  1. Hello @aemcee and welcome to After Silence.  Although I'm sorry to hear of the circumstances that have led you to us, I'm still glad you're here.  This site is filled with some of the best people I've had the pleasure to get to know and I am hopeful that being here will bring you peace.  It is so comforting to know and realize that you are not alone in your struggles, even struggles that stem from something that happened two decades ago.  The ache is a very real one, and being surrounded by others who truly understand has always been beneficial for me.  I hope the same for you. :)

    I am always around if you ever need someone to listen.  Again, welcome to our community.  

    My best wishes to you,
    Capulet


  2. Hello, @Kazb and welcome to After Silence!!!  

    I can so relate to having things in your background that you've never resolved or done work on.  I'm currently working on some things in therapy, myself.  I'm not at the point where I've lost everything, but not having resolved things YEARS ago is certainly one thing that impacts my day-to-day life.  

    The lotus bloom quote rings true for me, too. :)  I'd like to someday have a lotus tattooed on my calf, perhaps the quote, too!  I believe every word.  

    Anyhow, welcome.  I hope that being here brings you peace and comfort - healing is possible! :)  You're not alone!

    My best wishes to you,
    Capulet

     


  3. Welcome @rileyk86!!!!  

    You are very much welcome here - we do have a males-only forum, if you might be interested in interacting with other male survivors.  You are definitely not alone!  If you would like access to that forum, you're very welcome to send a PM to @ActivistAlly and he would be more than happy to supply you the password.

    In the meantime, please feel free to look around and to become familiar with our other forums! :)  

    Take very good care, and again - welcome to After Silence! 

    Best wishes,
    Capulet


  4. Hi there, @neverland!!!

    Welcome to After Silence!!!  I'm sorry that you have experienced trauma both as an adult and as a child.  This is a truly supportive community and the folks here are absolutely amazing when it comes to always being willing to lend an ear.  I'm hopeful that you will not regret having made your first post and introducing yourself.  This is no small step - it's huge! :)  Be proud of yourself.

    Wishing you lots of luck in your healing journey!  And again - welcome.

    Best wishes,

  5. Hello @arzngrl529 - welcome back to AS!  I'm sorry you are having a rough time lately, but I am hoping that you find the same comfort from being here as you did once before.  

    Our Chat Room SHOULD be up and running very soon.  We've been working on putting some things into place and I'm hoping we will have some update to that, soon.  In the meantime, please feel free to re-familiarize yourself with the site.  I hope that being here brings you peace and healing.

    Sending you lots of safe, supportive hugs, if you would like them. :)  Take gentle care of yourself!

    Best wishes,
    Capulet


  6. Welcome to After Silence, @Blueberrymuffin!!!  I'm sorry for what has led you here, but you've found a wonderful, safe place.

  7. Hello @LRPINE and welcome to After Silence!!!  

    I'm so glad you are liking what you see of us, so far. :)  I remember being amazed by the outpouring of support and kindness when I first joined (SEVERAL years ago!) and am glad to see that some things haven't changed. :)  I'm also very glad you decided to wait out the registration and to introduce yourself to us.  We all have those moments where we need someone else to listen, to understand, to validate what we feel, and this community has always done that for me.  

    Again, welcome.  I wish you all the best in your healing processes and look forward to getting to know you better as time goes on. :)

    Best wishes,
    Capulet


  8. @Jsmoley - welcome to After Silence.  

    We do not have any rules here on what you need to write or share - all that is completely up to you.  Please take your time and look around and feel free to jump in whenever you are comfortable and/or ready.  After Silence is a judgement-free zone and we are all here to support one another.  Although I am sorry to hear you've need to be here, I'm hoping that your presence among us will bring you comfort and peace. :)

    My best wishes,
    Capulet


  9. Welcome, @Aliss from one extreme lover of cats to another!  Your photo made me smile.  I have five of these lovely feline companions at home and they certainly keep me on my toes.

    I agree with Mary completely - trauma is trauma - there's no scale of severity and no one person's experience is worse than, more important than or less than another's.  We all understand trauma and how difficult it is to talk about it.  You're definitely not alone, here.  This is a terrific community filled with many people who care and are willing to support anytime you need. :)  Take your time to look around, and jump in whenever you're ready, you'll only be met with kindness here at After Silence.  Welcome.

    Best wishes,

  10. Hi, Alex!  Thanks for reaching out.

    Unfortunately, at the moment, we do not have that option to select from - but I will make sure our administrator sees this, and perhaps it can somehow be made possible in the future so that we can better accommodate our members who do not particularly identify as one specific gender. 

    @Rose

    Wishing you all the best, if there's anything I can help with, please feel free to let us know via Help Desk. :)

    All the best,

    I am so glad you are liking what you have seen of our community so far.  We truly are a safe place, and I'm genuinely pleased you are able to feel hopeful!

    Sending you all of my support and safe hugs.

  12. Hello @Wanda5 - welcome to After Silence!  It certainly is a loving tribe to be a part of. :)  I love that word - it does take a village, and 'tribe' is fitting.  Although I'm sorry to hear of the circumstances under which you've arrived here, I'm hopeful that you will discover that there is genuine strength in numbers.  You're not alone here.

    Sending you my best wishes as you proceed in your healing journey,
    Capulet


  13. Hi @CosmicDaze333 - Welcome to After Silence!!!!  

    Proud of you for taking the first step to sign up and introduce yourself. :)  That's never an easy thing to do.  But it is a leap toward that growth and healing you seek.  This is a great place full of great people who are never without a kind word.  It's not always positive here, but it IS a safe place to express those things that make it hard for us to see that light at the end of the tunnel.  You're not alone here; many are in the same boat and are all striving toward our happy place. 

    Sending you all of my best wishes as you begin this journey!

  15.

  16. Hi @abnormalone2002 - Welcome (back) to AS!  You'll soon see that there are many new 'faces' as well as some old, familiar ones and that we've changed a little bit in recent years - but we're still the same kind, supportive, and loving community you likely remember. :) Our chat room isn't working at the moment but we're hoping that it will be up and running soon.  In the meantime, please do take your time to look around and re-familiarize yourself with our forums.  

    Thanks for telling us a bit about yourself.  Those special-needs children are truly fortunate to have people like you, who are willing to go that extra yard and who are truly looking after them and trying to help them to succeed!  Good for you.  I wish you happiness and success with your career goals!

    Again, welcome back!  Lean on us for support anytime you like.

    Best wishes,
    Capulet

  18. Hi, @rokcsjl - welcome to After Silence!

    I am so saddened to hear of the trauma you've experienced.  I am however, hopeful that being here will provide clarity on whatever it is that you are unclear or fuzzy on, as well as comfort and healing.  You are in a very safe place and we're happy to 'meet' you!!!  

    All the best,
    Capulet
