      Thank you @Capulet @MeBeMary and @abhaya for your support. Im getting there slowly. Hopefully finish the content by the end of the week. It has been a tough one.

  3. @Free4ever and @Tee06 and ALL members with message issues Im sorry that you can not access messages and not talk directly to your AS friends. I wanted to let you know that I have set up a thread for chat and support while messages are down 🧡 B
  4. @Capulet I am not complaining just letting you know. I do not have the options to access my messages, notifications or my profile on my mobile but I do have these options on my laptop - both using chrome. I have tried logging out and back in again on my phone which wasn't easy when you cant access you own profile! it is still not working I know that others are also not getting access to these at all, despite downloading other browsers. Anyway, really - IT IS JUST SO GOOD TO HAVE AS BACK. Thank you so much for all that you have done to get us back up and running again. 🧡 B
  5. So glad to be back! I missed you all!

      No problem, sounds good, honest I'm not doing so great and almost everyone has covid so yeah it's sucks and family are starting to annoy me.

      @Free2Flyoh no, did you get it too? I really hope all of your symptoms stay mild! :getwell: 

      It must be hard all cooped up together, keep coming here for company and distraction, video call and phone other friends and family so that you do not feel so trapped and stuck talking to the same people.

      I don't really know, at night time I get like flem on my chest but during the day I'm usually fine, it's a very strange virus cause one member of the family had symptoms for two days then all of a sudden their better again, but yeah definitely a strange virus.

      It is hard, mainly cause certain siblings can't go a day without annoying someone, so far we've only had one person that's been cleared so they can go out place everyone else in the house has to remain in.

      I don't oftenly talk about it but one of my hobbies is radio communications so hints I can't go out places I just sit and talk on the radio, I don't really have any friends I can video call but yeah that's how it's been here.

      Hopefully all is good in your town and home 🙂.

  10. I AM going to find me again. Today Im not having any of it, I accept how things make me feel with compassion and Im fighting back! I guess it is going to be a new me, one that is honest with herself and those close to her about her pain. This is not going to take me down with it - HE does not get to win!

      That is exactly what it feels like! Oh it would be nice to cry and have a long tight, safe cuddle before they go. Thank you for your honesty and support in this 💛 you can always PM me too.

      And yes you can follow, I used to think it was creepy but I understand now how following allows you to support friends. :friends2:

      I am ok.  I have very few people in RL, so I guess I look for safe spots online to hide and try to heal.  Thank you for letting me sit here for a while!  Hope you’re safe and well!

    3. BrightSide

      BrightSide

      Me too, AS is definitely the best place to hang, feel safe and heal. Im not very social in RL either I get too much anxiety. You are welcome to hang here, Im glad of the company. I am OK too thanks for asking 🧡 B

  15. Iv tried looking this up. Idk if feeling like this is weird.. but after my assault all I feel like I’m good for is sex and when I do have sex with my partner I feel ashamed (even though he knows about what happened and makes sure to make me feel loved) it’s like no matter what I still feel like a sl*t after sex even oral sex. Do you have any advice is this normal 

    1. BrightSide

      Hi @Michellessecret 

      Im sorry for the difficulties that you are having since your assault. From posts I see on this forum and from my own experience is it common to have some unhelpful internal thought processes around sex. But you are not a sl*t and you have nothing to be ashamed of and you are more than a person just for sex. I am glad that you have found AS and I am glad that you are reaching out. If you post within the forum section Aftermath, you will get some more responses of how others manage these feelings. Sitting with you for support if you would like? B
