  2. Hi Emma, and welcome to AS!!! I'm Rachael and I'm one of the Newbie Support Team here to welcome you and help you around the boards if you need any assistance. My inbox is always open so feel free to ask me or one of the other NST team anything. I'm 28 and another perpetual student - I've been studying now for 10 years pretty much solid. To be honest I have no idea how to get a 'real job' lol, but I sure know my APA referencing. I'm sorry that you lost someone. That is often something that triggers struggles with other awful life events. Please know you can reach out here and get support.

  4. Hi Phoenix and a big welcome to AS from someone over the ditch (NZ). I hope you are safe today from these horrible floods. I'm one of the Newbie Support Team and I'm here to help you get used to the forum, so if you need any help, please don't hesitate to message me. I have had to have an EKG done a few times and it is always a triggering moment when those pads get put on my breast. I'm so sorry to hear this nurse has taken it even further and put you in an unsafe place. It's totally normal to think you're 'ok' for a while then struggle again. It's part of the healing process - the good o
  5. Hi Carrie, and welcome to AS. I'm one of the Newbie Support Team and I'm here to help you get used to the board and functions of AS if you need any assistance.

  6. From my husband: "I was talking to a woman at work today and she told me some stuff about her - kind of makes your life pale in comparison." Doesn't sound like much but ouch to me.
  7. Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square hole. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

  8. Yes, totally agree. It could be called "Secondary Wounding".

  11. It got so bad today I threw a massive wobbly. And that's not me. But I have REALLY had enough. Seriously.
  12. Hi Amanda, This isn't usual, you should be able to post everywhere now. It's not you, honestly!!! It must be a glitch in the system. I will get a moderator in touch with you to fix it. Welcome to AS!!! Rachael

  20. I have just posted new memories or different assaults as different stories. I do this because I know I will not get any validation if I post under the same thread, and it is validation that I'm after. I ALWAYS use the View new posts feature, but am acutely aware that not many others do. Though I also do understand where the mods are coming from and their reasons, the status quo just isn't working very well.
  21. Welcome back, I missed you!!! :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: Rach
  22. Hi Mods, Just wondering something. When a person reports a post, a single post in a thread that is otherwise fine, is that post only edited/deleted, or does the whole thread get hidden/deleted? I have recently had an experience where I reported a post, but the whole thread disappeared. That wasn't my intention, and I felt really upset. Feel free to PM me if this question is inappropriate or best asked privately. I'm not sure on the right thing to do. I mean no offense. Thanks Rach
