  1. @Maksim Hello and welcome to After Silence! I am Wanna You did the right thing by coming here. As I understand your example of realizing something was off years later, I want to stress that you were a minor. Minors cannot give consent. Even if a minor is convinced they're approving, they just can't. What I want to say, is that adults have a completely other responsibility when it comes to adult-minor rather than adult-adult. Children might not understand what's happening either. Perpetrators tend to manipulate a situation too, so it will appear as something different. Even if your

  5. So apparently there was a man sneaking around my campus yesterday. He has been peeping in windows and following two different girls, asking them private questions and offering rides. One of the female students contacted the police.  This was at the bright day in the afternoon. What is wrong with people? I am happy I'm going away for a few days.

      @mini.finch So this has allegedly been going on since 2016. If he ever peeps through my windows, I'll just take a picture, close the curtains and call the cops. 

    2. mini.finch

      mini.finch

      That's a good plan. I hope that the cops take this seriously and arrest him. *safe hugs*

  6. Fever and symptoms finally wearing off. Taking a slow weekend so I'll be ready for my internship next week. Also, I will be having a cat at my place for a few weeks as I signed up for "baby sitting" it. I'll see it as my summer support animal. 😺

  7. I having my "honey moon phase" with my fever right now. It usually raises in the evening, peaks in the middle of the night and declines during the early morning hours. The afternoon is my best time, even though I need to be careful and rest as well. I did some chores and finally managed to eat a proper meal. With a little luck, my antibiotics kick in today, or sometime tomorrow. 

  8. Hello everybody, especially thus patientally waiting for my response on DM:s or contents. 

    I have not forgotten about you, I am just sick. I will be for some more time according to my doctor. Do not worry, I have my fridge stocked, all medication I need and will only get better from here. 

    I just wanted to inform you so I don't come off as purposely distant. I am just fully occupied to eat ice cream, sleeping and keeping my mum updated. 

    All best

      Sending you strength and healing vibes!! I'm glad you're all stocked up to recover. I hope you get all well soon. ❤️ Don't worry about anything else...just focus on getting better!

  11. Second session today went well, but I think I gave my new help a lot of work to do. This is a Christian treatment, it involves praying and strengthening your relationship to God. My help said she'll probably have to pray a while and even do one day of fasting so she can give me her best feedback, since I basically told her my entire childhood and the beginning of my adolescence in one session.  She told me I did a good job though and that you can tell I am used to talk with professionals. :) 

    She's a super sweet lady with a lot of wisdom to offer, and she is also professionally educated. 

    1. mini.finch

      mini.finch

      I'm glad that it went well! :) She sounds very nice and very helpful. I've not heard of a treatment like this before...very intriguing. I hope that it goes well, and your help continues to be supportive and helpful to you! I'm so proud of you for opening up like you did!

      @mini.finch Thank you! It's alright, she is also treating my bf so I know her concept. I am a Christian but very informed on when treatments involving Christian acts can turn dysfunctional, so I am trusting my gut. 

      Have a nice one, so proud of you too Finch!

      @MeBeMary Awn, you brought me a flower. Yes, I am perfectly well now. I think moving places and adjusting just knocked me out for a few days. I spent some time in bed eating ice pops and watching Netflix. Turns out it was a good cure :)

  14. Took a covid test today. The nurse was very kind and let me pass on the nose test and just took saliva. I don't know how other countries do, but in Sweden they take samples from deep in your nose and it's very unpleasant. We will have simple spit-tests as off next week though. Just hoping I'm not sick since I am finally having social activities coming up after months upon months of distancing. 

    1. MeBeMary

      Had a test the beginning of the year. Had that nose swab, and yes. Very unpleasant. Hoping it is a negative result tho. Want you healthy, Wanna. :throb:

      @MeBeMary @mini.finch You guys are so sweet. I'll know today or tomorrow. It would really be a bummer to be sick now. Stay healthy you too guys! Vaccination's just around the corner by now, unless you've already got it ofc. As I am young and have no medical issues, I'll get mine probably by the end of the summer. 

  15. I am happy to hear that. I did advance in English in HS and am coming here almost on a daily basis, so it better pay off
  16. Yes, maybe you're welcome is the correct term. Surprise, surprise, English is not my first language 😉
  17. Hello @Croft, wishing you welcome as well Many survivors start out with thinking it wasn't that bad, but as we start getting some validation, our point of view might change. I am just telling you this, to describe the importance of finding a community. I am sincerely sorry for your trauma, and I believe you are doing the right thing. I am happy you'd give After Silence a shot. Take your time on this. Browse the site a bit, get to know our platform at your own pace. Once you feel ready to share, we'll be there for you. With that said, I am wishing you the very best upon your healing
  18. I feel really hot and tired today. Not sure why since I am not having a fever. I'll finish my dinner and then take a nice cool shower. I will also get ready to leave sometime this week. My boyfriend's grandfather is on his way of passing now, and my bf wants me to come stay after that it happened. I am very sorry for him, since his grandpa means a lot to him, but it's also heart warming that he'd like me to stay with him in the state of grief. 

    1. mini.finch

      mini.finch

      How are you feeling now? I hope you're doing better. ❤️ Aww, I'm sorry to hear his grandfather is passing. But it's very meaningful that he wants you to be with him during this time. Sending you, your bf, and his family lots of support.

    2. WannaMoveOn

      WannaMoveOn

      Thank you @mini.finch I am not as hot, but I'll probably take things slow today as well. It's quite up and down with his grandfather at the moment, but at least him and his mom made it to the senior home now in case this is it.Yes, I would have respected if he needed space, but I was relieved to know that he finds my company that supporting. 

      How are things with you Finch? :) 

    3. mini.finch

      mini.finch

      I'm glad you're not feeling as hot. It's a good idea though to take things slow. *hugs* I'm so glad you're there for him and that he feels comfortable having you there for support. ❤️ 

      Things are meh lol. I don't want to ramble/vent too much and bother you. :P Basically not great, but I'm doing what I can to stabilize.

  21. Hello @halflife, and welcome to After Silence. I am Wanna What happened to you shouldn't happen to anyone. If you were affected by a substance, then it's the responsibility of the other person to not take advantage. I am also sincerely sorry, that your partner holds you accountable for this.

  23. I believe all these hours of therapy sessions and investigation is finally kicking off. I am snacking more, fruits and a cookie or two, I am napping more and I am taking more breaks.

    Previously, I was in an evil circle of hyper activity until I broke down and was in low mode for months, then picked myself up and repeated the process. I am breaking tasks into bits more now, and I am questioning myself when I realize I am making too big plans again. 

     

  24. I´ve cleaned out my part of the apartment, packed everything and got my furniture delivered to my dorm room today. The student's association were nice and let me move in early as I am having a guaranteed spot in the fall. I have plenty of more space and storage area now, and the rent is basically the same as this place. I have two new roommates. One is in vet school and the other one has four paws and a very moving tail. 🐾

      @behindthesehazeleyes You did? Well, that's nice to know since I don't know too many considering a degree within agricultural science. I believe there will be lots of developing within efficiency of agriculture, alternative indoors farming and urban agriculture. I'd like to jump on that train and help finding ways to provide a growing global population with food and as well make crops more nutritious.
