  1. Hi, I've never done this before

    Hello, @scarlettpoppy, Welcome to AS! I am so sorry for the trauma you experienced that brought you here. What your morher’s ex & your “friend” did was not ok. I have found that telling parts of my story to safe people or here at AS has been very helpful to me ... however not everyone is a safe person. Please feel like you can take as much time as you need to look around and to feel safe here. No one is going to rush you to tell your story or share any details. As you feel safe, you will find people here to support you.
  2. Hey

    Hello, @kmdiamond17. Welcome to AS. I am so sorry for the trauma you experienced that brought you here, but am glad you have found AS. You are most definitely not alone here. I remember being so relieved after I joined and started reading what others had posted ... it was (& still sometimes is) surreal to realize I am not as alone or as abnormal as I had previously thought ... what I felt and thought was ok & no one here was going to tell me how I felt was wrong - & in fact they even understood things I felt that I didn’t even know how to say.
  3. Hello Again

    Hi, @Hiddenstars! Welcome back to AS. I agree with Iheartcupcakes, AS is lucky to have you back.
  4. New here

    Hello, @Serenity165, welcome to After Silence. I am so glad you have found us here, but very sorry for the trauma that brought you here. I have found here that realizing I am not as alone as I felt or thought has meant so much to me.
  5. Introduction

    Hello, @ABS55, welcome to After Silence. I am so sorry for the trauma you experienced. What was done to you was not your fault & the shame is not yours. It is so sad to me that so many people can make it so hard to speak your truth. You have found a very safe and supportive place here at AS.
  6. Healing yourself is connected with healing others

    Hello, @Hugakeribear, welcome to After Silence. I am so sorry for the trauma that happened to bring you here, but am glad you have found us. I know I have found AS to be a very supportive and safe place to begin to talk about things I never said. It is a brave thing to decide to ask for help & I think it is something that you have to be ready to do for it to have the greatest benefit. That is a thought provoking quote ... I think there is some truth to it. Thank you for sharing it.
  7. Hello!

    Hello, @KeLLe, welcome to AS. That was a very strong thing you did. Sometimes people who love in a healthy way get upset when they find out about the things that happened. Try to remember you didn’t do this to her - the person who hurt you did.
  8. So happy to have found this forum!

    Hello, @PhoenixRoxanne, welcome to AS.
  9. Hi and Thanks

    I understand that! I have found it takes time & intention to drop that mask. I have found AS to be a safe place to try to do that.

    Hi, @Angelbee, welcome to AS. I am also an introvert - though most people do not believe me Remember to take as much time as you need to look around and read to feel safe for you. I hope you find this place to be as comforting and safe as I have.
