  1. It’s nice to meet you, Grim, I am called Cap on here - got to love the nicknames that we pick up in life - sometimes I feel my nickname fits me more than my given name! Thank you for taking the time to introduce yourself. I really think you will like it here! Anyway, I welcome you to After Silence. This community has truly helped me to heal from my (various types of) abuses and it is comforting to know I am not alone. The support is overwhelming, here - and the connections I have made are truly priceless. I hope you find that the same is true for you, too. My best wishes, -
  2. I know my posting and involvement has been less and less lately.  I’ve been in a bit of a funk, trying to acclimate to job and family (and pet) demands, new sleep schedules, and to top it off, am getting over being sick last week…getting back to 100% IS a thing!!  It all adds up!  I want you all to know though, that I DO still come here daily and think of all of my friends every day.  There is something comforting about being here, even if not much is said.  It is still comforting to see all of you, even if just in name.  Sending you all hugs!!  ❤️

      No worries Cappy, please just take care of yourself. I know you have a lot going on, and I also know you're working a lot with the site "behind the scenes".

      Take care of yourself, Cap! ❤️ I've been sick for the past month...so I understand being sick and wanting to get back to 100%! Plus you're working and dealing with family etc. It's totally ok! It's just nice hearing from you when we do. :)

  5. Welcome to AS, @corpsegirl333, this is a terrific community!! Wishing you the absolute best! - Capulet
  6. Welcome to AS, @queennanosparkle! Though I am sad you have reason to be here, I also have hope that being among those who truly understand will be the difference within your healing processes. Take gentle care! Best wishes, - Capulet
  7. Welcome to AS, @midnitemoon!!! So sorry for the circumstances that have led you to this community but am truly glad you are aboard the healing train! The folks here are truly wonderful! Best wishes, - Cap
  8. Hi Benjamin, welcome to After Silence! Wishing you all the best. I am here if you have any questions. Sincerely, - Cap
  9. Welcome to AS, @cryinginside - you are among many who understand what you are going through. Take your time exploring the site - I truly hope you find the support you seek! You can always ask your local hospital, crisis resource center etc for a therapist who specializes in sexual violence/trauma. Sometimes it's hard to find a good therapist just by looking up therapists in the area - you definitely want one whose focus is in the sexual abuse/sexual assault/trauma arena - that truly can be the difference. I would consider my preferences - (male/female therapist, etc), jot them down

    Hello!

    Welcome to AS, @JaneM! I'm so sorry for the circumstances that have led you to our community, but truly glad you found us. This is definitely a supportive space for survivors to connect with other survivors. I must say I never realized how much could be learned from others who can relate, and I'm hopeful that being here will demonstrate the same for you. This is a question many of us struggle with - I think the answer varies for us all. I think, though, it's important to keep in mind a few key self-questions. How is this person likely to react? Would they be supportive? Are they
  11. Sending everyone strength, love, peace, comfort, healing and lots of cookies and coffee.  Hoping you are all hanging in there and being kind to yourselves today.

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Hi

    Welcome to AS, @Rdy2try - it's okay to not know what to say right away - sometimes it takes a while to become comfortable. Take your time and look around - this is truly a wonderful community filled with many who understand. You're not alone! Take gentle care. I am hopeful that being here will bring you peace, comfort and healing. Best wishes, - Capulet

  14. Absolutely, @Six_times_seven!!! I was married to a man who didn’t support healing - at least, his version was, ‘forget it and move on.’ We all know that’s not possible. I’m very glad I moved on from him - I will never be able to forget my trauma but I feel better about healing in general - it is a slow but sure process - especially when done with adequate support. ❤️
  15. I am sure you will, hun!!! ❤️❤️❤️ We are a constantly evolving species. Every few years, I’d say. 😉 Ya know, the strange thing about change - we sometimes cringe at the thought. Many of us (including myself) don’t like changes - especially drastic ones. I was not a very happy person back then, was just trying to maintain the facade for the sake of the people around me - ex-hubby, the kids…I found AS about a year before the separation/divorce and things would get much worse before they improved. I’m glad I embraced these changes! 💕 - Cap
