Hi Everyone


Recommended Posts

Hey! I'm new to this site and to the support aspect of being raped as well. It has been 9 years since I was raped and I still haven't come to terms with it. I have never talked about it outside of informing my very close friends years after and talking to my therapist. My therapist advised me to join a support group to realize I'm not alone and there are people out there to help, so here I am. I'm not ready to go to an in person support meeting yet, so I thought starting here would be helpful.

Hi Jersey,

Welcome to AS. Sorry for your trauma, but AS is a very supportive site. Your therapist is right, you definitely are not alone, and it is good to seek out others. Before coming here, I had the belief that I was the only one and I stayed in denial for years. AS has helped me to find my voice and has made me believe that I am not alone. Everyone is kind and understanding here, and you will see that as you look around. I wish you well on your healing journey.

Mary

Hello jerseybeachgirl, welcome to this group. You are not alone. I'm sorry about what happened to you. It was not your fault.

This group online is a good source of support. There is also information you can read. I'm glad you are seeing a T.

Healing is a journey and takes time. Healing is possible. Go at your own pace. It is okay to take care of yourself.

May you be well.
