  1. Hi Everyone

    Hi, Kam. Welcome to AS. I am so sorry for what happened that brought you here. I have found AS to be a very supportive & caring place. It has been so freeing to realize I was not as alone or abnormal as I felt before coming here. Talking is good when you’re ready, so please take as much time as you need to feel safe - no one here will rush you into sharing anything until you are ready.
  2. Hello

    Hello, @Healing4Life! Welcome to AS! I am so sorry for what brought you here, but am glad you have found us. I like your username & the meaning behind it. I am glad that you have a T and that she has been helpful in processing all of this. It is great that she responded so well when you told her. That helps so much! Take as much time as you need feel to feel comfortable. I look forward to getting to know you. HiddenHeart
  3. New here

    Hello, @kerrij91. Welcome to AS. One of the things I have realized after being here is that I am not as alone or abnormal as I thought before coming here. I hope that will ring true for you, too, as you begin to read & post here.
  4. Feel So Hollow

    Hello, @Hollow19. I am so sorry for what has brought you here. I am glad that the person you were chatting with suggested AS to you. One of the things I have come to realize from being here is that I am not as alone or abnormal as I had felt. I hope that will ring true for you too as you get to know us. Going through the motions can feel so draining ... but it is sometimes what we need to do ... to keep moving. No one will rush you into sharing here, so feel free to post as you feel comfortable.
  5. Another newbie

    Hi, @Curious_george. Quite a few of us didn’t say anything to anyone for many years after. I have found AS to be a very supportive place ... & it was helpful to me to read what others had posted and realize I was not as alone as I felt. Take your time to feel comfortable here. Feel free to read or post as you wish to. No one here will rush you.
  6. Hi There

  7. Hi!

    Hi, @Howie. Welcome to AS. I am happy that you have found us but sorry for what you experienced that brought you here. I have found AS to be a very supportive and safe place to read and process and begin to share my story. I hope you will find it to be a safe place for you, too. HiddenHeart
  8. Hi - I'm new to After Silence

    Hi, @Belle_in_Australia I think that has been one of the biggest benefits for me with coming here - realizing that I’m not as alone or abnormal as I felt. I hope you will find that true for you, too.
  9. Hello, 2Siamese. Welcome to AS. That therapist sounds horrible. I am so glad that you have found someone new & better ... & that they are helping you to move forward. When I first came here I did a lot of reading ... it was so helpful to me to realize I wasn’t as alone as I thought. Cheers to you for joining & posting an intro. Reaching out like this can be hard, but I have found it is worth it.

    Welcome to AS. Talking is extremely hard, but I'm beginning to believe it is worth the struggle to be free. As others have said, take your time to feel comfortable. Read what feels safe, post when you're ready - no one will rush you here.
