    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 ☀️
  2. 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 ☀️

  13. Hello @Jeanie234 and welcome to After Silence, I am Wanna. 🌻 I am deeply sorry for your trauma. You are most welcomed to join in here to have After Silence supporting you through this. I have no experience with the pills, but I understand that taking them is a triggering experience on top of everything else you have to put up with right now. It is good that you start to reach out early, you are brave for doing that. Self blame is normal among survivors, as the situations often are complex leaving it easier to put the guilt on yourself. Having someone close letting you down like that does not make it easier, I am sorry someone you considered close would hurt you so bad. Please know that none of this is your fault and that you have nothing to be ashamed of. This community offers you to share within what you feel comfortable with, and we discuss plenty of topics here. Nothing is too small or too big to be posted here. I hope you will find yourself a safe place here. If you would have any questions, need advice or to vent/chat, staff always has doors open. Hope to see your around and take care of yourself - Wanna ☀️
