  1. Hi

    Welcome to After Silence. I'm sorry for what happened to you and how it has affected you all these years. I think we start different steps of healing when we are ready. This is a caring place, and I'm glad you are already feeling that. You're not alone in having the effects seep in to your life, I think that is the nature of these traumas, and that is not your fault. I wish you the best as you step further into your healing.

    Hi Mimity, I want to welcome you to AS. I'm sorry you are plagued by images and pain. I think you will find people here who understand what you are going through and hopefully ease the way. I think your wish to smile and mean it is a beautiful one, and I think you will get there.

    Welcome @Sunshinecomfort to a place of new friends who do understand and know what you are talking about, and who will not expect you to just be over it or stop mentioning it. I look forward to seeing you around the boards whenever you are ready.
  5. Here for myself and my daughter

    Welcome, Two of Us. I'm sorry that both of you suffered trauma. I'm glad you found this forum and I think you will find it to be warm, supportive and helpful. I believe any healing work a mother does will help her children, so I think you will be helping your daughter just by being here opening things up for yourself. My best wishes to you both.

    @VLX600 Welcome to After Silence. I'm sorry you experienced trauma, but I am glad you're seeking support. I also find it makes a huge difference to be in contact with others who have experienced similar things. And along the healing path there have been numerous times I am glad to find others who understand the particulars. I hope your therapist keeps being a help as well.

  12. Hello, new here

    @Here2Heal Welcome to AS! I'm sorry you are in a difficult phase with your healing and a resurgence of PTSD. Having a primary relationship in distress is challenging even without PTSD, and I can understand why your emergency responses are back in full force. I'm glad you have a friend to stay with, and you are right that this is a caring a supportive community, so I hope it can help provide you with some more support right now to help you through.
