Hello Lefty. Welcome to AS! It is my wish that you find this site as helpful and healing as I have in my healing journey.

I am part of the NST (Newbie Support Team). What that means is that I (or any of the mods/admins/NST) can help/direct you as you learn how to use the forums. Should you have questions, feel free to send a PM to any one of the AS staff.

You've taken a huge step in reaching out. This is a big step in healing from abuse of any kind. Take all the time you need in sharing. I'm glad that your r*pe crisis counselor suggested you use a place such as this. It's very helpful indeed.

Know that you are not alone.

Am listening and validating you and your experiences.
