In this anonymous program, we use only first names (and occasionally last initials). It’s your choice how you introduce yourself. Most people will begin speaking by saying “I’m (first name) and I’m an incest survivor.” This lets others know your name helps you to break the silence you’ve kept for so long. If you would like to use a pseudonym, do so. Trust will develop as you recover further and get to know us. Some will add “I was sexually abused by my father, mother, uncle, baby sitter, etc., and neglected by (whomever).”
