New here, looking for community :)
NumbEveryday posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hi peoples,I was looking for resources with my friend and stumbled across After Silence. I won’t go into details but on June 30th,2019, I was R by a stranger. I am having a very difficult time coping and finding people who understand what I’m going through. I really would like to hear others stories and really find a community to where I can get support. Look forward to getting to know all of you ^_^

Han68 posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hello! I am new to this site so I am still fumbling around hoping that I am doing things by the rules. I haven't participated in anything like this in the past and I am excited to see what things this brings! Thank you for welcoming me into this community!
My First Post
Han68 posted a blog entry in The Way to Get ThroughI've never tried to run a blog before, so I hope that the messiness of this blog won't deter you from reading what I have to say. I want to start this blog by saying that I think that sexual assault or R (or anything that could fall in this category) is NEVER the victims fault. Never ever ever. But at the same time I still feel that this doesn't apply to me. What happened to me has changed who I am as a person and how I think about the world and the people in it. It has made me a much more cautious person and a much more clingy person. I will never say what happened changed me for the bet

I Just Got Here
SidneyJ posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hey, I'm Sid, I just turned 21, I live some place very cold. My favorite things to do are watching Youtube for hours on end while cuddling a stuffed elephant (doesn't have a name yet) and my kitten Anatastia! I'm constantly surrounded by soft and fuzzy things and I have coffee instead of blood in me! Please feel free to come say hi! -Sid
jhsdcsjdcvbdj Hello Everyone :)
jhsdcsjdcvbdj posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hey there everyone, my name is Nathan, and i'm a survivor, (so far) of sexual abuse by a male family friend. I have tried many times to do something about this, but i always get scared and run away to drugs and alcohol. Getting some counselling in a few weeks, so hopefully i can nip this in the bud. If anyone wants to chat or hear more of my story or whatever, i guess i'd be happy to oblige, although, i don;t talk about it very much. Just reaching out i guess, don't leave me hanging, or do, whatever. Peace and Love to you all. <3

Finding my way
snmls posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hello everyone, I don't know if being a part of this site will help me, but I figure it is worth a shot. I've been feeling very alone, and I have been looking for people to talk to. I've yet to tell anyone what happened aside from my therapist, so until I find the courage to tell them I'm hoping everyone here can make me feel less alone.
Not New To Healing, But New To Here
timetotell posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hello, everyone! I'm so glad I found this place - all the other survivor forums were very inactive... Um, I go by KJ on the internet. I'm 19, and a lover of all things psychology. I love writing, reading and painting. I used to love performing on a stage, singing and dancing but haven't been able to do that for a while. I'm diagnosed with depression, anxiety and PTSD. I've been in counseling for a couple of years. I thought it was time for me to find a safe place for deeper healing and discussion of the deeper issues. I'm excited to meet everyone and post things and read helpful things.
pinksheeps posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hi everyone, I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm 20 years old and live in Dublin. I am very very new to all of this, it has only been about 36 hours since what happened happened. I haven't fully wrapped my head around all of it honestly, let alone effectively talked about it, but being it in a community of people who might understand how I feel is definitely comforting. I just want to thank you all for all the love and support you provide each other and newbies like me everyday. It's a ray of light in a dark situation, so thank you all I look forward to meeting you and finding some resolu
1LessSadRobot7 posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hello all, My name is Zach. As long as the internet has been around, I don't know why it took me so long to find a forum to talk about these issues and to quit feeling so alone in all of this. I am 22 and in college. I think I was sexually abused between the ages of 5 and 10. It has been about 12 years since then, yet it still rules my life to this day. Hoping to gain some peace.
New And Supported:)
newbeginnings21 posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hi, I'm newbeginnings21. I was attacked on Aug 31, 2013 and after weeks of dark and despair and loneliness, decided to seek out some support and love from other survivors.This is my first day posting and having full access here. I have posted a lot since i've had so much pent up, but I just want to say thank you to everyone who has replied, messaged me, and talked to me in chat. I feel so welcome and like I'm not just a random poster who will never have her stories read. You guys are awesome. Thank you.
A Spectator ...
ladyxiang posted a topic in Public: Welcome!Hi everyone. I joined the site a few days ago and after reading some of the posts of other 'first-timers' I finally felt I was ready to write something. Forgive me if I ramble. I feel like a spectator of life, as if everyone around me is in the parade and I'm left standing on the sidewalk watching all of them pass me by. Picture, if you will, the floats in my parade. There are no floral tributes. The floats in my parade are, instead, what I call 'life events', those things that normal people encounter in the course of a lifetime: graduating from high school, attending college, having a career
