  1. Welcome to After Silence 4sa! I am Wanna I've previously sent you a welcoming PM to be found in your inbox, feel free to reach out any time. I understand that being vulnerable is difficult, especially at such a personal level. You decide what to share here and when, take your time. Please know that we believe you and that whatever happened doesn't define you in the least. As you may have noticed, we discuss a little bit of everything here, from trauma related topics and coping methods to just general life. We do have fun here, especially in the Humor and Silliness forum, or share
  2. Saying hello Robyn, don't think we've met
  3. Hello Xander and welcome to our community! I am Wanna It is perfectly normal to be nervous in these types of situations, just take your time. Here at After Silence, we believe each other and exchange support, as well chit chat about most things in life. If you've had the chance to browse our forum's index, you might have noticed that we have a wide spam of forums for various subjects. I hope you'll find something that matches your needs. I am happy you've come to the point of actively healing, and wish you the best of luck with that. Recovering from such a severe trauma can be an e
  4. I got the highest grade on my assignment, which is the grade I got on the class too! Yay, I needed this.

      Great work! 

  5. Hello Sister.L and welcome to our community! I am Wanna I am so happy you're investing in yourself with therapy and that you've decided to join in here. Yes, healing can indeed be an uneven experience. You think you have it figured out, and then something new happens. I do however believe that you can reach a point of the good days outnumbering the bad ones. After Silence was made by survivors for survivors, to give everyone a chance to find support, relate and in other ways use to platform to feel less alone. You share at your own pace, no expectations. Aside from trauma related s
  6. We have Father's Day in Sweden today. 

    I do not really celebrate Father's or Mother's Day, but I'd like to express my gratitude to have a stepdad who is everything my birth father never was. 

    1. MeBeMary


      I say a stepdad can be a real dad, even without sharing the bloodline. You have a real dad, and I am so happy he stepped up to be that father figure. I am happy you have such a role model in your life.

      You may not "celebrate" a Father's Day...but it does seem like someone that special to you can be celebrated every day!

      Happy for you, Wanna! :throb: 

    2. WannaMoveOn


      @MeBeMary Yup he is dad. 

  7. Hello Layla, I am Wanna Welcome to our community! First off, whatever happened was NOT your fault. It is important that you tell yourself that if you'd ever have doubts. You are brave for accepting what happened so fast and seeking support. We've got you. This is a safe place by survivors, for survivors. There is no demand or expectations on your activity here. Come whenever you want to, participate at your own pace. You can discuss coping, exchange support and share what you'd feel comfortable to. We also talk about plain life here and topics that are not necessarily trauma relat
  8. Okay, so if you click under "Forums" under "Browse" on the left side on top of the screen, you'll find the index. You can enter the forums by clicking on it's title. On top of the forum, you'll find a brief caption about what it is dedicated for and special rules for the forum. The Aftermath and Gathering Place are more general forums, and we have a forum called Simply Life that is dedicated towards topics that aren't necessarily trauma related. I'd say those forums are good to start out with. I have linked The Help Desk in my PM to you, where you can go for technical questions.
  9. Hello Kekoa and welcome to After Silence, I am Wanna First off, I am sincerely sorry for what this horrible person did to you. Letting somebody into your home does not equal with consent to any sexual interactions. Here at After Silence, we believe our survivors and have each other's backs. You decide what you'd like to share and when. This is a safe place for survivors to connect, offer each other support and to just hang out. You can use this site to vent and discuss your trauma, but we also talk about hobbies, fun things, our passions and just life in general. If you've had a cha
  10. Woke up with anxiety. I have had some breakfast, that helped. 

  11. Hello Helen! We've met in the other forums, but I just wanted to say how happy I am that you've chosen healing. That is the greatest gift you could offer yourself. Healing tends to be a rocky road, but it can be done, and we are all here to support each other. We believe you, and you have nothing to be ashamed about. If you've checked out our forum's index, you may have noticed that we talk about much here. Just take your time and let me or any staff member know if you'd need extra assistance. It is very noble of you to offer support. - W ☀️
  12. I passed my exam. 

    I am too emotional to read my feed back right away, I will do that later. 

    It's not that I am not pleased with my effort, I wrote a pretty dang good assignment. I am just quite emotional these days. My hormones are all over the place, I haven't had my period in months, so my PMS is kind of just showing up whenever it pleases. Today, I woke up with anxiety, for no reason, and me passing makes me even more soft. 

    1. Finchy


      First off, congrats on passing your exam! ❤️ That is wonderful news.

      I'm sorry, though, about the anxiety and emotions going wild. :( Have you seen a doc about missing your periods? Is that usual for you? I hope you'll feel better. ❤️ 

    2. WannaMoveOn


      @Finchy It's okay. I was really sick mental wise 18 months ago, and even if I am doing SO much better, a few mood swings here and there are probably part of the kit. 

      They say you can wait up until a year before you see a doctor. I am actually okay with having no periods for now. My PMS is usually not that bad, and as I don't give squat about my fertility any longer, I have dropped it a bit. I have been irregular for most of my fertile life. 

      Thanks for hearing me out ☀️

      Sitting with you, Wanna. No problem. ❤️ 

  13. First off, congratulations on your pregnancy! You'll have a little spring baby, so cute! I think the least your parents can do is letting you pick the time and place. If you want your husband to be there, they have no say in that. Also, yes, you own your story. Your brother needs therapy severely, but he needs to actually make a change. It is not your parent's place to ultimately forgive him. They have no say in who you tell. I was thinking when I read this: That sounds like something you could say. Now that you're pregnant, are you sure you want to talk to them about it no
  14. You're welcome, good luck!
  15. Hello and welcome groovy! I am Wanna Passing denial is a milestone itself, it takes time and courage to allow yourself realizing your trauma. After Silence was created by survivors, for survivors. You pick your own pace here. Our community is a safe place to share, vent and connect with fellow survivors. We also have a lot of fun here too, sharing our creativity, interests and passions. If you'd had the chance to view our forum's index, you may have noticed that we have a wide span of topics here.
