  1. Hello there

    Welcome to AS @Rhiannon-rhi I'm sorry you're dealing with so much stress, anxiety and depression. This is a great place to share with others who understand and support each other.
  2. New member here

    Hi @Krista21 welcome to AS. I'm sorry for what happened to bring you here. This is a great place to find people who get it. You are not alone. Sending you lots of support!

    Hi Suzanne and welcome to AS. I'm very sorry about what happened to you. I'm glad you found After Silence. It's a nice community here. There are many caring and supportive people here. Take your time to look around the site and post when you feel ready and comfortable
  4. Hoping to start healing

    Welcome to AS @ItsMeV, I'm sorry to hear you've needed to suppress for so long, it is very difficult. I am glad you have 3 people who know, but it's completely understandable you want to reach out more to people who do know what it's like. When you reach 10 posts, you will have access to the Share Your Story forum. I wish you peace and healing and plenty of support!
  5. New to the group-looking to talk.

    Hi @ASnow welcome. I'm so sorry about what your grandfather did to you. Dissociation has helped me, too. Can also relate to not remembering for many years things that happened and wanting to remember. Some things have come back but not all. I'm glad you found this site because you'll find that you're not alone, and there is so much support and kindness here. Best wishes to you!
  6. Hiya!

    Hi @ShawnaB welcome! I hope you will find the support you need here. It can be scary to face trauma; it is easier when you know you're not alone. Take your time to look around the forums and post when you're ready
  7. Hey, I’m a newbie

    Welcome @PTSD_RyujiSakamoto I'm glad you found AS on recommendation. I'm sorry for what happened to you as a child. It is very confusing especially when another child is involved. I'm not sure if you happened to see, but there is a topic for this under Sexual Assault: Different Types forum. I have also gone through it, the other was also a female. Don't have full memories yet, have lots of dissociative amnesia for childhood, but like you, I didn't know it was abuse for most of my life. Wishing you healing and plenty of support through this.
  8. Hello im new!

    Hi and welcome @Hushbunny I hear the struggles you have and wanted to let you know you're not alone. I'm glad you found AS, it's a place where you can just be and there's no expectations or pressure. There aren't any judgements or blame toward you either. You can share as little or as much as you're comfortable with. Sleep is something many of us have issue with, we even have a pinned thread all about that! I hope you find ways to cope that are right for you.

    Hi and welcome @Autumngrace. I think it's great that your therapist knows about AS and they are hoping it will be helpful to you. I'm sorry to hear you are feeling alone. I do hope that you will find being here a contribution to your healing. It's a good community here of folks who support each other through good and bad moments. I wish you the best
  10. Do not call me a survivor

    I get it. I have been struggling with being called a survivor, too. Here's hoping all the best for all of us to survive PTSD and all lingering issues that stem from the abuse.
  11. I'm new

    Hi and welcome, Jessica! Hope you feel comfortable here. By the way, I have the same career goal. One day we will be great counselors
  12. Hola, new to the forum support stuff

    Hi Fearless and welcome to AS! That's amazing what you're doing. I look forward to seeing you around the board. I am happy to hear that you have healed. It can't have been an easy road and you made it through. You sound like you're in a good place to help others. Thank you for being an advocate!
  13. Not new but been away for quite some time

    Hi @katina and welcome back. I hear you, sometimes we need to stay away from focusing on trauma to keep going in our everyday lives. And sometimes we need to come back. It happens with many people here, and is always alright to do that. Glad you are doing what is best for you.
  14. Hello

    Hi and welcome at AS Michelle! I'm sorry for what you went through. It's nice to hear you have a good family with your husband and your animals. That's really awesome to hear about Eric! Glad to know you have worked out a plan to keep your diabetes in check. Hope you find what you're looking for here at this forum.
  15. Nervous but Ready to Heal

    Welcome @jessibear There are many topics here that are helpful in coping in healthy ways and healing. Hope you will find something that will resonate with you. I wish you the best.
