  1. I first joined AfterSilence more than 5.5 years ago and it was a cruicial resource to dealing with trauma. After a very recent trauma I felt like it could be helpful to come back. I'm very sad to see that due to a server crash only about ten of my over 1000 posts remain- all that documentation of past healing is gone. I feel like my life is falling apart and not sure how to get through this. All I know is its crucial to have people who I don't know personally to be able to talk with. Can't believe I'm at the start of this process again. So many emotions- will post more elsewhere. Looking forwa

Just a suggestion... Megan
  7. I just read through this whole thread! I posted before and refound some of my favorite quotes! Here are some new ones: A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is brave five minutes longer. Ralph Waldo Emerson All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.

  9. Hi, I'm Megan. I'm 17 and a junior in high school. I stopped using this site for a few months because I didn't feel I had the right to. I blamed myself for what happened, and realized that it probably couldn't have even been considered "sexual assault". So now I'm just saying my "incident". I'm back, because regardless of the label of what happened to me, I felt sexually violated. I have PTSD which has greatly influenced my life. I know a lot of you have been through things a million times worse than me, and that I have no right to complain in many peoples eyes. But I've suffered too. And I
  10. Wow! I just read through this whole thread and what a lot of great ideas! I'm working on my self image too, and have been really struggling with coming up with ways to increase self acceptance. i think my self hate is more about the fact that i cant accept that i am human and make mistakes and believe i am just not valuable and then i take it out on hating my body, because my body seems more easy to change than my worth as a human being is! here are some tips i can offer: 1)Recite a self affirmation such as “I am worth fighting for” twice every day. 2)Celebrate dedication and effort over re
