  4. Hi and welcome to AS! I’m sorry you don’t have more support to talk and work things through, my family is similar in not going near anything heavy . I hope you’ll find this is a safe place to share, vent, discuss and be heard.

    Hello

    Hello and welcome to AS, @redmess! I am sorry for what you and the other survivors have been through, I know it's tough to start healing 40 years later, I started around the same time. I wish you all the best in your healing and welcome you to share with us here for support and validation as you go through this process.

  8. Hi and welcome! I’m glad your T suggested this community, and I hope you will feel less alone here, as I have. I am glad you got a second chance and I wish you all the best in healing, g
  9. Hi @LRPINE, Welcome to AS! I had a similar experience when I first joined many years ago. It is amazing how much comfort a little hug emoji can offer, when we've been so alone with all this pain for so long. It is a very supportive community here and sometimes a little goes a long way. We all understand this experience called surviving and try to help each other when we can. Sometimes a sitter is all we need Safe hugs to you if you want them

    Hi

    Hi @stormyfire, welcome to AS! I am sorry for what brings you here but glad you found our supportive community. It is difficult to feel alone and carrying an invisible weight, I hope you will feel less isolated here, that is one of the helpful things I found about being here. It's ok to be shy, and there is no pressure to share anything unless you want to. Sometimes taking your time feels safer and we want members to feel safe here. Please take your time and have a look around the site and feel free to post as much or as little as you like.
  12. Hi, and welcome to AS! I am sorry about your trauma and I hope that you can find some solace here among people who understand what you are going through.
  13. Hi @Aliss, Welcome to AS! I am glad you found our community. I understand how hard it is to talk to people in real life about things like what happened to us, and I also minimized what I went through but have learned that we each have our own experience of trauma that deserves support and validation and not comparison. I found being here for a while has helped me to talk about it more easily in my life now - what I find these days ironically is that others often can't hear it, even when I'm ok to talk about it. But here you can express anything you need to and it's a safe and nonjudgmental place.

    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,
  15. 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

    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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Hi Abby, Welcome back to AS I hope you find the support you need here. I`m also back in school after many years , doing a masters in psychology good luck with your studies and feel free to reach out here any time!
  21. Welcome back!! I hope your needed break was helpful and I hope you’re not struggling too much now either, but it’s good to see you again
  22. Hi and welcome to AS! You deserve to be heard and validated and supported. I hope you will find that here in this community.
  23. Hi and welcome to AS I'm glad you are finding your way around the site already, although sorry for what brought you here. I hope you will find many here can relate to your journey as well, all the best, g
  24. 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
