  1. @herstardusteyes Awesome! Can't go wrong with Zelda. ❤️ I only recently got a Switch, so I'm a bit behind on the Zelda games. Haven't gotten Breath of the Wild yet, nor did I play Skyward Sword (?), but I really want them...maybe for my birthday. But I loved the older games. Wow, I didn't know there were Zelda knockoffs. That's hilarious. I'm a ps4 gamer, so that's mainly what I stick with. All kinds of games for me. I love too many to even list haha! RPG's, adventures, shooters, etc. etc.
  2. Welcome to AS! I'm glad you found your way here. You have an excellent list of things/people you enjoy. I'm also a gamer! What sorts of games do you like to play? As for drawing, we have a section here on the forum for people to share their creativity...so maybe you'll check it out some time and show off your art! We'd be happy to see it. ❤️ I'm sorry for what you've been through that brought you here, but again, I'm so glad you found us. You'll meet a lot of very kind and supportive people here. You are not alone. Best wishes! -Finch
  3. Welcome to AS, @JustNotMe. I'm glad you found your way here. I'm so sorry though for what you've been through. It's definitely not your fault...none of it was. None of it is. As the others have said, trauma is never deserved...and you aren't to blame. While our minds like to tell us we're at fault, the truth is that we aren't. We're all here for you. I hope that being on AS will help you to heal and realize that you aren't at fault. Wishing you all the best. Take care. ❤️
  4. Welcome to AS! I'm glad you found your way here. I am sorry for what you've been through that brought you here, though...but you are not alone. You'll find a lot of very kind and supportive people in this community to help you. Take care. ❤️ -Finch
  5. Hello, Purpletulip! Welcome to AS (again! I just replied to your other post, too). I'm glad you found your way here, though I'm so terribly sorry for what you've been through. You didn't deserve it. You are not alone in this journey to healing...take your time exploring the site. Sending you well wishes.❤️
  6. Welcome to AS, @CupcakesAreGreat! Thank you for introducing yourself. Though I am sorry for what you've experienced, I am glad you found your way here. Hehe, I'm the same...no way could I do an in-person support group! The internet is a great place for us introverts. 😄 You'll find a lot of kind and supportive people here that can relate to you and offer lots of support. You are not alone. ❤️ -Finch
  7. Aww, maybe you can get back into writing and art some time? I feel you, though...I haven't written in ages, and I draw very rarely now. But they're such good coping strategies...maybe both of us can get back into them eventually. You do belong here! Trust me, you belong. Try not to compare your trauma to others. I did that a TON when I first joined. I didn't think what I went through was "bad enough" to be here. It took a little while, but I found my belonging. I love this community, and I think you will, too. You are allowed to be here. ❤️
  8. Welcome to AS, @Rot_hither! I'm glad you found your way here. You sound like a very interesting and creative person. Do you enjoy writing then? We have a Healing Through Creativity forum on the site that maybe you'd like to post in some time...share with us your creativity! I am sorry for what you've experienced that brought you here. But you are among friends now. You'll find a lot of really supportive and friendly people here. I wish you all the best! -Finch
  9. I'm short on words tonight, but I want to say welcome officially to AS! I'm glad you found your way here and felt comfortable enough to post now. I am, however, so sorry for what you've experienced. You didn't deserve it at all. Sending you lots of support and comfort...you're not alone. -Finch
  10. T cut my session short today...that didn't make me feel very heard. I did NOT think we were done talking about what we were discussing. 😕

      Thank you @Doll6. No, I haven't. I have session on wednesday, so I might bring it up then. I chickened out on sending an email.

I'm so so sorry for what you've been through. What you experienced was undeserved and not your fault. You'll find a lot of friendly and supportive people here...you're not alone. ❤️ I will send you a PM after this with some helpful links. Wishing you all the best!! -Finch

  13. Welcome to AS, Pink Sky! I'm glad you found your way here, but I am terribly sorry for what you've experienced. You didn't deserve what happened to you. And now for the memories to resurface, that is really tough and painful. I'm glad that you're getting a therapist lined up...that is a VERY positive step towards healing! And joining this community is, too. You'll find a lot of kind and supportive people here. I wish you all the very best. Take all the time you need exploring the site (though it appears you've already been posting, which is awesome!). -Finch
  14. Welcome to AS, @Nicky242! I'm glad you decided to post. You're not alone here. It's normal to feel nervous and vulnerable, especially in such a new environment that discusses what you've gone through. I'm so sorry for what you've experienced that brought you here. But I am so glad that you are now ready to start healing. You've definitely come to the right place! I will send you a message in just a bit with a couple helpful links. Sending you strength and support. ❤️ -Finch
  15. Welcome to AS, @RedSunflower! I'm glad you found your way here. But I am terribly sorry for what you've experienced that brought you here. What happened to you was undeserved. You will find a lot of supportive and friendly people here...you're not alone! You'll get the hang of using the forum quickly, I think. It already seems like you've done a few posts, which is good. Take your time, though. Best wishes! -Finch
  16. Welcome to AS, @Mothman! I'm so glad you found your way here, though I am terribly sorry for what you've been through to need to find us. You've come to the right place to find support.

You'll find a lot of supportive and kind people here, so you're not alone. ❤️ Sending you lots of support and well wishes! Take your time exploring the site and post when you're comfortable. -Finch
  19. Welcome to AS, @Sageharris! I'm glad you found your way here, though I'm so terribly sorry for what you've been through that brought you here. I'm so sorry. You did not deserve what you experienced...especially to grow up with it as a child. Your father was supposed to be there for you and love you, not harm you. Working through the anxiety and depression can be very difficult (VERY), but you've come to the right place to start to get some help. I also suggest finding a therapist experienced in trauma if you haven't gotten one already. You'll find a lot of very kind and supportive peopl
  20. Really trying hard not to hate myself...but it's so difficult.

  21. Welcome to AS! I'm glad you made your way here. I'm sorry about what happened to your GF. You're very kind and supportive to be there for her and to come here for some advice on how to best help her. You'll find a lot of really kind people here that will be happy to help. Thank you for being you. Best wishes! -Finch
  22. Welcome to AS, Yeenodon! I'm glad you found your way here. Yes, we are an active forum! I am nonbinary and identify as agender, too, most of the time (gender can be confusing...so I'm stuck between just ID'ing as enby or being more specific with agender)...anyhoo. You are not alone. I'm so very sorry for what you've been through that brought you here. You didn't deserve what happened to you. But you are among friends now that can relate to you and offer you a lot of support and kindness. ❤️ It's very cool what you are interested in! I never heard of either of those creatures, so it
  23. Welcome back, Andrea! Nice to meet you! I'm glad you returned to the forums. First off, I suggest posting in the Help Desk about your past account. The moderators can help you sort things out with it. They can merge the old one with your new one, so you don't lose your old posts. Secondly, I'm so sorry for what you've been through. CSA and any other abuse sticks with us for years...age doesn't matter. I'm sorry to hear you've been doing not so great lately. I hope that your health improves when you have your second hip replacement. ❤️ I'm sure it's very frustrating, but you're doing you
  24. Welcome to AS, @RainbowRose! So nice to have you here. I'm glad your friend recommended us. I'm so sorry for what you have experienced, though. It was undeserved, and none of it was your fault. I'm glad to know that you're in therapy. Have you found that it helps? PTSD is a demon to work with, but therapy can help so much. Thank you again for joining and for reaching out to us. I will send you a PM after this with some helpful links. Best wishes! -Finch
