  1. Hi @TheatreKidJayde 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 community and we are all here to help each other heal. It sounds like the feelings you are experiencing are normal. While there is no right way to process trauma, it is common for survivors to feel extra emotional sometimes and numb other times. Sometimes our emotions can just get to be so much, that the brain just tries to shut them down and not process any of them. By joining this site, you are taking steps toward healing and overtime you will feel more control over your emotions. You are welcome to come to this site and post and share whenever you need support. We are all here for you. Wishing you the best.

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.

  15. 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!
