  1. Hello, my therapist recommended this website to me. I just registered today so I'm still trying to figure out how to work everything. I'm sorry that we all have a reason to be on this. It makes me relieved that I'm not alone. I'm only 7 months into treatment and still on the first stage of treating the trauma so I have a long road of recovery ahead of me, but I'm hopeful to have people to relate to while going through the process. I've only told my boyfriend of four years(I finally opened up about it when we were together for 2 years), two very close friends, and my therapist about what happened to me.
  2. Hi everyone, I'm new and looking forward to spending some time here. I am almost 21 years old and I have been with my lovely husband for a year this March. This January was the third year anniversary of my assault and I have only recently been deep diving into my experience with my therapist. There have been many instances that I have been taken advantage of and it's been a lot to deal with mentally. I found AS after doing more research into online support groups (the first group my therapist recommended wasn't very active). My hope for being part of this is being able to help myself validate my experience and to find others that are also struggling to deal with a similar experience to mine. I really look forward to being active and participating when possible. Thanks for reading! -A
  3. Hey guys, I'm new to this community and so thankful that there is a forum for mutual survivors. I was going through intense therapy while I was in college with someone who had specialized in helping those who had been victims and it was going well. However, with this new virus becoming an issue, my therapy has ceased. She isn't doing any online work, I suppose due to the sensitivity of material and we were at a very crucial point and I was recounting my story and really telling it in detail for the first time. It's really been weighing on me and effecting my moods and my connectivity in current relationships, especially since I've had to come home after school has closed. Being in this environment is really hard, and my boyfriend had actually recommended searching for an online community since I no longer had therapy. While I know it is not a substitute, it is helpful to know that at least there is a community, there is a place where I can feel heard and safe, and there are people that understand. I appreciate any response that I get, and I appreciate you reading this in full.
  4. Hello, I’m Abbie. This site was recommended to me by a friend. I’m not all too sure if I’m ready to tell my full story as of yet but I’m sure that in time I will. I’ve got a lot going on right now and I think I need to be part of a supportive community like this where we can all relate to each others struggles. I guess I’m just here to say hi to anyone that might see this and that I hope you’re doing well - things may be tough for you at the moment but we can get through this one step at a time. Take care everyone x
  5. Hello everyone, It's always been hard for me to reach out for help but a recent event has left me feeling trapped in my own head and unable to confide in anyone close to me. Just so we're not strangers: I'm 23 years old, identify as a ciswoman & pansexual, and love to create art whether it's a drawing or jewelry or a pair of mittens or a song on my ukulele. I live in my feelings. When I'm not doing social work (I'm much better at dealing with the emotional pain of others) I'm usually reading in my hammock soaking up the Texas heat or playing frisbee/soccer/etc or spending time being silly with my friends. My sign is Pisces and my favorite podcast is MFM (if you know, you know). The triggering event that brought me here happened just over this past weekend so although this isn't my first time embarking on a journey of healing from a sexual assault, this 2nd departure into the void hurts in a new & worse way so this is my first time seeking any kind of real help outside of myself and my best friends. I desperately need to escape my own psychological echo chamber and hear some voices of those that understand without having to provide so much excruciating explanation. Thank you for reading, Coral (a fitting nickname for a Pisces, given to me by my collegiate soccer team captains)
  6. Hi everyone, I just wanted to introduce myself quickly here as I’m brand new to this forum and although I’m a fairly anxious person by nature, I’m looking forward to coming out of my shell a bit and working through my stuff. A close friend of mine recommended this forum and by looking through quickly I can see how supportive and positive this space is! I’m a survivor of multiple assaults dating back ten years and have always put healing on the back burner until now. I look forward to the next steps in my journey and getting to connect with fellow survivors!
  7. Hello AS community, I'm Bambs an even shorter nickname off of Bambi, which my friends call me. I'm a 25 year old woman and I enjoy working out, pole dancing, gaming and watching DnD streams while cuddling my dog. I am joining this community a few days before I begin therapy to try and help me break out a little and get used to talking about difficult things which I do not enjoy. I would love to chat with women around my age or older into the same things as me or who have had similar experiences which I'll post about in the appropriate thread. Much love Xx
  8. Hi, I have no idea how to start this or what I'm doing. I suppose why I'm here should come first.... I have endured CSA, DV, and a recent, about 9 months after getting out of DV marriage, R***. I hope got the abbreviations right. I'm here because, after my recent R*** , I find that I am not able to cope or manage in the same way I could before. Those that I have turned to, well I have a few that have been as great as they can be, others not so much and relationships have been lost. I spend a lot of time online researching my feelings and reading Survivor stories. I find they help me, give me hope, and make me feel less alone, and crazy. I'm hoping this site/forum (resource) will help even more. Some not so horrible stuff about me.... I LOVE my job. I know how rare that is. I am an animal lover. Frogs are my go-to decorative animal. Blue has been my go-to color for about a year. I am teaching myself to paint with acrylics, following you tube videos. I also just realized I have more non-negative things to say about myself than I thought I did. However, that's all I have right now. Hoping this is a step forward, Navias85 BTW - Navias stands for "Not A Victim I'm A Survivor", my best friend came up with it when I told her I wanted to join an online support group. I hope I live up to it 😕
  9. Hello everyone, After five years, I am finding the courage to break my silence. After five years of therapy sessions and learning about self-love, I am inching my way to confidence. A cloud of guilt that was looming overhead has finally started to lift. A transformation is coming, I can now tell bits and pieces of my story without the guilt lingering and the tears running endlessly. There is some sense of hope lingering to take the guilt's place. I hope that by joining this community, I might be able to nurture this newfound self-love and let it bloom. I look forward to learning from you all and someday soon sharing my story.
  10. Hello everyone, I recently signed up to this after deciding it was finally time to confront the reality of what happened to me in the hope that I may be able to gain new insight on how to live a happier, healthier life through connecting with others. This is my first time posting on any kind of forum or really talking about my past at all, so this is very, very new to me. I am generally an extremely private and closed person so it feels a little overwhelming and I'm unsure of where to start...! Anyway, I look forward to settling in and becoming a part of the community.

