  1. Hi @Izz, I'm so sorry for what you've gone through. I'm glad you've found this group. I hope that you'll find it really helpful.
  2. Welcome to AS. I'm sorry you needed to seek out a place like this, but it's a really supportive community and I'm glad you found it. Congrats on getting close to finishing your degree, also!
  3. I love the quote too — it's more of a goal than a reality for me right now, but I'm working on it. And I agree, it's a tough balance to find. I wish everyone knew the answers. This site is a great place to help with working through stuff, though.

    Welcome Galaxies. I'm sorry you had to look for a community like this, but I'm glad you found this one and I'm glad you're already feeling less alone.
  5. Welcome to AS, and I'm sorry for what brought you here. I joined for the same reason, because I felt like I needed a community that understood what I was going through beyond what my friends in real life might be able to handle. I've definitely found that here — I hope you do too.
  6. I completely understand what you're talking about with the obligation to be "healed." I'm struggling with the same thing. I joined this forum for the same reason you did, to talk to people who get it and have been through the same thing. I'm sorry about what happened to you, but you'll find lots of support here.
  7. Welcome to AS, Allison. I'm sorry you had to track down a group like this, but I'm glad you found it. I joined for the same reason — to talk to and listen to people who've been through the same thing as me. You'll find tons of support here.
  8. I'm so sorry about what happened with you, and I'm glad you found this site. I joined for the same reason — because I needed to talk with people who understood. You'll find tons of support here.
  9. Hi Abbie, welcome to AS and I'm so sorry for what happened to you. I joined because I felt alone too. I think you'll find lots of support in this group.
  10. Welcome! I'm pretty new to the site too, and I joined for the same reason — I don't really have anyone in my day-to-day life who completely understands what happened to me. I'm sorry about what happened to you too, and I hope you find the support you need with this community.

    Welcome to the site. I'm pretty new too and also felt uncomfortable about joining, but I've felt so, so supported here already. I'm sorry for what brought you here, and I hope this community is helpful to you.
  12. I'm in the same boat. Talking with people who've been through the same thing has been more helpful than I could have realized — everyone here gets how dark it can be. I'm glad you're finding that, too.
  13. Welcome, luvdogz (I love them too!). I'm sorry about what happened to you. I'm glad you found this community.
  14. Hi butterflydream, welcome to AS. I'm new here too. So much of what you said resonated with me — feeling bad about putting yourself in the situation, finding it difficult to be a victim after you were an ally, faking smiles. You said it all way better than I could. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who feels that way — and I hope that knowing that others feel this way too helps you. I hope you get lots of support here.
  15. Some days I really need that reminder that this didn't happen that long ago and I'm not necessarily going to be OK right now. Definitely getting some good support IRL, but I'm grateful for this group too. Good luck with your journey as well — I appreciate it.
