Hi Janet, thank you so much for sharing your story and making it available on a website for others to read and take inspiration from. I love your analogy of the jigsaw and finding that you are the picture on it that you have been searching to find.

This site is  a fantastic resource for survivors of abuse and those who work with them.  There does not seem to be many voices of survivors heard and the inspiring content will be of enormous help to those survivors struggling with their own personal journeys towards healing.

This is a wonderful website – you should be very proud. A survivor of familial abuse myself I can relate to your story. You are a Warrior! I understand what it takes to survive and then to recover – it is described as an Odyssey. I am now at the stage where I am robust enough to speak out publicly – in fact, I have done via a booklet and art exhibitions.
There are men that are decent.
For me I found God – not as it happens via a recognised religion but as a spirit that exists in life. I know that CSA does not touch the soul. Your soul remains pure.

My Safeline counsellor recommended your website to me as I still blame myself for being so weak. Thank you so much xx

this is the only actual resource i found for csa survivors by csa survivors. when you look for stuff online all that comes up is scientific papers. i hope you write more. it helped me to read your thoughts. if you ever find other good resources i wish youd post about them, theyre really hard to come by.
im glad that youve been able to heal somewhat. i hope you continue to heal.
thank you

Recovery From Childhood Sexual Abuse is a great source of inspiration and information. Janet does a great job of honestly describing what it is like to be a survivor by sharing her personal story and journey to recovery. The blog and podcast include insightful discussions with other survivors and experts, who really do make you feel less alone. I think more communities/websites/groups/stories in the media like this are essential in breaking taboos around sexual abuse and creating an environment where survivors can lean on each other for support and inspiration.
