  1. Hi @MyraG Welcome to AS. I'm sorry for the trauma you have experienced, but I'm glad you found the site and decided to join. This is a caring and supportive community and we are all here to help each other heal. It is never to late to begin the healing journey. I'm really proud of you for recently opening up about your trauma to your therapist. The healing process can be tough, but you are strong enough to get through it. Talking with other survivors can help you to feel less alone. You are welcome to post and share on the site whenever you feel comfortable. Thanks for sharing the pictures of your dogs. They are so cute! I love the pride flag stuffed toy.
  2. Hi @A Long Time Ago. Welcome to AS. I'm sorry for the trauma that brought you here, but I'm glad you found the site and decided to join. This is a welcoming and supportive place and we are all here to help each other heal. You did not deserve what happened to you and what happened to you was not your fault. There is nothing wrong with you as a person. You are not broken. You are a survivor. Opening up and talking about trauma can be scary, but it can also be very healing. Talking with other survivors can also help you to feel less alone. You never have to share anything you don't want to on this site and there is no pressure to post. Take some time looking around the site and then jump in whenever you feel comfortable. If you have any questions about the site, please reach out. We are here to help. I hope you end up finding this site to be as helpful as I do. ps. I'm sorry that the site only currently has male and female as the options for gender. It is something that the site staff are aware of and are hoping to fix. You can however go to your edit profile page and put something in the "member title" box. There you can state you are non-binary or list your pronouns. It will appear below your member name when you post, like how mine says "braver than she believes." If you need help figuring that out, just let me know!
  3. Had my session with my new T today. She seems nice and I think there is a chance we will work well together. But it made me fully process that my old T is gone and that made me sad.

      I'm glad the new T has much potential. You deserve the best match possible.

      Sorry, you miss your old T. I'm sure you will remember and be thankful for all she has helped you with.

      :hug:

  5. Have my first session with my new T tomorrow. A little nervous. After spending over four years with my previous T, I feel like I'm starting therapy all over again.

      Sitting with you. I think it would be normal to be a little nervous. Remember an adjustment period is ok. Hoping the new one turns out to be someone you bond well with.

  6. Hi and welcome to AS. I'm very sorry for the trauma you faced, but I'm glad you found the site and decided to join. This is a safe and supportive community and we are all here to help each other heal. It is never too late to start the healing process. I can understand your concern about not wanting to hurt the family, but what you need to remember is that any hurt that is brought upon the family will be the result of his actions. You did nothing wrong and did not deserve what happened to you. It is your choice whether you tell them or not. It is a personal decision that you will have to make on your own, but whatever you decide is okay. There is no right or wrong choice as long as you are doing what is best for you. Please know that we are all here to support you. Don't be afraid to reach out for support.

I'm sorry you received an unexpected and confusing response from them when you opened up. Hopefully, you can continue to talk with your T to try and get more clarification and some more support.
