  3. Welcome @A Long Time Ago to After Silence. I’m sorry for what brought you here but I’m happy you are here reaching out for support. Good job taking this step in your healing process. You are not alone and what happened to you wasn’t your fault. It's understandable to be nervous to post online but since we have anonymous usernames we are protected. That stinks the site only has male and female options. There are others here who are non-binary as well, so you are not alone in that. @snmls offers a good suggestion about listing your preferred pronouns.

  5. Welcome to After Silence. I’m so sorry to hear this happened to you. Some rape crisis centers have programs specifically for people who have been recently assaulted. We have a list of resources or if you are in the US you can contact RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) for a referral. I will link those two resources down below: http://www.aftersilence.org/forum/index.php?/forum/102-public-resources/ https://www.rainn.org/ Also, please remember to be kind to yourself during this difficult time. As far as whether or not you contact your rapist, I recommend you do what will keep you the safest. If contacting him will put you in danger, it is simply not worth it. You deserve safety. Take your time exploring here and post when you are ready. If you have any questions feel free to message me.
  6. Welcome @Lucy1603 to After Silence. I’m sorry for what brought you here but I’m happy you are here reaching out for support. Good job taking this step in your healing process. You are not alone and what happened to you wasn’t your fault. For me I am currently doing video counseling sessions with a counseling center near me that normally offers in-person counseling, as they are offering it now due to the pandemic. I know a lot of places are currently offering telephone sessions as well. If you are in the US you can search for therapists here: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/therapists Some counseling centers seem to be offering it for the long term as well, I'm not sure if you are not wanting to go to an office because of the pandemic or for other reasons.

    Welcome @tmac to After Silence. I’m sorry for what brought you here but I’m happy you are here reaching out for support. Good job taking this step in your healing process. You are not alone and what happened to you wasn’t your fault. I'm sorry to hear you are having issues with your mother as well. Regarding the therapist, I want you to know that if you find a decent therapist there is a lot more they should be able to do. I went to trauma therapy for a while and it was much more than just imaging giving my abuser a piece of my mind, it was also about reprocessing memories so they don't hurt me as much, finding healthier ways to cope with the affects of abuse, and many other things.

  9. Welcome @Unsurewhat2do to After Silence. I’m sorry for what brought you here but I’m happy you are here reaching out for support. Good job taking this step in your healing process. You are not alone and what happened to you wasn’t your fault. Unfortunately I don't have any advice to offer on this manner as my abuser died when I was six years old so my situation is a little different. However, I want you to know I support you in whatever you decide. Take your time exploring here and post when you are ready. If you have any questions feel free to message me.
  10. Welcome @IAMKIRA to After Silence. I’m sorry for what brought you here but I’m happy you are here reaching out for support. Good job taking this step in your healing process. You are not alone and what happened to you wasn’t your fault. I recommend you call a domestic violence hotline. I'm not sure where you live but I will leave a link below that has listings in multiple countries. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_domestic_violence_hotlines Also, I think there may be a shelter that is willing to take your son as well. Some shelters allow children plus he is 16 anyway so he is not a young child so that may make it easier. Yes, it is still rape even if it is your husband. Marriage doesn't equal consent plus drunk people can't legally consent. He took advantage of you. Take your time exploring here and post when you are ready.
