  1. Hello!

    I can't wait to get to know you! Hopefully you find that AS is as amazing as I find it.
  2. Hi : )

    Hey Berni, I'm glad you joined AS! You should find a great support system here.
  3. Hey!

    I'm glad to hear you're in counseling and your husband is helping you. It's always nice to have a group of people helping you heal! It sounds like we're in almost exactly the same situation - I'm almost at 4 years since, but I've only been healing for the last 8 months or so.
  4. Wanting To Say Hello

    Hi Erin! I'm glad you joined AS. I agree with you - it is a truly amazing support system. I hope you find your way to healing.

  6. The Healing Quotes Thread!

    "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain." -Maya Angelou "You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it. -Maya Angelou "It's about realizing, painfully, you've kept that voice inside yourself, locked away from even yourself. And you step back and see that your jailer has changed faces. You realize you've become your own jailer." -Unknown "Remember that people are the least lovable when they are most in need of love." -Unknown "You decide whether you look at your reality or live pretending these feelings don't exist." -Unknown "Some people are afraid of what they might find if they try to analyze themselves too much, but you have to crawl into your wounds to discover where your fears are. Once the bleeding starts, the cleansing can begin." -Tori Amos “Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.” -Unknown "The pain of the truth is not nearly as bad as pretending the truth does not exist" -Unknown
  7. Invalidation. Words Can Hurt!

    Not specifically to me, but a friend said "if she had never drunken that night, she wouldn't have been raped." Yes, because we really know what's going to happen when you go to a party. What a shame that she didn't bring her anti-rape condom, right? All her fault, isn't it.
  8. What Did You Do For You Today?

    Today, I took a nice long nap, took my vitamins, drank a lot of water, and didn't stress out about finals. I was completely relaxed, and it was really nice
