    Hello @Wolfly, and welcome to After Silence I am Wanna. This community will be there for you. You can choose whichever topic you like, but also, being the "fly on the wall" is okay as well. You can participate or just follow content, we are happy to have you. This is a place to receive support, relate, exchange advice, vent and much more. All kinds of survivors are invited. I am sincerely sorry for your reasons to be here. Figure skating is a lovely sport. I am from Sweden myself, where hokey and skating is a thing. I love cats 🐈 If you would need anything at all, have
  2. My psychologist decided to move our appointment two weeks earlier since he considered my condition being critical enough. Although I have exams that day, but we could meed about one week earlier. At least he takes me seriously then. I am hanging in there, just wondering how to manage this concept we call "life". It's a tricky business. 

    TW: Anxiety 

    Tried to study, but my brain released adrenaline which affected my vision. I however am planning on some studying after dinner. :)

      @Enigma87 Of course, I'd like that :) Things just tend to be nothing or everything to me, it seems. Sometimes I am cheerful and feel like life is just out there to be explored, other days I am just meh. But at least I have a professional for that soon. ❤️

      @MeBeMary Thank you. My brain just kind of decides "it's all or nothing", so either I am fine or I kind of fall a bit. Will try to make this day productive. I wish you a wonderful Friday.

  3. Hello Bee! Welocme to After Silence I know Discord, but never thought of the idea to find a group for survivors through that platform. If there is something that is comparable, it's probably that you can be fully anonymous here just as in Discord. You decide what to share and what you'd like to talk about. This is a place to get empathy, relate, exchange advice and much more! I am 20 myself, studying to become an agronomist. You can PM me any time. Best wishes, and stay safe - Wanna ☀️
  4. So I did at least a couple of calculation assignments today. I did not attend full classes because of anxiety attacks, and a nurse at my clinic advice me to go to the ER if I consider my situation unbearable. My session has been moved to 2 weeks earlier, at the same day as my exam, but I have asked my supervising teacher if I could do it another time. 

  5. I am not sure if I did well today or not. 

    I didn't attend many classes. I tried one this morning, but ended up with an anxiety attack and laid down to do some breathing exercises. Then I had lunch, another class, but got interrupted because the clinic called, so I could get an appointment ASAP with an psychologist. Then I went on a walk, came back, sat a full class.

    Then, I had dinner, exercised, cleaned the bathroom and talked to a friend for almost an hour. Now I sit here with some homework again at 11 pm. I think I wasn't much of a student today... but at least I tried...

      You did what you could for today and that's all that matters. Some days are like this.

      @snmlsYes, I guess accepting comes before coping, right? 


  6. Hello Salem! I am Wanna, nice to meet you Very, very good thing that you decided to try out a community.

  10. @h-o-p-e Having people question your credibility when it comes to such traumatic issues is jarring. I am sad to hear that nobody believes you. That will change with this community, you deserve that!

  16. Hello M34. Welcome to After Silence I am Wanna Starting out here hopefully makes you feel less alone and sense some sympathy and understanding. You own your story and are invited to share once you feel ready to. I second @MeBeMary trauma does tend to change us. Healing is a transforming experience, but you can actually come out stronger and happier from this. The healing journey will be challenging and rocky at times, but with unconditional support and the right methods, you will have a foundation to rely on. You don't have to be alone in this and you shouldn't either. Good thing
  17. Hello, I am Wanna Starting to open up about repressed trauma is a significant step. Being scared and worried is completely normal, although you shouldn't have to be.

  20. Hello @Mlbrown welcome to After Silence! I am Wanna You are right, burying it and avoiding it won't help you. Every survivor needs to be allowed to actively heal and processing. That you have turned to a therapist is an important and good step, I am happy you decided to. I am also happy that you are here. Having a community always gives you some back up, with others who can relate and sit with you. This is a place where you are allowed to share in your own pace. Of course there is patience, and only you decide if and when to share certain things. We appreciate members both sh
  21. Hello @sophianoelle I am Wanna, welcome to After Silence. 🌻 What happened to you is not okay and you did not by any means deserve this. This can, sadly, happen to anyone. From what I read, it sounds like he is blackmailing you. This is illegal and you can get legal guidance anonymously.

We are all here to share, heal and exchange support. Yes, we are anonymous and strangers at

  24. Welcome back Poppy Of course we want you back. I am happy to hear from you. Sending you my best wishes and support. - Wanna ☀️
  25. @ToTheMaxima Hello Max! I am Wanna My warmest welcoming to you. It can take loads of time until realizing what has happened. Some survivors know straight away, others might need years. Finally knowing is painful, and processing can both feel difficult and complicated. Important is, that you are aware that none of this is your fault and that you are not alone. I agree, the reason we all are here is saddening to say the least, but the opportunity to support another and relate is precious. I think you describe what we do here wonderfully! You are in my thoughts too. I
