Hello Everyone :) in Public: Welcome! Posted August 5 15 hours ago, aemcee said: Hello everyone. I'm new here. I've been really struggling recently with abuse that occurred nearly 20 years ago. Without going into too much details, I have had quite a few people tell me that what occurred didn't constitute as abuse for a variety of reasons. The only person who knows most of the details (other than my last T) is another survivor and she's never belittled what happened. Since I have been struggling again I decided to see if I could find support online from other survivors and that's what brought me here. Thank you for having me. Welcome! I've been here since January 1st and found this site providing much support. I hope you'll feel the same. Here on After Silence, we give away safe hugs, if ok?
