You can call me Junior. I just turned 27 and after spending almost all of those years confused, in denial, and otherwise not dealing with what happened to me, I've decided to get some dialogue about it going. I really don't have anywhere or anyone else to go to about it, partially contributing to the very long wait. I don't have any expectations about where posting here will take me, but after internalizing for so long, I'm finally willing to find out.

See you all out there.

Hi Junior,

Welcome to AS. I understand exactly how you feel, as I felt the very same way when I came here in January. I was nervous and skeptical, but this place has helped me find my voice, and I hope it helps you find yours, too. There is no pressure, take each day and each step as it comes. I wish you well on your healing journey.

Mary

Hello.

I am unsure how to work this website... so I am posting here as a first attempt.

My personal struggle is coming to admit/accept/whatever that what happened was sexual assault.

I don't want to take over OP's post... but I'm not sure where else I can share/post...

The guilt and shame that comes with surviving a sexual assault are what I am dealing with right now..
