  1. @Lily227 Hello, and welcome to After Silence. I am so sorry to hear you have pain that brings you here, but we are so happy that you have found us.

  2. Oh I definitely understand you there ! I believe we can be triggered by a lot of things around us without even realizing it, especially when our memories are buried. I am still recovering memories myself because of this very thing! When we bury things so deeply, there can be small things (songs, an object, a sound, a smell, etc) that can take us back to those memories without us entirely remembering them . And that can be a very scary thing to deal with. Have you tried writing out the sensations/ memories/ thoughts that come to you in those moments? I would suggest trying to do so if you think you can handle that? I personally have and I’ve made some breakthroughs with memories I only had pieces to. take gentle care of yourself sam🖤
  3. @Samonne hello and welcome to After Silence! I am so sorry for what brings you here, but we are so glad you have found us. You are not alone sam🖤
  4. @Shefloats hello and welcome to after silence. You are NOT crazy. Our minds can be tricky. Burying things that are so traumatic that they come back in fragments at random times. Maybe something you heard, smelled, saw brought a fragment of a memory back to you in those moments that added to your “rape box”. I hope I’m making sense but this has happened to me. I am currently still adding to my own box in my mind... memories are flooding back to me. I just wanted you to know you aren’t alone. Our brains don’t just make traumatic scenarios out of nothing. Your pain is valid. You are valid. You matter. if you would like to chat or vent I am here for you sam🖤

  11. @Quirka Hello and Welcome! We are so glad you have found us I am happy to hear you have such a wonderful support system in real life. That is huge for anyone in their healing journey! "Healing" is something us survivors deal with forever. Sexual trauma is not something you can fully heal from I don't think. The wounds can become easier to tend to over time, but they will always be there. I hope this site can bring you comfort in knowing there are many here who understand your struggles with this trauma. sam 🖤
