Please take your time and look around the forums and I feel you will soon be aware that many of us also feel confused and very much not okay. here I hope that you will find what you need to help you heal from what has happened to you
  2. Hi @Zoe F. Welcome to the AS forum. I am sorry that you have been through such a difficult situation with your partner. I am also sorry that you didn't get support from your 'friends'. Shame is hard to deal with and does not belong to us, but needs to be placed firmly on the abusers. I hope that you will find the support and validation here that you need. Thank you for offering support, this will be needed and appreciated.

  6. Hello, I guess I am not really new as I used to be here some years ago. It is a great Forum and the support I had when I was posting really helped me. I used to be Andrea1501 but the new site didn't seem to recognise me, so now I am Andrea2603! I don't know if anyone can remember me but, if you do, please say hi.
