      well I am happy to sit with you in your safe fortress, why did they snap at you if you want to talk about it?

      I suggested that they might have to go back to step 1&2 in the 12 steps. She got madder.

      I think AS is a wonderful place. I noticed at times I ebb and go with the flow of it all. I have found great support here. I hope you stay.

      I see , safe hugs :hug: 

      sorry they snapped at you.

      it is a wonderful place... I mean with my problems I wonder if I fit in or if it's acceptable for me to be here cause of some of the issues I have ... there not really survivor type things...

      i do intend to stay I just fade out from it and I want to be supportive but I always find my problems get me in trouble honestly.


      still sitting with you. :hug:

I wish you the best on your healing journey. Mary
  5. Not even five minutes into being here and my father is already picking a fight over a simple "Hello, how are you". This is going to be one long weekend :duh:

      Oh no! Ugh!!! Don't give in, try to stay calm and if he's picking a fight just try to avoid going any further with it, it's not worth your energy...good luck!!!!

      @Ayla3 I'm not going to :) I think my calmness was making him more annoyed, to be honest. I have guests staying over for the weekend so I'm sure they'll do the heavy work for me and distract him. Thanks for the luck!

      Good for you! Stay calm, even if it bugs him, just do you and let the others just keep him busy, that sounds like a very good plan! :) 

  6. Welcome Charlie. Sorry you had to find this place. Take your time, here to listen and support you.
  7. Hi @charlie87 and welcome to AS I'm sorry for what you've been through, no one should have to need a site like this. You are right, having support from a community like this will be helpful, it has been for me. There's lots of support here and many many kind and caring members. Take the time you need to look around here and post when you are ready. I wish you all the best as you begin to heal from your trauma.
  8. Hello, This is my first post to any sort of support group. I'm not sure what I looking for but I know something has to change and I think support from others who have been there may help.

  13. Hi LeChuck, Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma you have experienced and the memories that are come back to you and the struggles you face. The mind can be very tricky, and it is not uncommon for there to be memory issues, especially at the age you were dealing with it. You have reached out, which is a big step. I'm sorry that some in real life have taken advantage, but you will find safety and support here. We understand and support you. I wish you well on this journey of healing. Mary

  16. Hi Karen, welcome to AS.
  17. Hello, welcome to AS. Sorry about what brought you here. Its a huge first step towards healing to start talking about it.
  18. Welcome @Miny, I'm saddened to hear how you've been treated by others. You won't find that here, as others here have said. You're among fellow survivors and friends.
  19. Welcome @LeChuck. Your English is fine, you made no mistakes I'm sorry you experienced childhood sexual abuse. I also did and also recently began to remember it. You are not alone. Many people here can relate to this and many here deal with anxiety and depression as well. You're in the right place for healing and support.
  20. Welcome @purples! Glad to have you with us though I'm sorry you need to be here. We welcome all gender identities here, we have a section for Transgender survivors under the Survivor Connections if you are interested, and of course the rest of the forum.
  21. HI Let Chuck welcome to AS. I am sorry for what happened to you as a child. It is normal to block out abuse from our child. I am a surviver of CSA to. You will find this a safe place, we understand what you have gone through and what you are going through. For me the biggest thing is I don't feel alone here. I am heard and believed. You did everything fine. Patricia
  22. New, and with good taste in video games, I assume You're in a decent place. I'm sorry you were hurt so young, but if you've found your way here you'er reaching out, and that means getting back on your feet, you're on the right path. Namaste
  23. Hi all, I'm 24 and Italian, I've been having anxiety and depression issues since I was about 5 and an extremely weak memory of my childhood in general. A couple of years ago I started recollecting memories of early sexual abuses. I'm trying my best to understand myself and heal, although sadly very few people decided to help me rather than take advantage of my current weakness. I hope I am on the right path. Thanks a lot to you for taking the time to read my message, and I hope I didn't make any mistakes!
