  10. I had a struggle last week, where my application for postponing my studies at uni was denied. My psychologist had forgotten to sign my attestation for severe anxiety issues, which was required by the administration. Luckily, a signed version came with the mail today. Now I just hope, my symptoms described  will be enough. Marry Christmas everyone!

  13. Hello Survivor2021, I am Wanna. I wanted to wish you my warmest welcomes to this platform. You have my respect and sympathies. Taking that first step out of denial and reaching out has so much work behind it. It is such an effort, I want you to know that. In that first critical stage, our emotions, reactions and memories tend to take a toll on us, to say the least. Everything takes more energy, focusing is hard, relationships may turn difficult. Emotional outbursts, such as crying and range, as well addiction are common too. You are not alone, and you are doing the right thing by t

  17. Hello Little Bo-Peep, I am Wanna Welcome to After Silence. Words can't describe how sincerely sorry I am for your trauma, and how the situation has affected your relationship with your father. It is important that you know, that none of this is your fault. Coping is not easy, and before we find a healthy way, it might sadly take toll on our close relationships. There are ways for survivors and their near ones to get through, I hope you'll eventually experience that.

  19. My psychologist checked me for PTSD and depression today. Since I can sense joyfulness and am not having severe flashbacks, he wrote those possibilities off. He wants to see me again next week, so hopefully we'll find a conclusion to what I can do. I am just a bit scared, that I would be considered too well, because I am not sure how I will manage on my own.

      @BrightSide I am being as honest as possible, but apparently (according to the psychologist) you  feel sad about everything when depressed. I might not agree, but that is what was required for a clinical diagnosis according to him. 

      We'll see, thanks for encouraging me!

    Hi

    Hello simply, I am Wanna What happened to you is not your fault. I can say that right away without details. It is never your fault. If you are unsure about whether you gave consent or not, that is not right. You should always be sure you was safe and respected. If somebody has done something to you, resulting to the point of you considering it as SA/R/harassment, that is a big deal. Nobody should have to go through with this. It doesn't matter how "normal" this would be, that doesn't make it any less serious. I am sincerely sorry for your reasons to be here, but hopefully Aft
  21. Hello kemosabe, I am Wanna Welcome to After Silence! It can take a while before one feels ready to share.

I am happy to hear that you acknowledge our members to be kind, and that you feel less alone. This platform is a place to share, vent, exchange experiences and support. All within what you feel comfortable with. You might have noticed that we also discuss mental health among other things, like PTSD. You can talk about that as well if you'
  22. Hello BBAnn, I am Wanna Welcome to After Silence! First off, I am sincerely sorry for your trauma and all that comes with it. I am so happy you found us, that you've gotten professional help and that your partner is understanding. Having a community sort of completes the system, I believe. I recommend every survivor to find one. With this platform, you can find other survivors to exchange experiences, support and advice. You choose what to share and how much. You can talk about anything here actually. Being nervous in the beginning is totally fine, this is after all a crucial step.
