  2. Hi, @cristina - Welcome to After Silence!! I'm so proud of you for working up the courage to make your first post - I know that isn't easy. I can confirm for sure that there are people here that will be able to relate to what you're going through. I am not in college, but I am college aged. I just dropped out right after my freshman year and I haven't gone back. So as far as school goes, I can't relate too much to that. On your age though, I can relate to that! I hope you enjoy posting and getting to know everyone here! I know you've been here for a while, but if you have any questions or need anything, I'm just a quick PM away Wishing you the best, Poppy
  3. Hi, @Maya20 - Welcome to After Silence!! I'm so sorry for all that you're going through right now. I am so proud of you for reaching out, though! That is such a difficult thing to do so good job for taking those steps. I agree that it's such a difficult thing to deal with because there aren't always people you can talk to. Just know that you can always talk here about anything you need to and we will all be here to listen and support you. I want to reiterate what @samantha2009 said - you ARE a survivor! If you need anything at all, please feel free to send me a message any time. I'm here whenever you need me! Hugs, Poppy
  4. Hi, @littleheartsmile - Welcome to After Silence! I'm sorry you're having such a hard time right now. Just recently, my T also mentioned that I had PTSD and it kind of took me by surprise because it wasn't something I had thought about before. Just know that you aren't alone here. We all understand how hard it is to live with trauma in your life! I hope that being here will help you to feel less alone and you will get the support you deserve. If you need anything at all, please feel free to shoot me a message! I'm always around and I'm here for you Sending happy thoughts, Poppy
  5. Hi, @Survive4 - Welcome to After Silence! I'm sorry for the trauma you endured that brought you here. Healing is difficult and I know how hard it is when you feel like you've made so much progress, just to find yourself taking steps backwards. Just know that you are not alone here and we all want to help you in your healing journey. I know your story will help others here! I'm glad your T recommended finding groups and you found yourself here If you need anything at all, just let me know! Wishing you all the best, Poppy
  6. Hi, @Regenboog - Welcome to After Silence! I know how you feel about joining the site. It's nice to meet other survivors and not feel alone, but you also wish that other people didn't have to go through what you went through so you don't want to say it makes you happy.. I totally get what you mean! I feel the same way Hopefully you'll find some good support here and help with your PTSD. I also play piano and sing so that's really cool! I'm also 22 so we are close in age as well I hope you're enjoying the site so far! If you need anything or have questions, feel free to let me know! I'm around all the time! Wishing you the best, Poppy
  7. Hi, @khake - Welcome to After Silence! I'm sorry about the things you're uncovering in EMDR. I also do EMDR and I know how hard it is and how overwhelming it can be. I hope that you're able to work through these things with your T and gain additional support here to help you through this difficult time. What happened to you was not okay and was not your fault. Continue to look around the site and post when you feel ready. We are all here to support you If you need anything, let me know! Warm welcome, Poppy

    Hi

    Hi, @MeganMe - Welcome to After Silence!! I'm sorry you're struggling, but I, too, am hoping this site will help you with that. This site is support supportive and full of information and personal experiences that will hopefully help you in your journey of healing.

  11. Hi, @sunnyskies55 - Welcome to After Silence! I'm sorry about the trauma you endured 11 years ago and also that you had to see the perpetrator recently. I'm hoping you will find some good support and healing here If you need anything at all, please feel free to reach out to me! Wishing you the best, Poppy
  12. Hi, @MissTattoo - Welcome to After Silence!! I'm so sorry to hear about the circumstance that brought you here. I can't imagine how nervous and afraid you must be! If he does recognize the story, he has no right to slander you because you can always call him out for what he did. At the same time, that doesn't mean he WON'T say something either. If he DOES call you out though, he would have to admit that he recognized the story and confess that he did hurt you. So really, all of this would fall back on him not matter what he does. I hope he doesn't see it and try to retaliate. Just know that you have the right to share your story and HE will be the one that ends up hurt if he calls you out about it. I know this wasn't the best advice, but I'm hoping it helped in some way or another. If you need anything, feel free to send me a message! I can try to help talks things out with you if you need it I hope you're feeling encouraged! Wishing you all the best, Poppy
