Hello, I'm New Here.

Recommended Posts

Good evening everyone,

This is all very new to me and I am hoping this will help me with my recovery and healing process. It has been a few years since I was abused, but in the last several months it has been really affecting me. I had a trigger in April and since then I cannot sleep through the night without help and it has really complicated my life. I have tried the therapy route and talking route, but have not found it successful. No one in my life knows so I am hoping to get some support as well as offer support to others.

Hi Meg.

Welcome to AS. I'm very sorry for the trauma you have suffered. It wasn't fair and you did not deserve it. You have found a very supportive site tho, with many wonderfully understanding and kind members. I know it's not easy reaching out, but kudos to you for doing so. It's a big step. I wish you many more steps on your healing journey.

Mary

Hi Meg... I am new here too. Its been about 16 years for me and I was triggered a few months back too. Its hard talking to other people in my life because I feel they may not understand or judge me. Here though I already see that won't be an issue. It is a comfort knowing that.

Hello Meg. 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.

Triggers are very difficult aren't they. Sorry you're struggling right now.

Know that you are not alone.

Am listening and validating you and your experiences.

Here is a link to the board guidelines and rules:
