  1. Hello there, @Two of Us and a very warm welcome to you both to After Silence.  I'm so sorry to learn that both you and your daughter have experienced trauma.  I think it's truly fortunate that you and your daughter have each other to hold each other's hands through this healing path - there's truly nothing better than having someone at your side, who understands.  

    I'm very glad you've found us, though.  This is truly a wonderful community filled with very kind, supportive souls and we're happy to have you.  Neither of you are alone.  I thank you in advance for the support you will provide as well - I absolutely agree that the sharing of your thoughts and experiences and feedback will be of great benefit to others who may be in the same boat!! 

    Maybe someday in the future, your daughter will become comfortable with having her own account.  When that day arrives, please let me know and I am happy to help her register. :)

    Again, AS welcomes you.  You'll be hearing from a member of our Newbie Support Team very soon.  Until then, please take your time to look around and if you have any questions or need help with anything, I'm just a shout away. :)

    All the best,

    Capulet


  2. Hello, @brokenchild and welcome (back) to After Silence. :)  I am sorry you're struggling with PTSD and and that you're needing the extra support right now, but am glad you've come back to a community where you know it will be given freely and without hesitation.  

    If there's anything you need, please feel free to give me a shout.  In the meantime, do take your time looking around and re-familiarizing yourself with the site.  We might have redecorated a little bit, but we're still the same awesome safe place we've always been.

    Have a great day!

  3. Welcome to After Silence, @Soccergirl81 - 

    Katherine, I'm sorry to learn you are a long-time survivor of trauma and that you are having trouble sleeping.  You have found a very safe community and there is never going to be a shortage of support from others.  You're not alone!  

    Please don't worry about sharing too much at once - that is not encouraged nor pushed, here. :)  We would rather you take your time and become familiar with the way the site works and with other members, first.  We look forward to getting to know you, whenever you are comfortable!

    A Newbie Support Team member will be sending you an official welcome message, shortly.  Until then, please know that if you need any help or have any questions about the site, I am just a shout away.

    Again, welcome. :)  We are happy to have you.

    Best wishes,
    Capulet


  4. Hi @feralcat - Welcome to After Silence.  I am so sorry to learn you have trauma in your background, but am hoping that you will take comfort in knowing that you have found a truly supportive community in AS.  It is truly a freeing feeling to release some of what you have been holding onto for so long - and although I do not know you very well, yet, I'm proud of you for taking this truly gigantic step toward healing!

    You should be contacted by a member of our Newbie Support Team shortly.  Until then, if you need any assistance, I'm just a shout away. :)

    Again, welcome.  Happy to have you among us and looking forward to getting to know you.

    Best wishes,
    Capulet


  5. @moongoddess - I'm well - thank you so much for asking!  :hug:Sending safe hugs, if you want them!

    Maybe!!! :)  I'm a longtime member. I did take a hiatus for a while before coming back.  I don't think there is any limit to the support you can gain from being here, so I'm glad you came back when you felt you needed to.  There is nothing wrong with needing the extra connection - especially when you know you can count on there being someone on the other end who is in the same boat.  You are always welcome.

    Very glad you are away from your abuser.  The distance does make all the difference in the world!  It's good to know you are safe now and that you're not contending with any physical threats!

    Hoping your weekend is going well.  If you need anything, I'm just a shout away. :)

  6. Welcome, @moongoddess - glad to hear that you're still continuing down the path to healing - that's always hard to do, but you're doing it - that's what matters!!! :)  I'd love to hear how things are different for you now as I am also looking at things from a different perspective these days as opposed to two decades ago.  

    Take good care, and welcome back.  As Mary has said, you'll run into many new faces, but we're still the same supportive community! :)

    Best wishes,
    Capulet


  7. Hi @VLX600 - Welcome to After Silence!!!!

    Congratulations on your first post. :)  And congratulations on starting therapy - that is a very big, brave step to take!

    Yes, you will find lots of support here.  After Silence is a truly wonderful community and the members are very kind and caring.  We are a safe, loving space and we sincerely welcome you.

    You will receive a message shortly from one of our Newbie Support Team members who will best be able to assist with ANY questions or concerns with navigating the site.  Or, of course - I am just a holler away.

  8. Hi @Ciotog - Welcome to After Silence.

    One of the best things about this site is - you don't have to delve into anything if you're not emotionally or mentally ready to.  You can take all the time you need to browse our side.  I'm sorry to learn of the circumstances that have led you here, but hope that you will realize quickly that you are not alone and are among caring, compassionate souls.

    A member of our Newbie Support Team will be in contact very soon.  Until then, if you have any questions or concerns, you can always reach out and give me a shout.

    Again, welcome - glad to 'meet' you and looking forward to getting to know you further whenever you're ready.

    Best wishes,
    Capulet


  9. Hello @Here2Heal - welcome to After Silence!!!  

    We are glad to have you among us, too.  I'm very sorry to hear of the circumstances leading you to our community - and also what you're going through right now.   I am, however, hopeful that being here will help you to feel a little bit less alone as you deal with the rest of it...self-care is so, very, incredibly important and we all forget to do it from time to time.  Perfectly normal.  

    You will be hearing from a member of our Newbie Support Team shortly, but until then, if you have any questions or need help with anything, I am just a PM away.  

    Wishing you all the best as you begin your next healing stages.

  10. Welcome, @Willow1980 - wishing you all the best in your healing process!  I'm sorry you have reason to be here but am hopeful that you feel supported here.

    As others have said, our chat room is under construction. :)  I do hope, though, that we'll have it up and running in the very near future. Until then, there's an abundance of different topics to gain support on in our other forums, so please do take your time to look around. 

    Take care. :) 

    Best wishes,
    Capulet

    Wishing you peace, comfort and healing - I'm glad you are here among us - this truly is a great community.

    Best wishes to you,
    Capulet

  13. HI, @Chise - welcome to AS, from one cat lover to another.  I have five in my feline crew - the eldest is soon 16, the youngest is almost 4 months old.  They have a way of providing such comfort, I can't see myself NOT having a cat! :)

    I'm glad you're taking your time to look around and explore the site.  I am sorry that you have reason to be among us, but we're truly a loving, accepting, supportive bunch and look forward to hearing more about you and getting to know you further when you're ready. :)  You're never under any obligation to share more than you're prepared to - so continue to browse at your own pace.  We're not going anywhere. 

    Again - welcome.

    Best wishes,
    Capulet

  16. Hi @Len/Jack - Welcome to After Silence.  Looking forward to getting to know you through posts or through blogs, whichever you're more comfortable with at the time - it's one of the things I love the most about AS - the ability to take it all at your own pace.

    Anyway - welcome - take all the time you need to familiarize yourself with the site.

    Best wishes,

  17. Welcome to AS, @Redwood519 - so sorry that unfortunate circumstances have led you here, but please take comfort in knowing you have found a truly safe place within our community.  It is my sincerest hope that you will see that you are not walking this path alone - so many others can relate and understand what you're going through.

    Please take all the time you need to familiarize yourself with the site - we are here for you whenever you're ready to share a little bit more about yourself - but there's NEVER any pressure to do so.  Take it all at your own speed. :)

    Wishing you well!

    Best wishes,
    Capulet


  21. Welcome to you, @Lar7391 - hoping you find peace and healing here.  Congratulations on taking that HUGE step in deciding to start dealing with things you've had suppressed for a very long time. That's very admirable. :)
