  1. Hello all!

    Hi @rakit Fellow Canadian here! I want to welcome you as well, and I hope you will find a sense of community here, because what we go through can make us feel very isolated. I am glad your therapist suggested the forum.

    Hi @Rian, I know it can take a long time to start to talk about things, I was the same, and it's ok. It is totally up to you what to share and when, we are here to listen when you are ready. Sometimes it can be hard to put words to our experience. I wonder if there is one aspect of your current struggle that you could write about? I wish you all the best, and welcome.

    Hello @Chise, Welcome to AS! I am sorry for the trauma that brought you here, and it sounds like you are having a tough time and have lost interest in a lot of things you used to do.

    Hello and welcome to AS! I am glad you found our site. I can understand the feeling of lots of emotions when you first start T, it was tough in the beginning for me too. It takes some time to process everything, but later on, I look back and realize it's better than it was. I hope that you will find this a supportive community where people 'get it' and hear you, as I have. best wishes g

    Hi Rosie, I am so sorry to hear you were assaulted a second time! It is not unusual to have a different set of feelings and reactions to a different assault, I've experienced that as well. I hope that you will find once again that this is a supportive place to feel heard.
