  1. New Here and so glad I have found you!

    Welcome to AS @KathrynMay24 I'm sorry for what brought you here and I hope you get the support you need. This is a good forum to be among people who understand.
  2. Confused

    Hi @Ghostly Lilian welcome to After Silence. I understand how all of this can be confusing, and often there are mixed feelings to go along with it all as well. It's nice to meet you! There are some members whose first language is not English here, too. I'm hoping that you find what you're looking for at this forum Best wishes for your healing!
  3. I’m a mess

    Hi @taylorml123 welcome! I'm so sorry about what you went through. You deserved better responses from your friends in high school. You were not to blame then or the last time. I understand how hard it is to talk about it. It's also incredibly difficult to keep it inside. I'm glad you did this for you: joining a support site for survivors. Like others said, you'll find no judging here.
  4. New

    Hello and welcome to AS @lostinthe I hear you; getting started on joining a forum can be daunting at times. You're in the right place for what you're seeking. I'm a big music lover, too. We've got some pretty creative folks here. I support you on your way to healing. It can be a rough road, for sure, and for many, having a good support system/network has been helpful. You're not alone
  5. Back after a long time away

    Hi @Jasmine charmed welcome back to AS I'm glad you decided to come back here; there's a lot of support to be had here.
  6. oldie but newbie!

    Hi and welcome! I'm sorry you were assaulted at 14 I understand the many years of avoidance (nice user name!). I can't speak for everyone but personally, I've found that being here at AS helped me greatly before I was able to find the right therapist. Having both together is great. I hope that your being here will help you too.
  7. Greetings & Salutations

    Welcome to AS @Schnitzel. I'm sorry to hear you've been going through this for so long. I, too, have lost loved ones because of it. I hope that you can feel that you're truly not alone.

    Hi @Indyrex welcome to After Silence! I'm sorry to hear that you are struggling a lot. PTSD can be very difficult to deal with. This forum has been my safe space to share, receive support and give support for many years. It's not judgmental and people here are kind and caring. It's a nice community where you don't have to constantly explain yourself.
  9. Hello

    Hi @DakotaSun and welcome to After Silence! I'm glad you found this forum. I hope that it will be as helpful to you as it's been to me. I'm also a single mother. It's a lot to bear when you're trying to keep everything 'normal' for the kids. I'm sorry about the responses you've received when trying to get support. Most people don't seem to understand what domestic violence is really like. I am glad to hear that you have gained freedom and that you haven't lost hope. You're doing yourself a huge favour by reaching out and this is a place where you'll find no judgement. Wishing you all the best on your path to healing.
  10. Hello~

    Hello and welcome to AS @BlackTulip. I'm sorry about what you went through. I am glad you found us! I hope you have support IRL as well. I look forward to seeing you around, and wish you all the best.
  11. Returning After Being Away

    Welcome back @flowers74 I'm sorry for what brought you back, though I'm glad you found us (again).
  12. Hello, Looking to heal....

    Welcome @LooksLikeRain I am sorry this is going on for you. Doesn't seem fair at all...60 days isn't much time. I'm sorry for the loss of your best friends and their family. I'm glad to hear that you're in therapy, just please try to be gentle with yourself as healing from this isn't linear, and the fact that you lost support may make it more difficult. Which is why I'm glad you found AS. There's lots of supportive people here who care and won't judge or blame you for what happened to you. We understand.
  13. Long time member introduce me

    Welcome back Judith! I remember you of course. I'm sorry for what brought you back. Hope your return is helpful for you.
  14. Not to sure where to start.

    Welcome @Kay123! Hope you find this site helpful to you as you embark on your journey to healing.
  15. Hello!

    Welcome to AS Jo! I'm sorry about what happened to you as a child and at 18. I can relate to that. I can also relate to using different ways to soften the blow when telling people what happened. That is awful to hear about your parents. You deserve better than that. I am glad you found this site and hope it proves to be beneficial to you
