  1. Welcome back @Painnbroken! I hope you are doing okay.
  2. You’re welcome! I wanted to add that I hope this recent revelation leads to healing for you, not to things being destroyed.
  3. Hi @Achelois, I am sorry for what brings you to a site like this, but I am glad you found AS and have taken the step of reaching out. I don’t know what happened to you, but I know there are many reasons why we sometimes don’t know what has happened to us until much later. I hope you find the support you are looking for as you steer through the challenge of knowing. This is a friendly community.
  4. Welcome to After Silence! It’s a caring and friendly place, and I am glad you are reaching out to others who understand the kinds of struggles you face, as you reach for further healing. Your photograph is beautiful.
  5. Welcome, Matt! I'm very sorry you were hurt recently and have a reason to be here, but I'm really glad you found the site and are feeling so good about being here. It really is a kindhearted place full of friends to support you.
  6. @Sign42 Welcome to the interactive aspect of After Silence. It's nice to meet you and I hope you will find that now that you are ready the site will provide another level of support to you in your healing!

    @Diara Welcome to After Silence. I'm very sorry for what has brought you here, and I'm also glad you have found this place and reached out to find some support. It does take a while to get to know the site, so take your time and feel free to post questions about things you don't understand. There is a lot here, so don't worry about covering everything, and pace yourself so that it feels right to you. I think you will find you are not alone in the after effects of what you have gone through, and there is lots of support to be had.

    @Ro_91 Welcome to After Silence. I’m sorry you were subjected to trauma as a child and adult. I’m glad you have found this site which can be a great source of support and information and knowing we are none of us alone.

    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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Welcome back, brokenchild, I'm glad you remembered where you found warm support, and I hope you will find what you need here, and that it helps with the PTSD youa re currently suffering from. I do think support and community can make a big difference.
  14. Welcome @Violet_Jenn! I'm glad you have come here. All kinds of language styles are welcome here.
