Hi SignIn I am so sorry for all that you have gone through. None of that was your fault at all--it doesn't matter if you were drinking or not. It does not make what happened to you your fault at all. You did not ask to be hurt in any way, shape, or form at all. We all believe you here. I kept one of my cases of sexual assault a secret for over a decade now, so it is not a shock to me that you've kept your case of sexual assault hidden for so long now. It can be difficult to open up about any of these things. AfterSilence has been helping me open up about my experiences. I hope
Hi Lauren, welcome to AS. I'm sorry for what you have been through. Our pasts can and do certainly haunt us and try to continue harming us, even if we don't want them to haunt us or hurt us. It is not your fault what you went through, and I hope everything goes better for you from hereon. Hugs if okay?
Thank you all so much for your encouraging words! It has truly helped me tremendously to see all of your messages and know that I'm not alone here. Thank you all for being so welcoming here. Thank you thank you thank you
Hi, I'm healingmary. I'm new. I just joined the site. I was recommended by my current therapist to join this site so I can heal from the trauma I have endured. I have so many doubts that anything ever even happened to me, but I also have proof that trauma has occurred in my own life. I hope I can be able to share my story here and be heard. Thanks, ~healingmary
