  1. Hi Satin, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what happened to you as a child. It was wrong and unfair. You will find support here, as our members are very understanding and kind. You are not alone. I do find that many survivors have a creative streak within them and I'm sure it can be therapeutic, both the art and the music. Feel free to check out our Healing Through Creativity forum, if you feel it is something you would like to share. I am glad you decided to reach out and join our community. I wish you well as you continue down this path we call healing. Mary
  2. Hi there, Ready. Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you endured so many years ago. I can relate, I found this site after denying and struggling for over 30 years. I felt helpless, alone and confused. I needed an outlet and I found this site, too. It is filled with so many understanding and supportive people. It is a safe haven to speak out and find ways to manage life better. I am glad that you have found us. I am glad you are still here! It means you are a fighter, if you realize it or not. Trying to find other ways is the brave way to go. Maybe not easy, but it

  11. Hi positivevibe, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what you have experienced and the struggles you face. This was never fair for you to experience. Nobody had the right to hurt you. You have found a supportive community tho, with many understanding and kind members. I agree with @snmls . Sadly, the trauma that is endured is nothing we can change. Healing is more of the discovery of what works with coping and managing these struggles better. Taking steps to find more better days, than not. It isn't always easy, I know. I am glad you reached out tho. I do feel that it
  12. Hi doibelonghere, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you have gone thru, as well of the struggles of an upcoming traumaversary. Nobody deserves to be abused in any way. Sadly, the legal system is lacking in many ways. I am sorry she is the one that is getting the sympathy. Survivors need understanding, and that too, is lacking within society. I am glad you decided to reach out. In regards to your user name, I will just say this...if you are hurting and struggling and need support and understand, the answer is yes. We accept you here and hope you find steps that
  13. Hi Nc0430, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry that you have experienced a trauma and are struggling. I cannot imagine a bigger trigger than the abuser trying to reestablish contact. I do hope that you are able to put in place ways where he is blocked from getting thru to you. He does not deserve to be in your life after what he has done. Do know that you will find support and understanding here. Hopefully making connections will help as you deal with these struggles. Feel free to look around and begin to interact where and when you feel comfortable. There is no pressure, but we
