mind like a slow poison that silently kills feelings of positivity till there is literally no hope left. We are then, apparently, "beyond help".

Healing from an abusive experience is always possible. Maybe not 100%, but changes can be made.

You dont need to be a victim forever. Survive.You deserve both health and happiness.

Think about this -

You were NOT responsible for what happened. So why hurt/harm/drown yourself in feelings of self-blame ?

White Noise Poster

This is it ! :D
A huuge thank you to Samita (TheSam) for tolerating my pathetic time management skills. The original is sans mugshots of the other two performing artists, so this poster has been modified by moi to fit them in.

About Abuse and Us

I am the FudgeQueen. I would prefer to be known just as that for now, till we are better acquainted. This blog will focus on providing consistent updates and informative essays on Child Sexual Abuse.

My group is called Elaan. We have been around since July 2004. We will be a registered NGO by January 2006. Till then the movement to spread awareness on Child Sexual Abuse is being spearheaded by me. Its tough but relevant.

What IS Child Sexual Abuse and why bother crying yourself hoarse over it when it's about something that happened in the past ?

That's a question that i have been asked by all and sundry. After tiring myself out with diplomatic responses, i feel that this, i.e. today, is the right time to set the record straight.

I have had personal experiences with facing abuse, and have been through hell with dealing with the aftermath of it. I see myself as a living example of a survivor who, after (finally) receiving support and love, is still not completely over it.

The aftermath is what is even more dangerous than the abuse itself.

As for the "what is", you're not stupid. You have the internet. Read This, and This too.

And if you havent had enough, there's 1 , 2 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 8 , 9 , 10 .
