Hello!

I was born and raised in a multi-generational Utah Mormon family. I followed in my cousin's footsteps and just sent off my resignation letter. I was the victim of a family member involved sex crime as a young girl and was shamed for being "unclean" by the church leaders. I've battled severe depression since then and was recently diagnosed with PTSD because of it.

I've honestly never felt better than I did sealing that envelope.

Hi Nessanism,

Welcome! Congrats on breaking free. Strange how much of the early LDS history is about sex ... seems like a common theme for cults.

Peace

Yes, congratulations, nessanism. A Utah Mormon with a Mormon background. That's the toughest to break out of!

Hello.

I'm glad you've sealed that envelope and I hope you're on your way towards nicer, kinder, better things. I hope you're being supported and that you're getting some help for your depression and PTSD.

I am not in any position to offer you advice; I can only wish you well.

I sincerely hope that you find health and happiness. It's amazing that sites like this exist, isn't it? It's a wonderful place to find comfort.
