    Hey milagra, I'm sorry you're feeling so sad right now, but please just keep on trying to put one foot infront of the other and you will be able to overcome the hurt your feeling now, and heal from what you've experience. This place is such a supportive place and very validating, so if there's anywhere that's going to help you on this journey it's AS, so I think you've done the right thing by coming here. Just remember to put one foot infront of the other, and post here when you need some support and understanding

    Hey thether82, Welcome back, I hope you're able to find a comfortable spot here at AS where you're able to keep coming back and I hope you find the support you need here John
  23. Hey Lisa, I'm also from Australia, the Hunter Valley region about 3 hrs from Sydney, and I'm a regular there because alot of my friends go to uni there. I'm sorry for what happened to you at the train station it was very wrong, but your mum and friends are right you've done nothing to be ashamed of, or silly about, however I would also understand if those feelings happened, because I felt that way when it happened to me. It's also normal to not cry, as Lindy said, sometimes it takes a while for your body to react, however if you do cry that's also normal, each persons experience is different and each person involved in these bad experiences is different also, so the way each person reacts is different, so just react in whatever way you feel is right for you. We're here to support you no matter what feelings and reaction you have as a result of this
