  1. Seeking healing

    Hello, @TXAngel78. Welcome to AS.
  2. Just looking for support

    Hello, @Gom Jabbar. Welcome to AS.
  3. Newbie Saying Hello

    Hello, @Out of the Ashes, welcome to AS. It is very hard to open up after holding so tightly to your story for so long. I didn’t tell any of my story for 10/15 years and only then a statement to a friend. It has taken me an additional 15 years to be able to start to loosen my grip. The supportive group here at AS has been a huge encouragement to me in that. All that said, please take your time to feel comfortable here. Look around. Read other’s posts. Reply as feels safe to you. Telling your story is always for you and your choice. No one here will rush you ... & AS will be here for you when you’re ready to share. It is ok to take some time to get to know us and feel safe.

  6. New Here, and Saying Hello

    Hi, @newcomgray. Welcome to AS. The best advice I received when I first joined was to take some time to just read through things. As you look around, you will find places - threads - to respond to. Take as much time as you need to look around & then post as you feel comfortable.

    Hello, @Nicole777. Welcome to AS. I remember feeling entirely overwhelmed with the sheer number of posts & the amount of information I didn’t know when I first joined. Take your time as you begin to look around & read or post as you feel comfortable.
