  4. Hi Miss Tattoo, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what happened to you 9 years ago, but you will find tons of support here. Our community is filled with understanding and kind members. You are not alone. It was very brave of you to submit your story, even anonymously. Telling and sharing an abusive story is never easy. I am sorry that you worry at being recognized. If there are many stories, I would think that the chances are not very good, especially after 9 years. He did do something awful, but you are not alone in feeling timid about possible backlash. This is why the majority of survivors never come forward. It isn't fair, but victim-blaming is sadly common and not many of us want to be put thru it again. So even telling your story the way you did, was very brave. Do not doubt that. I am glad that you decided to reach out and I wish you the best on your journey of healing. Mary

  8. Hi sunnyskies, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you experienced 11 years ago, but you have found a very supportive site. I am sorry it cam back after seeing your abuser...a nasty trigger to let you know that what you went thru was wrong and traumatic and it is always sad that they (or the majority of they) still walk around like they are uneffected. You are right, reaching out is a very good and forward step. I do wish you many more of these forward steps as you renew this journey of healing. Mary

    Hello

    Hi Tura, We spoke briefly yesterday, but wanted to give you an official welcome. So, welcome. I am very sorry tho that you have reasons to be here, but you will find tons of support. You are not alone. This site is to be used in a way that is helpful to you. If it is writing posts, relating in small ways, or just reading, it is your choice. Having 13 year olds would make me nervous, as well, so I understand you looking for another outlet. Be assured, this is a great place to be. Take your time and look around. Use your best judgement on where to post, it isn't often that a thread will be moved because of location, but if the rare instance occurs, one of the staff will let you know. Reaching out is always a scary, but big step. I am glad you have. I am wishing you more forward steps on this journey we call healing. Mary

Take your time to look around and jump in where you are comfortable. Please know that all your experiences, struggles and feelings are validated here. I am glad you decided to reach out and wish you the best as you find your way down this path in which we call healing. Mary

  22. Hi Akiraotome, Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what you endured that led you here, but do know that you will find tons of support. Our members are understanding and kind. I do understand the nervousness in just exactly what might be comfortable in sharing, but do know there is no pressure. Many will not even decide to talk about specific things, but perhaps of the struggles or feeling related to those things. It is really up to you. Regardless this is a welcoming community and perhaps just by reading a little at first might make you feel you can relate and not feel so alone with all the scary stuff inside. Wishing you the best in this journey we call healing. Mary
