  1. Awww thanks so much to everyone @EmptyInside @Kmkz @missfrier @BraveOne @TerraMarkov @silentg & @patriciag for such a warm welcome back!!
  2. Hi AS! After a few months break, I think I'm back. Just wanted to say hi to everyone! I've missed you!
  3. Welcome to AS @l3anne. We're here for you if you have any questions
  4. Hi @Lwaxana welcome to AS. I'm sorry for what brought you here. I wish you peace and comfort
  5. Hi @Molly125 welcome to AS! Hope you find what you're looking for here
  6. Welcome to AS @caligirl99 I'm sorry that you got such responses from disclosing what happened to you. We believe you and we support you!
  7. Welcome back @tgdouglas11 Good for you for starting law school! That is huge. I am sorry though that your PTSD is 'reactivated', I found that similar things happened when I went back to school years ago. I'm glad you reached out here. Hoping that you will feel self-empowerment by deciding to help yourself at this time. You're stronger than you think!
  8. Welcome to After Silence, @cunixdr I am sorry for what happened to you. Please know that you don't have to disclose if/when you are not ready to. Sometimes just sitting amongst other people who 'get it' is enough for a while. You are welcome to do what is best for you to heal, whether it's posting or lurking until you feel ready to post. I wish you all the best.
  9. Welcome to AS! 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.
  10. 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
  12. 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!
  13. 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!
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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
