    No Title

    This has got to be the hundredth time I’ve started this blog. I just don’t know what to say. I want to write, but I don’t know what to say. It feels like nothing is happening while at the same time, everything is happening. I’m in distress. I’m crying a lot – and I mean a LOT. I’m angry. I’m hurt. But I don’t know how to put any of this on paper and get it out of my head. Everything is wrong. Everything feels so insignificant. I can’t even write because it doesn’t feel safe. Therapy doesn’t feel safe. Nothing feels right. I feel like I’m living in absolute chaos and no one can help m

      Session went pretty well. The only thing is that it doesn't look like I'm able to get the help I need until I'm ready to change and I'm not sure I'm ready yet. But I'm hoping my T isn't giving up on me yet.

      Safe hugs :hug: If ok?

      I'm sorry you can get the help you need, hopefully your t will continue to help.

  8. Hi, @Andrea2603 - Welcome back to AS! I hope you're feeling to be back at home here As mentioned above, Help Desk is a great way to get all of your stuff merged so you don't lose old posts! I'm sorry you're having such a hard time right now. I'm sure you know - healing has no timeline. The ups and downs are completely normal. You're safe to feel that here. If you need anything at all, I'm here! Welcome back We're happy you're here. All the best, Poppy

  10. It's a scary thing to reach out for help, but when you do, the load starts to get so much lighter. I'm hoping this is the case for you too.

  14. Hi, @Charlee - Welcome to After Silence! I'm sorry to hear that you, too, have reason to be here. It saddens me sometimes to know how many people this happens to. But, that being said, I am truly glad you found us and hope that this community brings you light and happiness! I also didn't link a lot of my mental health stuff to my abuse until recently so I know how that feels. I can assure you that your feelings are very real and very valid. I hope you're finding your way around okay! I'm here if you ever need anything Warm wishes, Poppy
  15. I told someone new about my trauma and I don't know if I can really trust them and I feel so anxious about telling them.

      Sitting with you, Poppy. It was really brave of you to tell them about your trauma. It is NOT easy at all to do. I hope that it will work out. Take gentle care of yourself. ❤️

      Thank you all for the comments. I’m still a little shaky, but hoping it works out.
