  1. New Here

    Welcome to the site @aitily. You started! I hope you find it helpful to look around and read what you feel like when you feel like it. I'm sorry for what brings you here. You are not alone, and I hope you find what you need.
  2. I’m back here

    @Beachmom Welcome back! Like Cap said take your time and read at your own pace. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming, and you can always step away when you need to. I wish you the best with your healing, and I'm sorry you were hurt.
  3. New to this

    @Redstar13 Welcome! I am still surprised by how much talking can help sometimes. It definitely helps when it's with people who understand.
  4. Hi

    Welcome @QuietPainter. I look forward to getting to know you. I hope you find what you are looking for here.

    Welcome, @cunixdr. I'm sorry for your past and recent trauma, and I hope you find it helpful to be part of this community. There is a lot of support to be had by reading and listening--there are so many experiences that many share. You're not alone.
  6. Scared

    Welcome, and sorry for your history and recent history of trauma. You are not alone with having multiple events to heal from, and I am glad you reached out to find some support.
  7. 1 year anniversary

    @NotrustMoco17 Sorry you are going through this aftermath of a horrendous crime. You are so right, it's not fair. I'm glad you can still enjoy and take comfort from music, even though it's not the same as before. Please remember that anniversaries can be especially hard. I wonder if you might find any access to counseling, through an advocacy center or rape crisis organization (I understand you don't have money right now. ). Sending you support, you are not alone.
  8. Hello..

    Welcome @Looking4theSun, I'm glad you took the brave step of introducing yourself, and I think you will soon find yourself feeling less alone.
  9. New to the group-looking to talk.

    Welcome @ASnow. I'm sorry you were hurt that way and I am glad to meet you in the path of healing. My own abuses were entirely hidden from me through dissociation as well, and decades later I began to know. I think it will help you to be part of this supportive community.
  10. Hello I'm new

    Welcome, @Mirden I look forward to seeing you around.
  11. Hiya!

  13. Newly Arrived

    Yes, it is big, but I think you will find your way around soon enough. A nice general forum to start with is Gathering Place, a place for support. Best wishes.
  14. Newly Arrived

    Welcome @crybaby. I'm sorry you have suffered that trauma, and I am also glad you have come here for some support. My abuses were very many years ago too, with some very fresh realizations. I look forward to getting to know you around the boards.
  15. Just Saying Hi

    Welcome, @Hazel!
