  1. Hello and welcome to AS, @flybygone! I'm glad you found your way here. I'm so sorry for what you've been through, however. It was wrong and painful, and you were a child...it was so undeserved. I'm so sorry. It takes time to heal, and it takes time to build up to a point when you feel READY to heal. So it's ok that you're 37. There's no age limit to starting to heal. It's totally normal to be nervous in a new place, too. But please know that you're safe here. AS is filled with kind, caring, and supportive people that have been where you've been. You're not alone. I would suggest
  2. Triggered by seeing a name in an email...fun stuff. Could use hugs. ❤️

      Thank you for the hugs, @Field8. Of course they're ok. ❤️ Thank you again, sis. 

  3. Welcome to AS, smiley_3! I'm glad you found your way here. You will definitely learn a lot here about yourself...there is a lot to learn. You would think that if you experienced something, that you'd know everything about it, but that isn't necessarily the case, as you've found out! So it's great that you joined this community. I'm so sorry for what you've been through, though. You didn't deserve to be abused. It was not your fault. Sending you lots of support and strength...best wishes. -Finchy
  4. @Artemisia Welcome to AS. I'm so glad you found your way here. I'm so very sorry, though, for what you've been through. Traumaversaries can be very difficult. You're not alone in your feelings. You'll meet a lot of very friendly and supportive people here to be with you during this tough time. You've gone through a lot and have persevered, I think you will push through this traumaversary as well. Wishing you all the best...sending lots of support. -Finchy
  5. Welcome to AS, @blankfairy! I'm glad you found your way here. You'll find a lot of very friendly and supportive people here. I'm so sorry for what you've been through that brought you here, but you've found the right place. If you would like the password to the Non-binary specific forum, let me know, and I can give it to you. (Or ask any other moderator/admin.) The general LGBTQ+ forum doesn't require a password, but gender-specific ones do. You are safe here. Best wishes to you on your healing journey!! -Finchy, they/them
  6. Welcome to AS, @notmyrealnamexx! I'm glad you found your way here. I'm so sorry for what you've been through and that you've been having bad days. But you are not alone...you'll will find a lot of supportive and kind people here. Take your time exploring. -Finchy
  7. I'm sure it has taken a lot. I'm so proud of you for coming back and reaching out. I'm so sorry for what you've been through. I hope that you are safe.
  8. Welcome back, Rachal. I'm glad that you're reaching out again. We're happy to offer you support any time you need it. Perhaps make a post in Aftermath or Gathering Place with what you need some extra support with? Sending you lots of comfort and strength. You've got us with you. -Finchy
  9. Aww, you're welcome and thank YOU for your kind words! Ahh ok, from NCT! I'm not super familiar with NCT, though I like their songs. I just don't stan them. I mostly stan girl groups...Dreamcatcher, TWICE, Purple Kiss, Mamamoo, etc. But I do love BTS and SHINee as my boy groups. Anyhoo, nice to meet you!!
  10. Welcome (officially) to AS, @guiltyascharged! I'm glad you found your way here. I'm so sorry for what you've been through and that it's affecting you a lot right now. As you've probably seen from the site already, there are a lot of very friendly and supportive people here. You're not alone. I hope that being here will help you to heal. -Finchy P.S. Do you like Kpop? I'm going based off of your profile pics...trying to figure out who they are but I can't! I love kpop...nice to meet another fan! (Provided I've got this all correct haha...)
  11. Welcome to AS, @Littlebitt! I'm glad you found your way here. You're not alone...you'll meet a lot of very friendly people that can relate to you in this community. Take your time exploring. Wishing you all the best on your healing journey! -Finchy
  12. You're welcome, Dahlia. It can take some time to explore and figure out things in a new place like AS, but you'll get the hang of it.
  13. Welcome to AS @Dahlia29! Nice to meet you. I'm glad you found your way here! Though I am so sorry for what brings you here...what you've experienced is wrong, unfair, and not your fault. I'm sorry you had to suffer at such a young age. You definitely don't have control over what happens at that age. I was around the same age when I was being abused, too. I also thought, "Well, I'm old enough to know what's wrong. I'm old enough to stop this from happening." But no, you're really not. Anyhoo, I am SO glad that you're seeking help now. You'll meet a lot of very friendly and supportive people her
  14. Hello there, @SunnyShark! Nice to meet you! I see Mary mentioned me. I'm Finchy, my pronouns are they/them, I'm aro ace, and I also love video games! (Oh and Disney, duh.) My obvious favorite character being Elsa, but Rapunzel is a veeeeeeeery close second. At least for the Princesses...but overall Disney character? WInnie the Pooh! You have a lot of similar interests to me! Though I haven't watched any anime or read any manga in some years now...but the video games, yes, they are my life. I also love jrpg's. Going by your favorite styles, have you played Rune Factory 5? I've been playing

    Hello and welcome to AS, ayame! I'm glad you found your way here, though I'm terribly sorry for what you've been through. And nightmares of the abuse are horrendous. You're not alone in your struggles. You'll find a lot of kind and supportive people here that can relate and help you through things. Take care, and I'm wishing you all the best. -Finchy
