Why not start a thread on the New to Polyamory section if you have a specific question in mind, or look around for a bit to see if there are other members' stories that resonate with your own?
Oops, sorry, I saw you did just that! Will now go and investigate.
'Whore', like any label, only holds power over you as long as you are afraid of the label and accept all the shame that goes with it. I've been called a stupid/fucked-up whore so many times in my life that I am rather immunized to the word. If a whore/slut is used by somebody to describe women who are sexual beings and take the responsibility that comes with it, then it should be embraced, and every time somebody smiles back with the 'Well yes, I think I rather am', it loses a little of it's power.
