  1. Hello Everyone

    Hi and welcome to AS! Great to have you here even though I am sorry for the trauma that brought you here. I also have a dog a golden retriever she helps me to feel safe at home. I was actually thinking about having a rocking chair that was handed down to me from my Grandma refurbished today while I was out on a long walk with my dog. Anyways as others have said this is a supportive place full of kind caring individuals that will cry with you laugh with you and support you along your healing journey. BraveOne

  4. Joining again

    Hi and Welcome Back @123456, sorry to be welcoming you back in such a time as now, but I am glad that you remembered how safe and supportive this site is. As others have stated I am also sure that this site has grown and changed some since you were here before. If you need any help please feel free to ask for it. I wanted to also say that I am proud of you for getting out of a DV relationship, I know how hard that is and it takes a lot. Good Job. I know things cant be easy right now but we are always here at AS even if its not in person. BraveOne
  5. Intro

    Welcome to AS @Batwing19, I am sorry for the trauma that brought you here to our forum. I have also just recently moved and I am still unpacking as well. I hadn't thought about how I am still unpacking emotionally as well, that is something I will have to ponder on for a while. AS is a great place, the people here are more like a family then what I have in he real world. It was important to me to learn that I wasn't alone after years of silence and I just wanted to let you know your not alone. Things may seem tough, but I can tell already your tougher then things. Remember its not in how many times we fall, its about how we rise back up BraveOne

    Hi @IBelieveYou, welcome to as though I am sorry for the trauma that brought you here. I like your name too, a lot of us don’t have people that believe them so that’s a strong name choice. You have found a great supportive place full of supportive people that will care for you and about you. Looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

  8. I'm new (at least as of yesterday)

    I get it. I actually did not say a word for 10 years about what had happened to me and one day I just kind of lost grip with reality and ended up in therapy and then here. i didnt have anyone i felt safe sharing it with, so I understand why people keep it quiet too. As long as I never verbally said it I thought it would go away and it did for me till it didnt anymore and it all came up and I thought I had lost my mind.

    Hi @Amsekhmet, Welcome to AS. I am so sorry for what you went through back in 96, and for all the years of dealing with the trauma feeling alone. I am glad you we told about AS and that you have found it useful so far. my assaults were old as well when I joined and I felt very alone and isolated by them. finding others to connect with was so important. i am so glad you have found our warm safe space to share. Wanted to point out that you are so brave to have shared you story and joined our sight, that is pretty impressive and I am glad that you can show your strength already. cant wait to see more from you around the forums.
