  1. 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.

  2. @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. ❤️

  3. 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!!

    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. ❤️ 

  6. 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. :bighug:

    Hello Finchy, I am glad to be in the community. Thank you for helping with the site, and moderating it! To answer your P.S, you've got it all correct, he's Taeyong from NCT, haha. I love kpop too! Always cool to meet another fan, definitely.

    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!! 😄 

  8. 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! :lol: I love kpop...nice to meet another fan! (Provided I've got this all correct haha...)

  9. 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!

    Thank so much, Finchy, for your warm welcome and for sharing a little bit about your own experience. I’m glad to be here but I feel it will take me a little time to figure out how to navigate this website and access private forums. 
     

    All best, 

    Dahlia29

     

    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. :) 

  11. 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 here. You're not alone.

    Best wishes to you. ❤️

  12. Hello there, @SunnyShark! Nice to meet you! I see Mary mentioned me. :P 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 it for a while now, finally nearing the end of the main story. I'm also playing a bunch of other games...what are you playing now?

    I'm sorry for what brought you here, but you are not alone. I wish you all the best on this healing journey. ❤️

  13. 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. ❤️

  15. Hello, @Hurthero2022, and welcome to AS! I'm glad you found your way here, though I'm terribly sorry for what you've been through. :( You didn't deserve the hurt and pain that you've experienced, and at such a young age. It was all very wrong, and not your fault. As you've seen already by reading, you're not alone. You'll find others that can relate...and that are very supportive and friendly. I wish you all the very best on your path towards healing. ❤️

    Wahoo, go buddy! :clap:

    I only just came across this thread (a month later) but reading through the suggestions, I wondered if in addition to the subforum for survivors with disabilities, it might be an option to have one for BIPOC survivors too. I'm white myself, but I've noticed one or two members raising issues related to race recently and it struck me how rarely this comes up on the forum. It must be a factor in so many people's experience of abuse and recovery, so I wonder if a dedicated space (free of white folk!) would make more people feel safe to discuss this. I'm probably way too late adding this now but thought I'd put it out there for future updates!

    Thank you, buddy!! 😄❤️ 

    I think that's a really good idea! We'll see what we can do. :) 

  17. Welcome to AS, @anakim! I'm glad you made your way here and decided to post. :) It takes a lot of courage to do that in a new place. It can be scary! But you did it...and it is one of your first steps towards healing. Or at least, extra healing. You'll find a lot of very supportive people here. You're not alone. ❤️ I'm so sorry for what you've been through, but again, I'm proud of you for starting to heal. Best wishes to you.

  18. Welcome to AS, Jonny! I'm glad you found your way here. It's wonderful you've been seeking help. I'm so sorry for what you've been through. None of your trauma was deserved or your fault. 

    You'll meet a lot of very friendly and supportive people here. And yes, lots of areas to post...but it's ok. Take your time. Post where you feel it's post about whatever is on your mind, and we moderators will move it if it needs moving (no worries). ❤️ Best wishes!

  19. Hello and welcome to AS! I'm glad you found your way here. It can be a bit nerve-wracking to first be on a site like this...so take your time. You're not alone, though. You'll find a lot of very friendly and supportive people here. I'm sorry for what you've been through, but you will be sure to heal with all of the support you'll gain in this community. Wishing you all the best. ❤️

  20. Welcome to AS, @Tangerine_VVV! I'm glad you found your way here. :) You've come to the right place to make friends and to be a friend (I love how you worded that). I'm sorry for what you've been through...it was undeserved and not your fault. But you are in a great community now, one that provides a lot of support and can teach you what you wanna learn. ❤️ Take your time exploring. I wish you all the best. You're not alone!

  21. Hello and welcome to AS, @Kaze6! I'm glad you found your way here. I'm sorry for what you've experienced, though...it was undeserved and not your fault. Please know that you aren't alone. You'll find a lot of very friendly and supportive people here. :) It's ok to be overwhelmed at first. I think most of us are when we join a new place...so much to explore, so many people to encounter. But as I said, you're not alone. ❤️ 

    I wish you all the best. Take your time, ok? We're here for you!

  22. Welcome to AS, @Funnyface! I love your username. I'm glad you found your way here. You're definitely here for the right reasons, too...it's time to heal and find happiness. You deserve it. :) You'll find a lot of very friendly and supportive people in this community. You're not alone. I'm sorry for what you've been through; it was undeserved and not your fault, but you will start healing now. I'm wishing you all the very best. ❤️

  23. Hello @Mark1983! Welcome to AS. I'm glad you found your way here. First off, as you can see, I've created a new separate thread for your intro post, so it won't get lost in the other welcome thread. :) You deserve your own!

    I'm so sorry for what you experienced as a child. You were a baby. That is just sickening. I'm so sorry again. It must've been so difficult to hold inside all of your emotions and memories...you were very brave to finally speak up. Your silence has been broken, and there's nothing shameful of that. It was not your fault. And there is nothing wrong with being your age and just talking about it now. Many people hold pain inside for long periods of time...it's very sad, but sometimes we do it to protect ourselves.

    Sending you lots and lots of support. I'm wishing you all the best. ❤️
