  1. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). Just because we are all social distancing doesn't mean we can't still participate in SAAM activities. Be extra kind to yourself this month.

    Hello

  13. Hi @onedayhero First welcome to AS. I want to say that you are absolutely welcome here. I agree 100% with what Capulet said. Abuse or trauma does not have to be physical and if no one was there to stop you from witnessing those inappropriate behaviors at such a young age then it is possible to see how that could impact you later on. We don't compare traumas here. Just having to face trauma is enough. Trauma is trauma and we are all here trying to heal from it. I'm sure you will be able to find people here that can relate to your experiences and help you to feel less alone. Because you are a Secondary Survivor you do not have access to the "Share your story" forum. If you talk with @Capulet you might be able to change your member category.
