  4. Hello Rt71, Welcome to Aftersilence. I'm sorry for the reason you have had to make your way oover here. Memory can be very strange/ difficult. I think a lot of time when we get struck with trauma our brains try to block out information. It will take time but I think it will come to you.

    Hey

    Hello Tea, Welcome to Aftersilence! I'm from Canada too, but I now live in the States! I spent years and year in denial until I spoke out about it. I think by being here you will receive a lot of support and will help you understand what you went through. There are a lot of people here that have similar experiences. I think you took the right first step finding us Mandy

  10. Hello Amy, Welcome to Aftersilence I'm sorry for the reason you have had to come here, but I'm glad that you did find us. Have you tried reaching out to a local r*pe crisis center? I'll send you a personal message about this shortly. I know what you mean when you say it tears you up every single day of your life.. but I want you to know that things do get better.. just takes time and sometimes a lot of time. I think a step into this direction was the right one and slowly we'll move forward together. Mandy
  11. Hello Tm2566, Welcome to Aftersilence!!! My name is Mandy and I am apart of the Newbie Support Team.

Nothing is too big or too small.. it all affects us in different ways..and you know I'm glad you reached out to us for support Mandy

    Hi!

    Hello Ladybrgr, Welcome to Aftersilence! Glad you found us and I do hope you find the support you are looking for. I do find this community to be supportive and no one is here to judge. Look forward to seeing you around the boards! Mandy NST
  14. Hello Marley13, Welcome to Aftersilence. I'm sorry about the events that have lead you to here! As for reporting to the police.. I would recommend getting a support person. Even if you went to a local rape crisis center or you could call an anonymous line. If you would like I could guide you into that direction. Everyone has different experiences reporting to the police..when I did it they wanted to know every single detail...and since it happened to me when I was child I didn't remember some exact things. I'm not trying to scare you just saying you should talk to someone so you have someone to support you before, during and after the process if you choose to go ahead. Mandy NST
  15. Hello Wopwoman, Welcome to Aftersilence! I'm sorry to hear what you went through... how are you doing?

I hope you find the support you are looking for and I look forward to seeing you around the boards. Mandy
