  1. Hey confusednotokay, Welcome to AS. I'm glad you found us, but sorry you have reason to be here. You'll find lots of people who you can relate to on here (sadly!). We each have our own story, but we are all survivors. And there is definitely no blame. We're just here to support each other as best we can. I too was raped, and for a lot time I blanked it out. It took several discussions with a T (therapist - often shortened to T on this site) to tell me I wasn't going mad and it was actually rape. So I can relate to you. See you around the boards.

  13. Hi, Welcome (back) to AS. I'm so sorry you have a reason to be here. Please don't beat yourself up. The recovery journey is not linear. There will be good times and there will be bad times. We just have to learn to ride the waves as best we can. Coming here and chatting with people is a great coping strategy that you can add to your arsenal. Take care, Forest x
  14. Welcome to AS - I'm sorry you have a reason to be here. But you absolutely belong. Coersing someone into something sexual is abuse. We don't compare - everyone's story is equally valid. Sitting with you as you begin to work through this. Forest x
