  1. Hello I've technically been a member of AS for about 18 months, but I only hung around for a couple of weeks when I joined in summer 2017, because I wasn't really in the right place for dealing with/talking about things. I'm hoping to stick around longer this time, because I've finally got a really good therapist and I feel like I'm in a good position to deal with the effects of being abused.
