  1. Hi Helianthus, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am so sorry for all you've been thru and the struggles that you still currently face. You have found a very supportive community with many understanding and kind members. You are not alone. Blanket statements can be difficult, and I understand your frustration. Healing is an up and down path with many twists. We are fighters to continue this path, but it is not easy. It helps tho when you have others, like the survivors here, that walk with you. Feel free to look around. Interact where you are the most comfortable. I wish you many forwa
  2. Hi WolfMoon, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am sorry for whatever you endured that brought you here, but you found a community filled with supportive, understanding and kind members. It's not fair any of us need to be here, but it is a blessing that we are not alone in this. It's common to think we can be over trauma easily, but it is far from the truth. What has happened is life-changing and it takes time to figure out how to move forward. I'm sorry this has happened to you, but you are not alone. Share your story when you're ready and/or pieces that might help you in doing so. M
  3. Hi there BlessedWithaVoice, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am so sorry you endured so much and still struggle with the after affects. It isn't fair or deserved. You have found a wonderfully supportive community with so many understanding and kind members. You are not alone. It is never too late to start that journey. I spent decades avoiding mine, until I found this site. Tho there is still work to do, acknowledging and facing what happened is such a big step for all of us, so I know this is a big step for you, too. I am glad you found us. Feel free to look about the site and jump

  5. Hello, MeBeMary. Thank you so much for my Christmas gift! I've not been on AS for a month (disappeared inside my own head for a while), so today is the first time I've seen my bracelet! You are so thoughtful. 'Stronger than the storm'. I can't get over how thoughtful that is! I still think in terms of the storm and stepping outside of it sometimes, so you are bang on with that.

    Thank you and Happy New Year! 💛

      You are very welcome. Stronger than the storm is something we should try to remember to do. Your mention of it made it the right choice for you. I'm glad you liked it. :lol:  

      Happy New Year to you, as well! :throb: 

  6. Hi Moe, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am so sorry you've experienced trauma and that you are struggling. You will find tons of support from our wonderful group of understanding members. You are not alone. Healing can be a confusing process, I think we all can relate to that. Sometimes we need to try a few things to see which path is really the most beneficial. My paths usually had me going where only denial lived. I do think we come to a point tho where we need to face what happened to be able to move forward. It isn't easy, but I think necessary...and easier with others who get it. Th
  7. Hi Notacreativeusername, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am so sorry for what you've been thru, it was so wrong and undeserved. You have found a very supportive community with many understanding and kind members. You are not alone. You can take your time and look around. There is never pressure to share more than you are comfortable. You will see tho, just by reading, you can relate to so many...and they to you, in experience or struggles. It's sad yet comforting to know that we are all traveling this road together. I am glad you have found us. I wish you the best as you begin this
  8. Hello Safe44 and welcome. I am so sorry for all you've been thru and the now un-suppressed struggles you are facing. What happened to you was not deserved, but you have found a wonderful community. Our members are truly supportive and understanding. You are not alone. The first step is always the hardest, it is for sure. Facing instead of denying? I've been there myself. The journey is not easy and not always smooth, but you definitely have a foundation of support with us. Feel free to look around and interact where it is comfortable. Wishing you well and wishing you many more step
  9. Hi Faithish and welcome. I am sorry you have reason to be here, but glad you came. This community is filled with understanding and supportive members. You are not alone. We will not rush you or judge you. Validation and kindness tho, is around every corner. I got use to the place just looking around to start. Comfort grew but was never rushed. We understand this first hello is a mighty big step. I'm proud of you for taking it. I am sure more steps will come. Wishing you well. Mary

    Hi Mic and welcome. I am very sorry you have traumatic experiences as a child, but you have found a very supportive site. This community is filled with understanding and supportive members. Healing isn't always a smooth path but do know you are not alone. I see that you have figured out how to create a topic, it does take a bit to get used to, especially if forum communities are new to you. Your introduction is just right for this area, as well. The staff is always available, if you have questions. Take your time and look around the community and feel free to interact where
  12. Hi Trying To Heal Anger. Welcome to AfterSilence. I am sorry for the trauma that you've endured, but I am glad you have found us. This community is filled with understanding and kind members. You will find tons of support. I do apologize for the options available, as we do welcome any and every survivor, no matter how they identify. We do have an option that you can use in addition to the offered male/female options. I will post it below. Feel free to look around the community and interact where you feel the most comfortable. I wish you the best on your healing journey.
  13. Hi LOB22 and welcome. I am sorry you have reasons to be here, but glad you were referred. This is a supportive community with many understanding and kind members. You are not alone. In general, a topic can be a few lines or a bunch of paragraphs. You are in the Welcome area, so brief is best, as this is a public area. Most of the other forums are private, so they will only be viewed and responded to by registered members. You will see PUBLIC: before a forum, just to let you know. Looking about the community is the best way to become familiar. You can reply to others or create

  15. Hi theydoexist and welcome. I am very sorry for what you went thru last week, but you have found a supportive site. Our members are kind and understanding. You are not alone. What happened was not your fault. You accepted a ride, not to be traumatized. This jerk made a choice to invalidate your choice and that is so wrong. I'm sorry you are still hurting. You are like many, not to share your experience or seek medical attention. I would be a hypocrite myself to tell you to do either, but please keep them as possibilities for yourself. To hold on to such trauma and deal with it on you
