  1. I think Kelly's post has pretty much covered everything but I just wanted to add my own points to this thread. Firstly, I am saddened to read that members feel they cannot come to us with issues My pm box is always open if anyone has any concerns or issues. Whenever anyone has come to me with a problem, I have always tried my very best to resolve it as best as I can. I'm not saying we always get it right, because we don't. But that's why there are a number of moderators. We always consult with each other on matters, because sometimes it takes another persons opinion, to see things in a diffe
  2. Thank you all for the suggestions and comments. I will take it to the other mods and we will come back to you all. Keep them coming

  4. Hi amandainnswooo, Welcome to After Silence. I'm so sorry things are difficult for you right now and I am sorry for what you have been through. I hope AS helps you reach out and get the support you so truly deserve. Take care
  5. Hi Liberrygrrl, Welcome to After Silence. I hope AS helps you find the support you deserve. Everybody has different triggers, and each person has no way of knowing what would trigger someone else. Please don’t worry too much about triggering others. If you feel a post may do so, just put a trigger warning on top and members can decide themselves in they are in a strong enough place to read it. This is about your healing, so feel free to share your feelings. Take care

  10. Welcome to After Silence Starfish. It’s okay to feel nervous when you first start to post, I’m sure everyone here can relate to feeling that way, when they first joined. I’m sorry for what brings you here, Facing up to what happened isn’t easy, and I think you are really brave for doing so. I hope AS helps you on your journey.

    Hi Ave, Welcome to After Silence. I’m so sorry to hear what happened to you. I think rape does change your outlook on life, I know it definitely changed mine. I’m glad to hear you are doing things to help yourself, and I think it’s really brave of you to come here and open up to us. Welcome, Feeling Alone There is no pressure to tell your story, Take as much time as you wish to look around and get comfortable on the boards. Take care
  12. Hi brokensoul, Welcome to After Silence. As others have said, it was NOT your fault and I’m sorry you had to hear that from a so called friend. I know how painful and frightening flashbacks are, but it actually could be sign that you are ready to process the memories you have buried, Although, I know that doesn’t help when you are dealing with them. I have found with time, the frequency and intensity of my flashbacks have reduced and I hope it will be the same for you. For me personally, I try to ground myself as best as I can, and afterwards I find it helps if I write about what I exper

    Welcome to AS Tale. The first posts are always nerve wracking but I’m sure you will feel right at home in no time at all. I’m really sorry for what you have been through. I’m glad you were able to reach out to your friend though, and am so happy to hear she was supportive and understanding. When I first joined AS, I like you, had vowed never to tell anyone about my assault. But I think sharing online has made it so much easier for me to open up to people in my everyday life. I hope it will be the same for you.
  14. Hi Dolphin. Welcome to After Silence. I’m glad you found us. The first time I posted on AS, I was shaking so much I could hardly type. Now, it feels like my second home. I know the first post is scary, but I promise you, that feeling will soon pass. I'm sorry your anniversary is approaching. I think anniversaries are one of the most difficult times of the year for survivors. I understand how hard it hits and how fragile it leaves you feeling. I hope you can continue to reach out get the support you deserve.

  19. Hi Fall, In response to your question, the women's only forum is a sub forum off the share your story forum, that allows female members share their stories and share questions you may have regarding intimacy etc that you would feel more comfortable sharing with female members. If you would like the password, just pm me or any of the other mods and we'll be happy to send it to you.
