  2. Hello @tiffanylynn55 I really admire you helping this woman, being prepared to put up with the triggers and suppressed memories. I completely understand that you don't feel like yourself, and that the future might seem uncertain right now. Just know that whatever happens next, both regarding the investigation and your own coping, you can come and find support here. Our community has a great diversity of survivors, and you can post whatever you'd like to get off your chest. I am sorry for what happened to you when you were 19, and that you went 10 years with suppressing. I am happy t
  3. Hello @iluvac Welcome to After Silence! I am sorry for what brought you here, but happy you've found us. I'd second @MeBeMary, our members form a wonderful support system. I want to congratulate you on opening up to your family. Even if you are close, opening up might not always be that easy. Good thing you feel support though. Feeling numb is a normal reaction when you are overwhelmed, going through a lot etc. Give yourself time, and keep using your words when you feel comfortable to do so. I hope you will come to recognize this platform as a safe place. ☀️ - Wanna

About wondering if not looking at the person you are opening up to... everyone copes in their own way, just give yourself time Welcome to After Silence! 🌻 - Wanna

  7. And I believe in you! Welcome to this platform. I am sorry for your reason to be here, but happy you've joined in. After Silence offers a wide forum, where you can post anything related to the process of your experience and just plain life. From my personal experience we have no judging and no shaming. Some members are moderators and newbie supporters, offering that extra bit of help, always available. We have a thing called "safe hugs". It goes like this: Safe hug if ok? Take care and welcome.
  8. Hi @Lovelylady, you've come to a safe platform. I have been here since January 2019 and received wonderful support, but also been able to give other survivors a piece of advice.

We have moderators here, always available for you. You are brave to ask for help. Members often offer another safe hugs Here is one if ok. Take care and welcome!
  9. Welcome to this platform Wolfgang! I've been here since January 1st, and received much support, advice and empathy in this forum. I hope you'll experience the same. Don't worry about being "rather late", because it's never too late. We are here for you. PS. If you are coping with flashbacks, feel free to contact me, I share some experience in that particular area.
  10. 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?
  11. Hello and welcome! I have been here since January, and I have experienced good advice, dialogs, and support here. Feel free to write me any time. Here on AS, we offer another safe hugs Want one?
  12. First of all, welcome to AS! I am deeply sorry for what happened to you, and those comments about you not having a case because of the influence of alcohol is just rubbish. Assault is assault and you have the right to your body despite any excuses or circumstances. I was also afraid no one would take me seriously. My boyfriend caused my SA, and I wondered for months if it really was a case of rape. I also had some struggle being taken seriously, as the SA happened in a complex situation. But also, I have been blessed with a lot of support. I agree, sometimes it's easier to talk to a
  13. Yes, the reason why we all are here is sad, but we got each other's backs!
  14. Welcome to the site! Good thing you've decided to join us, here you'll find support for any topic you could think about related to SA, relationships, feeling better, process trauma and much more! I found AS by chance as well, just a few months ago, when I was super low. This site provides some really useful and mind changing content. I wish you a nice experience. Here on AS we give away safe hugs. It's a thing. Want one?

  19. Hi, @AKBI am grateful for the opportunity to co-work on healing with others on this site.
  20. @MeBeMary, thanks for bringing up pressure and manipulation as abuse. It's exactly those kinds of bullying from my previous partner I'm trying to heal from. I appreciate your support.
  21. I'm 18 and recovering from sexual assault. Briefly, my story is that my first boyfriend ever took my virginity and then didn't took no for an answer. As I tried to tell him I wanted to get off sex, he gave me an ultimatum to leave or stay and give him what he wanted. I first didn't consider it as sexual assault, but according to the law in my country threats for getting sex and disrespect to reject is a kind of rape. I'm confused and struggling with moving on. I'm having nightmares about my ex and am experiencing extreme mood swings. All support and advice are welcome, and I would like to get
  22. Hi! I'm 18 and new as well. Feel free to send me a message any time or reply to any of my topics. Maybe we can exchange some experience and give each other tips to handle the struggle. Take Care
