    Dear @Oak, Welcome to After Silence. I'm sorry both for what happened to you and that people are trying to push you to sweep it under the rug. I think one of our most central values here at AS is expressed perfectly in our name - "After Silence." We are about listening, supporting, and ending silence, so we are here to listen to anything you have to share about your story. We encourage it. Feel free to read through our forums, look around, and above all SHARE any time you want. Gold Raindrops

I can confirm that there are many of us here who love music (myself included). We have several threads dedicated to music/enrichment, like the amusement alcove. Feel free to look around and post whenever you feel comfortable. Gold Raindrops
  6. Hey everyone

    Dear @da2606, Welcome to After Silence. I'm sorry for the suffering that brought you here, but you're right to feel excited about finding us. We are a kind and supportive community full of people who are there to listen and help each other heal. It's brave of you to take so many important steps - like therapy, writing and talking about it. You mentioned reading other people's stories. If you are interested in mine, you are welcome to read it in the Share Your Story forum. It is triggering, though, so only if it's something you'd like to see. Wishing you comfort and healing, Gold Raindrops

  15. Hello everyone

    Dear @Aliss, Welcome to After Silence. I'm sorry for the suffering that has brought you here, but you have found a kind and supportive community full of people ready to support you. I would like to tell you that no amount/degree of abuse is ok, no matter what. It is a myth that causes people to minimize their suffering and stop themselves from reaching out for help. Sexual abuse of any kind is wrong and destructive - period. Wishing you comfort and healing, Gold Raindrops

  18. Where can I talk about my story?

    Dear @Mintchip76, I noticed your message above (your first?). Let me also send my messages of welcome to you. I think what you said is true. On the path to healing, there are times when we are moving forward and times when we feel stuck. I think many of this website can relate. This is a kind and supportive community - there will be many people here to offer support and friendship and their stories when you do feel stuck. That's how it's been for me, anyway. Blessings, Gold Raindrops

  22. Sitting on the fence

    Dear @Nbed80, I wanted to let you know you absolutely do not need to worry about people judging you here. We are a kind and supportive community and above all, every one of us knows the shame that comes with S.A. For myself, I've dealt with guilt, self-doubt, shame and humiliation for years. I've agonized over and over about everything I didn't do surrounding my assault. In fact, that's what kept me pretty much silent about what happened to me. When I came here I started to realize that there were many people feeling the same things I was. When I see other people revealing the details of what happened to them, I feel admiration, not judgment, because I know what those feelings are like and because I know how hard it is for me to talk about the details of what happened. So I can assure you, you don't need to worry about that here. Wishing you comfort and healing, Gold Raindrops
  23. Hi, I'm new here

    Welcome, @Leda, I'm so sorry for what happened to you. It was brave of you to press charges and take your case to court. There are many people here who can relate to how hard that is. Wishing you many new friendships, comfort and healing. Gold Raindrops

  25. Just starting...

    Dear @Nbed80, I saw your post embedded within this thread - let me take a moment to welcome you to After Silence, also. I'm sorry for the suffering that brought you here, but I can assure you, we are a safe, non-judgmental and kind community. I was also "anxious as crap" when I mad my first post, but I promise, you don't need to be. Take your time to look around, read threads/forum, and post only if you feel ready and comfortable. I wish you comfort and healing. Gold Raindrops
