  2. Newcomer here

    Hi Laura, Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the abuse you endured, but be assured that you have found a very supportive site. Our members are very understanding and kind. I must admit that I was on a similar path just over three years ago. Finding AS was a turning point for me, as I hope it will be for you. It takes courage to reach out and hopefully one of many that you will take with us. I wish you the best on this healing journey. Mary BTW...love your tattoo.

  4. Hello

    Hi Dakota, Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for what you experienced the last two years, but you have found a very supportive site. I'm sorry some have a tough time understanding, unfortunately that happens too often. Sometimes people who have not experienced what we have do not have a clue what we really go thru. This is what I like about AS. Everyone here, in one way or another, understands and supports one another. I am glad you found us. I do wish you the best on this journey of healing. Mary

  8. Hello, Looking to heal....

    Hi Rain. Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma you endured last September, but do know that you have found a very supportive site. I am sorry others are supporting the wrong person here, because what happened to you was wrong and unfair. Do know that what you feel is normal for what you've been thru. But for my two cents, the ugly, dirty low-down one is not you. You did nothing wrong and he should be ashamed. I am glad you found us. Please take your time and look around. I wish you the best on your healing journey. Mary

  10. LGBTQ+ Fourm

    Hi Angel, I'm not sure if I am understanding you correctly. Are you requesting the creation of a forum for LGBTQ? We do have a LGBT and Questioning sub-forum in the Survivor Connections forum. If this is what you mean, here is the link. http://www.aftersilence.org/forum/index.php?/forum/91-survivor-connections/ If it is not what you are requesting, could you elaborate a little more? Mary

  12. Hi I’m new, ramble, and friendless

    Hi Heymehey, Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma you endured two years ago and your struggles, not only with the aftermath, but with finding help where you are, as well. The members here tho, are very understanding and kind. You are not alone. Do know what happened to you was not normal, nobody has the right to hurt another, but your reactions are normal for the situation. We all wish that we healing was faster and easier, but the truth is that it takes time and patience. Also a bit of support goes a long way. I wish you well on this journey of healing. Mary
  13. My heart is in pain

    Hi Leahkana, Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for what you went thru. The mind is a complicated thing and sometimes tries to protect us. I am sorry for what happened to your daughter, as that must be an unbearable knowledge to hold. You have found a very supportive site tho, with many kind and understanding members. You are not alone. I wish you the best as you begin this healing journey. Mary
  14. Hey, I'm New

    Hi mountainlion, Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for what you endured so recently, but do know you have found a very supportive site. It is sad that so many of us understand trauma and struggle in its aftermath, but it is also nice that we have each other. Take your time to look around and interact when you feel comfortable. You will never be judged or pressured. Everything you feel is normal for very unnormal circumstances. You are not alone. It takes great courage to reach out, so do not underestimate that. I wish you the best as you begin this healing journey. Mary
