Just wanted to say a quick hello. I am new to this site. I have never posted on one of these sites before although I have been wanting to for a while. There are days when I really want to share my story. I have typed it out on a few different sites now but can't bring myself to send it out there for all to read. I have told 1 person since it happened (23 years ago). There are still times when I just feel I need to let out but I don't feel comfortable telling anyone I know so I'm hoping being here will help.

Welcome

It does feel better to type out even just the basics which I have done as I cannot yet bring myself to put into words the disgusting things he did

Hello Jenz1004, welcome to AfterSilence, I'm Paula, one of the newbie support team here. Its good that you are able to write out your story, but there is no rush or pressure to share it here yet., You can do that only when you feel ready.

If you need any help getting around the board, please let me know,

take care, Paula :hi:

Just posting on here and admitting this happened to you is a start, maybe you could share a small bit at a time, just what you feel ok about, instead of tackling everything all at once?

One step at a time jenz. Its not a race. We are all here to support u if and when u feel ready to share. I havent found the courage to say much yet! I waited a long time...about the same as u before I told someone. Its still a secret to all but a few select people. Time is a healer as the saying goes but only once ur facing up to it and i ran away and hid from it for too long so am only just beginning the healing process. Uve taken the first steps towards helping yourself heal.Well done.

Welcome Jenz :) I am in a similar situation. One day I'll type it, but not today. You took a big step though and you should be proud. :)
