  2. I understand your emotions so well that I myself became angry when reading this post. God, I know that, man. I would really like to suggest that you calm down and try to take control of the situation, but if you can't do it on your own, then I advise you to try red vein kratom, as it is very effective. I would also like to tell you that everything in life is as it should be and we can't change anything, but only correct it. Just be stronger than all of this and start helping yourself if possible

    Hi

    Hi simply, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what happened to you and it is a big deal. Whoever told you it is not either does not understand or they rather not think about there being people like this out there, so denial kicks in. Being hurt is not something anyone should go thru. It's not deserved and it's not right. How you are questioning yourself sadly is common among survivors. We second guess our own actions...but should be questioning their actions. There is never an excuse or reason anyone should hurt you. Never. I am glad you have found our community. Do know th

    Hi

    Hello simply, I am Wanna What happened to you is not your fault. I can say that right away without details. It is never your fault. If you are unsure about whether you gave consent or not, that is not right. You should always be sure you was safe and respected. If somebody has done something to you, resulting to the point of you considering it as SA/R/harassment, that is a big deal. Nobody should have to go through with this. It doesn't matter how "normal" this would be, that doesn't make it any less serious. I am sincerely sorry for your reasons to be here, but hopefully Aft

    Hi

    I've spent a short while trying to decide whether to type anything on here. Because honestly I spoke to one person about what happened to me and I'll just say they were a responsible adult and they told me 'it happens to everyone at your age, it's no big deal' but maybe it's my fault they said that. I mean I didn't tell the whole story, I didn't want my parents to find out. Is it my fault? What should I have done? ANyway Hi! Nice to meet you all

    Hey

    Thank You everyone
  15. I am truly thankful for this community and for all of those wonderful connections I have made here.  Though this year has been nothing short of chaotic, I am truly glad that AS has remained a safe place. I know that this year’s holiday season is going to be a bit bittersweet with the looming pandemic but my wish for all of you is that you will remember to take good care of yourselves amid the craziness.  You are worth it!!

    Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate.  If not, have a hug anyway, for I’m grateful for all of you.  🦃🤗

    Normal

    Via. not even sure what normal is. But, I do know in general maybe what you mean. I have had to take a hard look lately at what has gotten my life to this point. And, I have no doubt my life could have had extraordinary in it. Even in the aftermath of debilitating pain. Personally, I just have never been in a place to accept anything within my mind other than negative. The doubt is never too far away. I just am trying to be a little better at controlling it. While not letting it control me. I do not mean to minimize any of this. But maybe someone out there still thinks we should have just a l

    Normal

    You know when you just want so badly to be a normal person, but no matter how hard you fucking try, you can't? I don't think I'll ever be normal. My relationships will never be normal. My sex life will never be normal. I don't want extraordinary. I just want fucking normal.
  18. Hi there! welcome! your post sounds an awful lot like my first post. I was also diagnosed with PTSD too and struggle with surviving CSA and SA. I'm happy you're here and proud of you for reaching out to this place! this has been so helpful for me on my journey of finding peace/healing. I hope it helps you too. If you ever need to talk to someone feel free to reach out. I'm happy to talk.
  19. There is still time to join our 2020 Holiday Buddies program!

    Hey, there everyone...we all know that for many of us, the holidays are very stressful. It can be anything from being mildly blue to having extreme difficulty of getting thru these next few weeks. Sometimes we need a little extra understanding and support.  :hug: 

    This is our third year with our Holiday Buddies program. If you haven't read about it, please take a look at our post describing it in the link below. It's main idea is that we can match two members together to help each other thru the stresses this holiday season brings. :unsure:

    The Holiday Buddies process will try to best match your needs with another member or even a staff member like me. :blink:  We will not turn anyone away, so if you would like a little extra support this holiday season, your Holiday Buddy is a few short screening questions away.

    Thank you for reading. :thanks:

  24. I was scrolling through Reddit. "What's one thing you wish you'd never gone through?" Ahh, AskReddit, the deeply philosophical subreddit. One of my favorites. I paused before I wrote. "I was a victim of domestic violence from sixteen to eighteen," I began. "It's made me a better therapy student," I admitted, "but I could do without the lingering anxiety and PTSD." For the first time in therapy a few weeks ago, I had acknowledged that I wasn't sorry the abuse had happened. I wouldn't wish it on anyone - ever - but for myself, I have learned things about myself and my world a
  25. Hello kemosabe, I am Wanna Welcome to After Silence! It can take a while before one feels ready to share. Retelling traumatic experiences and being vulnerable does not come easy to most survivors, but every survivor deserves a safe place to do so. I am happy to hear that you acknowledge our members to be kind, and that you feel less alone. This platform is a place to share, vent, exchange experiences and support. All within what you feel comfortable with. You might have noticed that we also discuss mental health among other things, like PTSD. You can talk about that as well if you'
  26. Hello BBAnn, I am Wanna Welcome to After Silence! First off, I am sincerely sorry for your trauma and all that comes with it. I am so happy you found us, that you've gotten professional help and that your partner is understanding. Having a community sort of completes the system, I believe. I recommend every survivor to find one. With this platform, you can find other survivors to exchange experiences, support and advice. You choose what to share and how much. You can talk about anything here actually. Being nervous in the beginning is totally fine, this is after all a crucial step.
  27. Hi, welcome to AS. You're not alone. This is a very supportive and friendly community.
  28. Hi and welcome. Dont be nervous everyone here is friendly. I'm sorry for what you went through, I hope you can find some friends here and know you're not alone.
