  5. Hello ForeverRecovering. Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you have endured, but do know you have found a very supportive site. Our members are understanding and kind and we foster an environment that is respectful and healing for any survivor looking for such a community. I think that you will find it surprising and refreshing how accepted you may be by many of the female members. I think many, like myself, try not to even view members by gender, but by the support and the healing they want and need because of what someone put you thru. Do know you never deserv

  7. Hi J, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what you have witnessed when you were so young. A child should not be any part of sexual behavior, even if it is just by witnessing this. You, as a child, should have been removed from such situations. Child Sexual Abuse does NOT require physical contact, but is any sexual behavior a child is exposed to that can have lasting physical, psychological, or emotional affects. We acknowledge and validate your experience and welcome you to our community. As Wanna has mentioned, we are an international site. We have members from many countr
  8. Hi Jane, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what happened to you about 10 months ago and the struggles you are facing. It is unfair and undeserved, but your questions are completely natural and normal, tho we rarely understand why...because it means understand a mind of such a vile person, which is not something we typically do. It was not your fault tho. You did nothing wrong. We know that struggle and you are not alone. You will find much support here with our many understanding and supportive members. Feel free to look around and interact where and when you are comfortab

  10. Hi FleetwoodMacFan, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry about the trauma you have endure. Being hurt is undeserved and unfair. You have found a very supportive site tho, with many understand and kind members. You are not alone. We do have a list of guidelines, but the key to it all is respect for your fellow survivor, as I see Goldraindrops has mentioned. You may always ask, as well, if there is something specific you are concerned with, otherwise I think you will do fine. I am glad that you were referred to join a community and decided to reach out to us. It isn't easy wal
  11. Hi Stronger, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for all you have been thru. Abuse is never right, fair, or deserved, but you will find much support here. Our members are understanding and kind. They do get it. I do think you are very right that so many people do not understand what we go thru, if they haven't experienced it themselves. Tho we wish this on no one, it is a bit easier finding others who do understand. Feel free to look around and interact where you are comfortable. There is no pressure, so go at your own pace. We are here for you! I wish you well as you continue t

    Hi

    Hi camphore, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what happened to you a few days ago and for the not so recent abuses. You are not alone. This community is filled with many understanding and kind members. It takes courage to reach out, so I commend you on that. I personally think it helps to have others who understand. Cute furry bundles do help, too. I understand that well. I think we all feel much the way you do, at one time or another. Be assured tho...it is not your fault. Nobody had the right to hurt you. They are solely to blame. Look around the site and interact
  14. Hi Venusian, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the abuses you endured, but you will find much support here. Our community is filled with understanding and kind people. You are not alone. You are accepted and validated. How you describe it has been like how it's been for many of us. We convince ourselves to deny it or suppress it or repress it. I do think tho, we all come to a point that it doesn't work so well anymore. It seems you may be ready. It is a big step. I wish you many more steps forward as you begin this journey we call healing. Mary
  15. Hello Survivor, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry you endured abuse as a child. This is never right or deserved. You have found a very supportive community with many understanding and kind people. You are not alone. It is true your husband likely doesn't understands what you went thru and struggles that just don't go away. You are like many of us who have tried suppressing or repressing this memories, but I know...it doesn't just go away. Facing it tho is a huge step. Do not doubt this. Feel free to look around the site and interact when and where you feel comfortable. It is a
