Hello Everyone

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I've been on the forum now for a few weeks just getting acquainted and familiarized to this. I was a little anxious to post anything about myself but just now mustered the courage to really put anything out there now that I am a little bit more comfortable. I am a mixture of feelings but hopeful this will help build on my foundation of healing. To everyone's journey that it can be healing and hopeful.

Hi Deval,

Welcome to AS. Taking time to look around is not a bad idea. There is never any pressure, but the members here are very supportive and understanding. It's not easy to take a step out like this, but every step is an accomplishment on your healing journey. I wish you the best.

I just started my account here, and am also very tentative about sharing. I feel as if my story isn't "real". That it wasn't an assault at all, it was just a young, impressional girl, and a horny boy being a horny boy.

I'm hoping that talking about it more will help me work through this.
