    Hi @Deadbolts, welcome to AS! I am truly sorry you were hurt as a child, remembering can be painful but also healing. You are not alone with the 'denial' part, it's often how we survived. I wish you the best in healing,

    Hi @emergingawareness, Welcome to AS! I am sorry for the trauma that led you here, and I'm sure the Epstein case is triggering for so many survivors right now. You are not alone, and have reached a safe place. I agree with you that self care is important! I remember a few years ago when a news story triggered me and I kept hearing it everywhere. I have done EMDR as well and I know how intense it can be, but I hope it helps you, I did find it helpful after the intensity wore off. I hope you will feel free to take your time and have a look around the forums here, and share as much or as little as you like, we are here to listen. I wish you the best in your path to healing, g

  4. Hey everyone

    HI @cal Welcome to AS! I am sorry for what happened to you and I know what it's like to struggle to talk to people about it. It is sometimes easier to talk in an anonymous place with others who have been through something similar and gets it. I hope that you will find the support you are seeking here in our community. It's definitely helped me with feeling isolated and I hope it does the same for you. I look forward to seeing you around the forums, take care g
  5. Hello and Introduction

    Hi Hope49, I am sorry for what happened to you 10 months ago, and I am glad you found our site. Many of us can relate to feeling isolated and that people close to us don' t really get it. It can take a long time to heal and more than just time is needed, support and validation can help too. I hope that you can find the support you need here and wish you all the best in your continued healing, g

    Hi Unl0v3d, welcome to AS! I am sorry for the trauma that brought you here. I am sure you will find others here who relate to what you've been through, and it is a supportive community. I also find I have a dark sense of humour sometimes and it does tend to be a stress reliever

  11. Still feeling it after 9 years

    Hi Mel Y, welcome to AS! I hope you will find that a supportive community will help you get to a deeper understanding of things. I am glad you had some T but it sounds like their approach was more of a surface one, which can help with coping for sure but maybe didn't quite get to the roots of how you are feeling. It is not uncommon to still be sorting things out years later, I know I still am. I hope you will less alone with things here. g