    Hello!

    Hello everyone! I am KeLLe and I am happy to have found this space. I am a survivor and am hoping to work through some things here, as well as to support others. Thank you for accepting me!
  12. Well I had typed out this whole thing but then my computer crashed and I don't feel like re-typing all of it so here's the short and sweet version I havent talked about whats happened to me or how I feel about it. I'm new to this. I go by PurpleBee, or Bee. I am 22, college student, and female. I just want to say how I feel and be listened to in a safe and understanding environment. Thank you.

    Hello

    Hello I’m a single mum. I’m a work in progress. I don’t know what to put here I’m still finding it hard to process the events of the last 2 years. My friends are so kind but say things like ‘Why can’t you see how far you have come?’ And ‘why didn’t you leave sooner?’ And some ‘it cannot be true or the police would have arrested him’ I’ve lost my job, my dignity, my sense of self, my financial security, my children’s sense of safety (tho mine greater) my church, my close friends, my extended in law family. It’s been like multiple bereavements. I have big holes in my memory and what I can only call sudden emotional flooding but no idea why or from what. But I gained my freedom and tho it looks wobbly a future. And people on the edge of my life have reached out to support me in unexpected ways. I’m here because I’m hopeful. Like this is a wound but it’s not going to define me. I think each person here is v special. I’m glad to find you. I’m not getting any counselling. But I’m reaching out when I need to. I was dating but I realised I was doing it to mask noise and that it put me at risk so it’s just me now.
  14. Hi y'all! I'm a new member as of a few days ago and here I am to make my introductions! I am 20 and I use they/them/theirs pronouns. I'm a csa and sexual assault survivor struggling with anxiety and severe depression. I'm looking forward to finding support in this awesome-seeming community!
  15. I am 32 and my incident happened in November of 2011. I recently watched '13 Reasons Why' on Netflix and the special where they talk to the cast and crew. They stated how important it is to talk about your experience, saying that the more you tell your story the less power it has over you. When I reflected on that, I realized I hadn't really talked much about it. I started looking for a way to talk about it and found AS, which was so perfect because I felt like I had just shut up or shut down. I didn't want to burden my family/friends with my experience more than I already had. Thank you for being here to give me this opportunity from the safety of my home. I can't begin to express how much I appreciate all the work your teams must do to keep this site available for us.

    Hello

    Hello, I have just found this website. Im still confused about what happend just looking for support from people that have been through the same experience.
  17. 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
  18. Hello everyone....I'm not really sure what to say or where to start. You can call me Lucky. During my childhood I experienced all different types of abuse. I'm finally learning how to deal with it. I joined this website to connect with other people who understand. I hope to meet some new friends and connect with people.
  19. Hi, Just a quick intro post, since I haven't figured out where to begin exactly yet. Definitely still finding my way around this site, and very nervous at the prospect of "talking" about things really almost no one knows anything about....but so grateful to have found somewhere to at least have a starting point.
  20. i'm still getting used to this website, it is very insightful and so far has been helping me feel comfortable with myself and with what I would like to talk about. Normally i don't like opening up, but I feel this is a good place to start. so thank you for providing this website for so many of us who never thought we had a voice to begin with and for providing us with people who have experieced similar things that we felt we were the only ones suffering with.

  22. Hello, my name is Katie,and i am 16 years old. I enjoy music, video games and reading, I go to a student-led school which means we make all the rules and guidelines, and i take all my classes online as this is how the school works. So, i hope to be able to go on after silence a lot and start my journey back onto the good and healthy path of adolescence after the trauma. I am a diagnosed GAD (had it since i was little) and i have had a Depression Disorder since Middle school. Since my abuse both have become considerably worse, and i wanna work on becoming the person i was before. My goal on after Silence is too meet new people, maybe some other teens like myself, and talk about our experiences in life that led us down the path we are on. I want to grow away from my abuse and help others do the same.

  24. HI everyone my name is Annie, I am 61 yrs old. Hope I found good place here, recovering from repressed memories of traumatic childhood abuse, my Doc says I am also suffering from PTSD from it all....I need to be able to talk about and share with others.. if in wrong room please let me know or direct me to correct room... going through this alone is awful, I need support. Thanks.
  25. Hi everyone, I've never reached out to other survivors before, so bear with me. I didn't even know a place like this existed, but I am glad it does. I see the "Share Your Story" section is passworded, but I am unsure where I should post my story. I hope someone can tell me where to share, because sharing might be the first step to healing.
