  1. Hi Valdahar, Welcome to AfterSilence. I'm so sorry for what you experienced as a child. Nobody deserves to be hurt, especially a child. You have found a very supportive site with many understanding and kind members. We are here for you; you are not alone. Congrats on taking steps...reaching out here and giving therapy another try. Sometimes it takes more than one try to find the right fit with a T. It can be a process, but can be worthwhile, if you stay with it. Feel free to look around the community. I wish you the best as you continue to move forward on this path we call he
  2. Hi Cheyenne and welcome. I am very sorry for the abuses you endured and the struggles you have faced. It is never ok for someone to hurt another this way...yet it happens. It was never deserved. It is common, as well, for us to distort our own facts. Acknowledging what happened is truly difficult, yet a brave thing to do. I'm glad you were able to take this step. I am glad you have a supportive partner and now have found our community for even more support. Feel free to look around the community and interact where you feel the most comfortable. Wishing you the best on this journey
  3. Sadly, that is common. You would be surprised how many people go thru this. It's the one drawback of a place like this...we constantly compare. When we do that, we tend to talk ourselves out of the support we do deserve. Tho I am glad you found your way back, I'm sorry you fell into the trap many of us do. I'm sorry you endured additional trauma but do know all your trauma is validated here. You deserve support on your most recent trauma, as well as ones further in the past. Take it as you go, tho. If you need to concentrate more on healing from the hurt your ex inflicted right now, that
  4. Hi Cae, Welcome back to the community. I'm sorry for your past traumas, and now the most recent one. It is never ok for someone to hurt you like that. He was a jerk to break your trust and your heart. I'm not sure how long ago you were here, but I do see this the same supportive place as in years past. I'm glad you remembered you are always welcome here. I wish you the best as you continue down this path we call healing. Mary back.

  6. Hi Happy Girl. Welcome to AfterSilence. I am sorry for what you've been thru, but glad you have found us. This is a supportive, understanding and basically wonderful community of good people looking to heal, just like you. You are not alone. It is nice you look for the positives in yourself, as often times it can be difficult for a survivor to do so. There is a worthiness in each of us that should never be tarnished because of another. Feel free to look around the site and interact when you feel comfortable in doing so. I wish you well on this journey we call healing. Ma
  7. Hi Imstrong and welcome. I am very sorry for all you've been thru and the struggles you have faced. You have found a supportive site with many understanding and kind members. We also accept you as you here. It must have been difficult to have support...at least until you were adopted by a wonderful couple you could call your parents. Many times, abusive homes have no support element for those who have been hurt by one or more of that family. You prove that real parents aren't always birth parents. I'm happy you have that. Feel free to look around the community and interact where you
  8. Hi JustDuckey, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the experiences that led you here, but I am glad you found us. This is a very supportive community with so many understanding and kind members. You are not alone. It takes courage to reach out and remember...we've all been that new kid, so we know what that is like. Feel free to look around the site and interact where you feel the most comfortable. Wishing you the best as you continue down this path, we call healing. Mary
  9. Hi SummerSky. Welcome to AfterSilence. I am so sorry for the trauma you've endured and the struggles you still face. It was unfair and undeserved. You have found a very supportive community, tho, with so many understanding and kind members. You are not alone. I think the feeling of being recognized is somewhat common and somewhat normal...and we all tend to overthink at times. We do our best to safeguard in every and any way we can, and you have privacy as to your personally identifiable information. Those of us on staff will do everything we can to, as @Finchy mentioned above, have

  11. Hi Sara and welcome to the community. I am very sorry for what has brought you here, but you have found a very supportive community with so many understanding and kind members. You are not alone. It's a very big step to reach out, which no one takes so easily. I am glad you felt comfortable enough to take that plunge. It's ok to take your time, but feel free to look about.

  12. Hi finding_a_path, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you've endured. It was unfair and undeserved. You say the trauma ended a year ago? I am at least glad you are away from the abuser. It can be very difficult to find your healing path when abuse continues. Tho, the abuse is over, we understand here that struggles still persist long after. You have found a very supportive community tho, with many understanding and kind members. You are not alone. I personally think this is why most of us find our way here. To find others who understand and to not be so alone wi
  13. Hi Confused. Welcome to AfterSilence. I am so sorry for what you went thru 2 years ago and the struggles you still face. Many times, we do not understand...processing can be difficult, but you took a big stem to acknowledge and accept that something was wrong. It took me decades to do that. You will find this a very supportive community with many understanding and kind members here. Not only will you not find any blame here, but instead...validation. This is what so many survivors need, and this is the place to find it. I am glad your therapist recommended you reach out. Take
  14. Did you know we have veterans on our site?

    I won't call them out, as they may not want the attention, but do want to acknowledge their sacrifice and service. You know who you are. 

    We thank you for your service. :throb:
