My name is Bridget, and I am here to help all of you if I can. My good friend Jackie started this group to help support other woman who have been through similar experiences. Here is my personal story.

I started getting molested as early as the age of 3. My 1st stepfather used to "punish" me for being bad, by sodomizing me. That went on until the age of 8 or so. Then my mother met her next husband. He was only 8 years older than me. As you can guess, he was more interested in me than he was her. His sexual, physical and emotional abuse started at the age of 11. He used to climb in bed with me in the middle of the night, butt naked, to "keep me warm". He would touch me, and try and kiss me. He used to force me to watch porno with him and my mother. Just to teach me the birds and the bees.

His 1st time physically raping me was the day that my mother was in the hospital having my little sister, who is now 18. Thank god that he cheated on my mother and left.

Now comes my relationship with my sons father. I was 16 when we 1st got together, and the physical abuse started 3 weeks into dating. He would hit me on a daily basis. He caused me to lose 2 babies, and he got me pregnant with my second son on purpose, to try and keep me. Lets just say when I finally did get the courage to leave him, I let him in a pool of blood. I tried to kill him. It took over 400 stiches and staples to close him up.

I am a survivor. I decided to take back control of my life. I had the worst panic and anxity attacks, and I had the worst self esteem in the world. Until one day I decided to change things. I took my life back. I am now mds free, living my life, with my family and I am glad that I am a survivor. I can help you too, to learn how to overcome the things that you may have been through. Just send me a message, and I promise not to judge.

Hey Bridge,   I appreciate your inspirational story.  And thank you for the "good friend Jackie" statement.  You are a good friend also.  We have a lot in common and I appreciate you agreeing to be group admin for me.  It takes some of the pressure off, but I really am enjoying this.   Lots o Love, Jackie
