  1. The Inner Child Thread

    Thank you for being strong, brave, and solid through all the insanity. I have your back; I will take care of you. Not to worry any longer. I will listen to you and I will love you no matter what. You do not have to be afraid - nothing and no one can hurt you any more. I hear you when you call to me, when you are sad, when you feel lonely, when you are hungry. I promise to take care of you and give you what you need. You must promise me to give me time to hear and understand. This way, we continue to take care of each other.
  2. Hi All

    Hi and welcome to AS. I hope you find the healing I have found here.
  3. I Am New And Eager/scared

    Hi Rhea - welcome to AS. You are one of us - survivors - and you belong here.
  4. I Am New And Need Help!

    Hi Mariska - welcome to AS. I hope you reach out to someone, maybe at your school or the number that was posted above, because it's hard to get help without telling someone if your parent(s) are in denial. They can help you sort it out and get some help. Take care honey.
  5. Hi, I'm New Here

    Hi Rosie - welcome to AS. I hope it helps you as much as it has been helping me to read the posts and reply.

    Hi Bloo - welcome to AS. Take your time finding your way around.
  7. Introduction...don't Know Where To Begin

    Hi hon, welcome to AS. It really helps to read the posts; they help me remember the things I don't want to remember and when I remember, things get better for me. It's a hard journey, but you have survived and you are here. Take care of yourself. I know the feeling of not wanting to be touched and maybe your husband will understand that for a time, you would like to not be touched. I don't know what your relationship is like, but if someone loves you, they are pretty understanding. Just keeping coming on the board and see where it takes you.
  8. Help!

    Hi blue - welcome to AS. I am so sorry you had to go through that at such a young age. These emotions do come up and bite us on the a** when we least expect it. It's really normal, esp. since you never told anyone before. The reality of it is like a huge shock all over again. It's great that your mom believes you and is willing to take some action. My suggestion would be to either look in the phone book for counselors who specialize in trauma (females if you are not comfortable with men like me) or get a referral to one from your local rape crisis center. It might be/feel scary to talk to the rape crisis center but remember that you are only getting a referral - you don't have to tell them anything. Or you might find some good support from them but either way, if you are not comfortable with the counselor that was recommended, do not go there. I wish you well and if you need to talk, please pm me and I will answer. Take care of yourself.
  9. Just Registered Yesterday

    Hi and welcome to the board. I'm really sorry that you had to go through that.
  10. I'm New And It's My Birthday

    Welcome to AS and Happy Belated Birthday! Take care.
  11. Hello Everyone..

    Hi Jess, welcome to AS. I hope that you can feel comfortable here talking about the trauma - it really helps.

    That is a beautiful analogy - thank you and I will use it.

    LOL - thank you for clarifying that - I could not for the life of me figure out what "butterflies fly information" could possibly mean. I have a vivid imagination and the vision I had in my mind - - - - - - - well, actually, it wasn't that bad. I thought how gentle and healing it might be if a butterfly took the information away where it needed to go and we just healed from it like magic. That would be so great. I love butterflies.
  14. Hi, I'm New

    Hey, welcome to AS. I heard that we are never quite done with the trauma but that we can get to a much better place. Sounds like you were at that place and just had a "little" set back. I hope that doesn't sound minimizing because it's not meant to be. It is meant to be positive for you in that you might be much further along than you feel right now. I hope that is true for you and that you can find support and healing here at AS.
  15. Where I've Been Hiding

    Hey Holly, welcome back. It's encouraging that you didn't feel you needed to be here any more. I hope that happens for me some time.
