  3. I did some HTML at university, I'm in the IT business, and also used to do it as a hobby year ago (like late 90s early '00s) but now whenever I do it, I find it just, tedious. I much prefer CMSs John
  4. Hi Steph, Welcome to Aftersilence - I'm John I don't think anyone here will think you are crazy, I can relate exactly to what you're feeling, and it's completely natural to feel that way, but you're not alone with this, there's tonnes (quiet literally) of people here who can relate to what you're going through, and who are here to step through the healing with you. Take gentle care, John

  7. I think Ginger is an awesome colour of hair. I so wish I had Ginger Hair. On a serious note: I totally agree with this, I don't think there's a better way to put it.
  8. Hi there, It's ok to be shy, everyone is shy at first, it's a perfectly natural way to feel. Don't worry about it, over time it will pass John
  9. Hi Everyone, Hope you've all been well recently since I haven't been around much I had this idea the other day which I thought would be good for AS, so I thought I'd come here and suggest it. As many survivors would have experienced, oftent they can feel excluded and isolated from society, and as a result quiet often become introverted for a period of time, even if before abuse they where outgoing and extraverted. As a result, sometimes survivors can be bullied or discriminated against, because of the introverted and more recluse behaviour they're showing, and member of society can often take advantage of this, by bullying, descriminating against, or in general just making they're lives harder because they're seen as "an easy target" for such treatment. I personally know I can relate to such feelings, as such I'm suggesting that we have some kind of forum where we can go and share our experiences of bullying and discrimination after the abuse by other's in society Thank-you, John

    Hello =)

    Hi Stephanie, Taking steps towards your healing is a very positive way to deal with the past, and I think that by taking these steps you are now you're certainly only going to help yourself deal with what the future has to hold. I'm certainly looking forward to seeing you here in our online community John
  19. Hi, I hope this place does give you a place so that you're not so alone, AS is such a caring place and it really is so much better than being alone, I've met the most supportive and wonderful people here on AS, and I hope you do too. Also if it helps I'm pretty shy at times also John

    Hi there Kat, Welcome to AS - I think you'll find alot of supportive people here who are going through what you are going through, and then hopefully you'll be able to support each other through this I think you've taken a very positive step by joining AS seeking others in your situation, so well done Take gentle care, John
  24. Hey Meg, Welcome to AfterSilence - I'm glad you've decided to come here and no you're certainly not too young to be here , as dodo said it's 14 to infinity, I generally try to bluff I'm in the infinity bracket also , however I can only get away with saying I'm 18, (19 next month ) and have been here since I was 16, so there's certainly no worries being that age, and from what I got from being here from 16 is that people didn't seem to refrain from talking to me because of my age, infact because we can't actually see you, generally people just go on how mature someone sounds in what they right, rather than there actual age . That's what I've found anyhoo I think being abit of a loner is all good here too I'm pretty shy myself, although I do have my good and close friendships, which is good So yeah I'd say I'm abit of a loner too, although I do seem to have become more open as I've gotten older, so maybe the same will happen with you too? Possibily - I hope to get to know you also and I hope that you get to know many people here at AS, and that we can all offer support and help each other through the hard times, because that's really what AS is all about so it's great to hear you're also hoping to help others also, because as well as getting support, AS is also a great place to give support to your fellow survivors, which is in its own right quite helpful to yourself also Anyhoo, I've prob gone on enough for now, all I wanna say now is welcome and I look forward to seeing you here and please feel free to PM me anytime John
