  1. Errr...hi?

    Hi Danielle, welcome! I'm from england too! I guess you've now begun to find where to start as you've made a few posts, but I just wanted to say it doesn't matter where or how you start your healing process. It's an individual thing and it takes time, but there's no set way to do it. Good luck! x
  2. Hi I'm New

    Hi Ivana, Welcome to AS! I think it's great that you're able to talk with your mom about things. I couldn't for a long time until recently (I'm 19 now). So anyway, I hope you find the support you're looking for here, AS is an awesome place! Diana x
  3. Hey All :)

    Hi Sally, Welcome to AS! I'm 19 and from the UK - it's great to see another Brit on here! I joined when I was 17 too, and this place has helped me so so so much! I hope you find AS as friendly and supportive as I have. If you fancy a chat or want to ask anything, feel free to pm me. Take care, Diana x
  4. Hi I'm New....

    Welcome to AS Moon Wolf! I've had a shot at answering your questions, and I haven't read any other replies so I'm sorry if I repeat things! Stranger rape and acquaintance rape are both just labels so not every form of rape will fit into boxes like that. I understand that it can feel important to be able to label what happened, but I don't think a label is helpful in this case. Somebody who was raped by someone they'd known for a few hours would probably face similar issues to both stranger rape survivors and acquaintance rape survivors. Why is this distinction important to you? I haven't, but I know it can and does happen. Whether the abuser is older or younger, it is still abuse. If this situation applies to you: it wasn't your fault, you didn't want it and your feelings are entirely valid. I'm sure you'll find people here on AS who have been abused by someone younger than themselves. No. I worry about whether I 'asked for it' a lot myself and I think many of us do. We didn't fight back, didn't say no, wore tight-fitting clothes, acted flirty with the person who later hurt us... I don't want to minimise what happened to you, I just want you to know that you're not alone with feelings like that. There is a reason why you stopped and you yourself know that it wasn't because you wanted to be hurt. You didn't ask for it and it's not your fault. I hope you find AS as friendly and supportive as I have. Take care, Diana x
