  1. Hello @Minty and welcome to After Silence, I am Wanna You are being strong for finally finding your voice and breaking away from a destructive relationship. I admire that you would stand up for yourself, but I also understand that this must be a very hard realization. You are doing the best you can, and I wish the very best for you and your children in this. This is a safe place where you can connect with other survivors, get advice, vent, chat and share whatever you'd like. You own your story, and we believe you. I always encourage survivors to also consider professional guidance.
  2. Hello @Dee12 and welcome to After Silence, I am Wanna This is a safe place to share whatever you'd like. We fully believe you, and only you own your story. I understand that you have been through a lot, and I am sincerely sorry for all that trauma and pain. You are being very strong for reaching out, that is very important to do. I was relieved to read that you've gotten into professional help, which I advice every survivor to do. However, if you feel like that a certain method or counselor doesn't fulfill your needs, it is perfectly fine to share that with them. If you still feel
  3. So I didn't get the job I got an interview for, but now my family and I have decided that they will support me financially while I take a break until the fall. I am figuring stuff out. Also I made oat meal with sunflower and pumpkin corns, raisins, banana and peanut butter.

      Thank you @BrightSide, I am not ashamed. I mean, I did what I had to. I made sure uni would hold my spot and I got professional help. I don't want this forever, but sure is nice now. I've learned during a very short time that I suffer dissociation, an anxiety disorder and possible complex trauma. 

      I am so grateful for people like you in this world.

      Aww. I'm sorry about the job not going through, but you did your best. ❤️ I'm so glad that your family is being extra supportive! That's fantastic. You deserve to be supported. You deserve this break. 

      And that sounds so yummy!

      Thank you @mini.finch, I did need to hear that I deserve this. I guess this is a gap year :) Wishing you a best day!

  4. Hello there @write track, and welcome to After Silence!

  6. Today I tried peanut butter and jelly oat meal. I have my oat meal with sunflower corns and pumpkin corns, mixed with raisins. Today, I added a spoon of peanut butter and some jelly since I don't fancy bread right now. It was good!

      That's awesome!  I love Oatmeal! I lived for a few months at a Buddhist monastery (in the USA) and we used to have oatmeal every morning, and my favorite combo: adding crunchy peanut butter warmed berries (from frozen) or plum sauce (basically applesauce but made with plums), a healthy scoop of plain yogurt, a little brown sugar and... a dash of soy sauce!  The soy sauce is just to add salt and it distributes well into the oatmeal rather than salt granules, but it's literally a "dash" so you don't taste it.  It's also great because if you cook the oats with the salt in it makes them gluey, so if you reserve the salt until after it's cooked the texture is way better.  Ok, end of silly unsolicited oatmeal rant, your oatmeal choices sound delicious!

      Peanut butter gives me heartburn, so I don't have it very often...but what you made sounds really good! I'm craving oatmeal now! 😄

  7. Hello @sunflowers88 and welcome to After Silence, I am Wanna First off, I am sincerely sorry for what you have been through and your reasons to be here. We welcome all kinds of survivors with all kinds of backgrounds, and we do not judge but believe you. You own your story, please know that none of this was your fault.

  8. I made apple salad with sunflower corns, raisins and cinnamon. I had that with pancakes and honey. Worth a try, folks!

      @mini.finch another tip, mix down peanut butter in your oatmeal. Even better, with bananas as well. It gets like a dessert, but it's very nutritious. :) 

  9. I just cured my headache with ginger bread and berry tea. Hope you'll have a nice day/night :)

      I have a migraine right now...too bad I don't have either of those! I'm glad that your headache went away! ❤️ :)

      @mini.finch I come from a family with a trend of headaches. I was on my way all day, so I probably had low blood sugar. Are you stressed? A shower could do. I direct the shower yet on my neck to reduce tension. Black tea is also something, and I don't know why, but licorice weirdly helps me. 

      Hope you're better!

      @ActivistAlly @mini.finch  @MeBeMary You guys make me happy. I will get back to uni in the fall, as I am already guaranteed a spot, but I figured doing some shifts and getting some extra money won't hurt. Y'all have a best day!  :bighug:

  21. Hello Hufflepuff03 and welcome to After Silence! I am Wanna I am deeply and sincerely sorry for your trauma. This was not your fault. You have no shame in this, please know that we believe you. Especially during our adolescents, we form our picture of what intimacy is supposed to be like.

When somebody takes advantages, we might sadly carry the patterns of that experience with us in new relationships. I am very glad to hear, that you find your partner supportive.
