  7. Hello @Mlbrown welcome to After Silence! I am Wanna You are right, burying it and avoiding it won't help you. Every survivor needs to be allowed to actively heal and processing. That you have turned to a therapist is an important and good step, I am happy you decided to. I am also happy that you are here. Having a community always gives you some back up, with others who can relate and sit with you. This is a place where you are allowed to share in your own pace. Of course there is patience, and only you decide if and when to share certain things. We appreciate members both sharing and supporting within the amount they want and are able to. This is in first hand a place for you to find comfort, but giving someone else advice and support can be a wonderful addition. I am truly and deeply sorry for your trauma, pain and how this has affected your life. We believe you, we will be there for you, and you own your story. I hope you are aware that none of this is your fault. Have a look around here, browse a bit and when you feel ready, you are most invited to post Stay safe. If you would have any questions, would need to vent or chat, do not hesitate to reach out to us staff. - Wanna ☀️
  8. Hello @sophianoelle I am Wanna, welcome to After Silence. 🌻 What happened to you is not okay and you did not by any means deserve this. This can, sadly, happen to anyone. From what I read, it sounds like he is blackmailing you. This is illegal and you can get legal guidance anonymously. This community will be here for you, and you are being super brave for sharing this today. You are not supposed to be alone in this. You own your story, and you have nothing to be ashamed of. We are all here to share, heal and exchange support. Yes, we are anonymous and strangers at first, but this is a safe place. I believe you. If you would need support, someone to hear you out, or have any questions, us staff always has doors open. Stay safe, I am here for you! - Wanna ☀️
  9. Hello CJ! Welcome back! We appreciate members both supporting and sharing, this is great! I am so happy that you feel that you have come far. I have been here for a little less than 2 years myself. Take care and all best - Wanna ☀️

  12. @ToTheMaxima Hello Max! I am Wanna My warmest welcoming to you. It can take loads of time until realizing what has happened. Some survivors know straight away, others might need years. Finally knowing is painful, and processing can both feel difficult and complicated. Important is, that you are aware that none of this is your fault and that you are not alone. I agree, the reason we all are here is saddening to say the least, but the opportunity to support another and relate is precious. I think you describe what we do here wonderfully! You are in my thoughts too. I am happy to hear, that you actively work on to love yourself. You own your story, and I encourage you to keep using your words. I am truly and deeply sorry for your pain and trauma. What you describe of dissociation, the feeling of disconnection to your self and body and the situation feeling surreal, it all goes with I see other members post here on a frequent basis. It is sadly normal to feel that way after this kind of trauma, but you can heal Have a look around this website and whenever you feel ready, you are invited to share. Take care and all the best - Wanna ☀️
  13. Hello Chump! I am Wanna I am truly and deeply sorry for your trauma and pain. Professional help and a community can complete another in multiple ways in your support system.

I am for one happy too that After Silence exists, to assist survivors and create this invaluable network You can come here during good, bad and neutral days. You can post about anything. I know, finding your true self during healing is a complex process, but we are here to support another. You can PM me any time! All best and my warmest welcomes, - Wanna ☀️

  21. Hello @TheatreKidJayde I am Wanna, welcome to After Silence!

You own your story, and I encourage you to keep using your words. We have a forum on this site for teenagers and young adults if you'd like to check it out. Hope to see you around!

  22. Hello @Butterfly2166 , I am Wanna. I want to offer you my warmest welcoming to this platform You are being very brave for opening up. Having a community can be a great relief and resource during critical times. This is a place to vent and share within the limits of what you feel comfortable with. You can receive support here and discuss with other members. If you had a chance to browse around the site a bit, you might have noticed that we have plenty of forums here. This platform carries a wide diversity of survivors. I am truly sorry for your pain. You are not alone. Feeling like healing is unachievable is a place many survivors experience. Some experience it once, others several times, but it is important that you talk about it every time you go into that head space. Your words are a valuable tool, and you own your story. I am here to tell you, that by opening up today, you have made an important step. Not letting fear taking control is strong and crucial. After Silence is here for the bad days, good days and anything in between. We want to have your back, and if you would have questions, need to chat/vent or anything at all, us staff has doors open! Good luck and once again, welcome All best - Wanna ☀️

    Hi

    Hello Gerty! My warmest welcomes I am truly sorry about your trauma. This is a place to get support and to get acquainted with other survivors and secondary survivors. We will be here for you and I am happy you decided to join. It is never too late to start processing and healing. Feeling confused about yourself, maybe even having an identity crisis, is not unusual among survivors. I hope that you know that you are not alone in this. Good work on starting getting past denying, I encourage you to keep using your words! All best and take care - Wanna ☀️
  24. I relate to this is several ways and recognize others struggles in your content as well. You are not stepping into a void, this is all normal. You are just being human. I agree that anxiety can be within our control, just remember that if it happens, you shouldn't feel guilty about it. Just keep taking good care of yourself. I did over eat during my worst period, and barely made it out of bed. I did attend school, but when I came home I went straight to bed to binge series. I fled I guess. In the series I watched, nobody got assaulted, everyone was well groomed and joyful. I just wanted to escape my own head. I did comfort eat as a child and sort of fell back into that habit for a while there. I also ate a lot of candy and snacks, probably to make myself feel better if just temporarily. As I started to get help, I made a list of what I should do daily. Mine were Doing my homework/study Exercise Reading my Bible I also made a rule that I was allowed to skip one of these if I had a bad day, but only one. So, if I didn't work out (that one almost never fell away, I was so into exercising) I would at least get my home work done and so on. Feeling an uncontrollable need to masturbate is something I have read in several member's posts here. Please do not be ashamed, it is so normal and you can talk about it here. I am sure many members can give you advice on that. I encourage you to keep using your words here. I personally believe that a support system of professionals, a community and close ones makes a healthy circle where each part complete another. Sitting with you if okay? - Wanna ☀️
  25. Hello Zoe--Anastasia and welcome to After Silence! I am Wanna You shouldn't worry about "burdening people", no matter if they are survivors or not. There is support to get for secondary survivors too, we actually have that right here on this platform. I however encourage you to widen your support system and finding a community. We have a wide diversity of survivors here and we invite you to share within what you feel comfortable with. You own your story and we believe it. I am deeply sorry for your trauma, I wish you best of luck on your healing journey. I will check out your blog! I am so happy you decided to join in All best and stay safe, - Wanna ☀️
