  1. Joining again

    Hello everyone, I originally joined After Silence in 2008, and I realized that I need support in my life. Badly. I left my ex-boyfriend last year, entered a domestic violence shelter, and currently dealing with an ongoing criminal case for rape and domestic violence. Last year in August, I completed a rape exam. I don't know if this will help, but I am supposed to have another police interview coming up end of this month. Sometimes it helps being around people who understand what it feels like.
  2. Hello

    Hello, Not hundred percent positive where to put this, but I was just hoping to talk to someone? Anything really. I don't know, need an outlet. Thanks, appreciate it. I.
  3. Good Day, Folks.

    Hello, I'm sorry to hear that. I know the feeling, and perhaps I need to take a little bit of the medicine, but not everyone is bad. It's a big world out there, sometimes we see the rough parts of it but there is good there too. I.
  4. I'm New Here

    Hello, Well, first thing I will say is congratulations. You took gigantic step, and you should be proud of yourself. I don't know how it feels for men, but I'm sure with societies pressure upon them that its harder for a man when he was abused. Men are supposed to be the strong ones, the ones who are the protectors and so forth, its weak if a man cries.. personally I think its a load of horse manure. Can't say the other word We all feel embarrassed and we all feel small at times but you arent weak. You shouldnt feel ashamed, you have nothing to be ashamed of. For some they freeze up or theyll look at something else in a room and mainly remember that. Similar to the gun scenario, someone points a gun at you, people usually know how to describe the gun more than anything else. They blocked everything else out, so what I'm trying to say is, your not any less of a man. You are much stronger than you think. If you need anyone to talk to, know that I'm there. Talk to about whichever, doesn't have to be related to the abuse. I.
  5. Good Day, Folks.

    Hello, My heart goes out to both of you. I'm sorry to hear that, and yes I did Lonely. Sorry about that! Vanish, don't you have anyone in your family who you can trust?? Or a person to talk to, if you are at all close to me, I'm more than willing to be there to help you. I.
  6. Good Day, Folks.

    Hello, I thought of something, and was hoping if someone could answer it. This is pretty much to all, not just survivors but also to those who are in the family of survivors. My first question was more directed to the survivors, unless family knows how to answer it, the gender that abused (everything - rape, sexual assault, sexual abuse) you.. are you still able to be near people of that gender? Are you able to hug them, stand near them, without the fear of being revolted? For females who were abused by women, how are you in regards to being able to be a female? Females who were abused by men, are you afraid of all men?? For males who were abused by women or men, are you afraid at all?? To the family of the survivors, did you have a "abuser" in your family and how have you or your whole family reacted to them? How did you treat your friend, or your family member? Thank you, appreciate it. I'm asking to understand, ha, aren't we all though?? I.

    hey, Well, I am sorry to hear that, don't be afraid so much. Life is so short and even when we deal with certain things, sometimes we have reason to be afraid, but dont let it take you down. I.
  10. Two Questions

    Hello, I'm glad to hear that, and I hope it happens for you. It isn't your fault, and i hope that you will realize that. I wish you the best of luck. I.
  11. Two Questions

    Thank you, I appreciate it, and thank you especially to the mother who replied but part of me has already accepted that I am at fault. I just want people to not feel what I felt whenever I told, I'd rather give a hand. There's nothing one can change, you have to accept certain things and thats all you can do.
  12. Hi Everyone!

    Hello, Good to hear and hope all is well. I.
  13. Here Goes Nothin!

    Hey, Well, would you like to talk about it? Sometimes it helps when you just have a person listen rather than say they are listening but aren't really or could give a sh*t. Anyway, if you need an ear, i would kindly give it. I.
