  2. Silent No More

    HI @Aerlyn, and welcome to AS! I am so sorry for the years of abuse and trauma you have endured. AS is a great place to start the healing process and your not alone here many of us have either waited to talk about the abuse, pushed it down and hid it away for years or couldnt talk about it at all with family or community. AS is a very supportive, kind and caring place filled with people from all manner of differnt backgrounds and trauma and abuse we come here to support care for and lift up others and get our needs met too, its a very safe place. Your free to share as little or as much as fast or slow as you want too. I am looking forward to seeing you around the forums. BraveOne
  3. Breaking the Silence

    Hey @Redness, welchome to AS. Youve found a very supportive site with lots of caring people. I am so sorry for the trauma you endured 5 years ago, your not alone in waiting to talk about it, I waited 10 years before I dealt with my struggles and I'm still dealing with them. You are free to share as little or as much as you want at a pace that is comfortable with you, I know this can feel a bit overwhelming at first. I'm glad you found us here and I am looking forward to seeing you around the forums. Your are worth the struggle and you can heal. BraveOne

  5. First time here

    Hi @Nolongerstrong, welcome to AS. Though I am Sorry for the trauma that brought you to us. First of all you have found a very warm inviting caring site full of people who can listen lend a shoulder to cry on and help rebuild a good foundation. My Name hasn't always been BraveOne I started out here as oneinamillion because I felt like I was lost in a crowd and no one would be able to help me and 2 years of being here has helped me out tremendously and I hope to see the same for you. You did an incredibly challenging first step down the road to healing by joining our site, and it just prooves to me how strong you are even if your shaken right now. I feel like AS is one of the best things I've done for myself in the healing process and I hope that you too will get there. Take your time share as little or as much as you want about anything get to know people here make friends see that your not alone and its ok your here and your safe with us. Remember you are both stronger then you think and far braver then you know. BraveOne P.S. But you can call me One its nice to meet you ;)
  6. So... Hey

    Hi and welcome to AS @Youngbellbird. Youve found a really safe place to share as much or as little as you feel like sharing, with supportive people who can relate and understand. I am sorry for the trauma that brought you here and I really get that feeling of disconnect that occurs in the aftermath of the stuff I dont like to talk about with family and friends because I too fear their judgement. You'll find people here that understand and welcome you nI matter what happened. BraveOne
