    Welcome, Jaclyn! You have found a genuinely good group of people to help you within your journey. It seems that there really is so much to think about and things can get overwhelming at times. Just know that you may not be all alone in what you are feeling and thinking.

    Welcome, Nichole! You really have found a very calming and comforting place. Some of this really can be trial and error at times. What totally works for one may not do anything at all for another. My hope is that you take the time exploring everything the site has to offer and find some sincere solace within your own journey.
  3. Hello

    Hi, Azika. There really is no 'right' way with any of this. My hope is that you will find some comfort here as well.
  4. Hello, Everyone!

    Welcome to a very friendly and incredibly supportive community, Fairlis. It is so hard when going through traumas at such an early age. I'm a fellow survivor of this as well. There always needs to be a start all the same as we try to find some comfort and healing. Please take your time to explore all the site has to offer.
  5. Hello

    Jodi, experiencing extreme trauma early in life cannot help but affect us later on. It can make one feel not worthy of anything at all. Yet, there is still so much out there to embrace. Having a caring community like this can help perhaps make you feel just a little less alone.
  6. Hi

    Welcome, Liv Christine! It sounds like you have a supportive therapist. Talking about things can be a positive step along the way. Especially when those listening happen to care and also may relate.
  7. Hello

    Welcome, Em! I know that this can all seem overwhelming at times. There still always needs to be a start and you have truly found a wonderful source for help.
  8. Hello everyone!

    Cat Mom. this is a site where so many will get you even if only in general. There is so very much to process that finding where to jump in can make one quite anxious. The hardest part though is taking that initial step. Which you seem to have now done.
  9. Hello

    Welcome, Brown Deer! Opening up can be quite the challenge when we have been closed off for so long. It can be all about trial and error at times. It's maybe all about finding those sincere souls out there who make us feel even just a little less alone. You will find many of those around these parts.
  10. Hi

    Kristen Nicole, it sucks that some of the worst comes months and years after the actual abuse. Please know you are not alone in this. Some on here may be able to get it even if only in general. Trust is not something to be freely exchanged. It takes time to build with someone else. Even more so when one has experienced it being ripped away. No need to rush anything at all. Though there is always immediate help and support available here.
  11. Hi All, I’m new here

    Welcome, D She! There always needs to be a start. A sincere and warm place like this can truly be that right beginning.
  12. New here

    Hi, Kerri J! You will find many here who do get how you're feeling even if only in general. That will hopefully provide you some comfort at least. Not to mention more calm as well while you start your journey toward hopeful healing.
  13. I’m new here

    Welcome, Victoria K! All of this can be such a challenge and we are glad to have you here with us. You need not struggle alone all the time. This is a place to find both complete comfort and sincere support. Take your time to explore all that the boards have to offer.
  14. Another newbie

    Hi, Curious_george! Sometimes, we say the most with very little. You will definitely find some of that support you're seeking here. There are many sincere souls around these parts who will try helping you feel at least a little less alone.
  15. Hi - I'm new to After Silence

    Hi, Belle in Australia! It can truly feel like we are isolated and lost at times. No one will fully get all we feel and think. There can be sincere strength though in general unity. I hope you find some comfort within this safe space going forward.
