  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. Hi @pnut 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 wonderful, caring community and we are all here to help each other heal. Talking and sharing with other survivors can be helpful for the healing process and can help you feel less alone. It is never too late to being the healing process. It is normal for survivors not to fully process what happened to them until months or years later. The healing process can be hard, but you will get through it. Never forget how strong and brave you are. I'm glad to hear that you are working with a therapist. 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. If you have any questions about the site, don't be afraid to reach out. I wish you all the best and hope you end up finding this site to be as helpful as I do.

      Thank you Ian and Mary. I feel a little better today.

      That is a step in the right direction at least, Snmls. Very happy to hear that. Just have to take the small things at times so it's not too overwhelming.

      Inner turmoils can be hard enough without all this outer chaos. It was nice to see some sense of justice being possible today going forward at least. Though it is all nowhere near enough.
