Finding my way

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I don't know if being a part of this site will help me, but I figure it is worth a shot.  

I've been feeling very alone, and I have been looking for people to talk to.  I've yet to tell anyone what happened aside from my therapist, so until I find the courage to tell them I'm hoping everyone here can make me feel less alone.

Hello snmls . 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. 

Know that you are not alone. 

Am listening and validating you and your experiences. 

Here is a link to the board guidelines and rules:

Hi snmls,

Welcome to AS. I am sorry for the trauma that you have suffered, but you have found a very supportive site. The members here are understanding and kind. What happened to you wasn't right and not your fault. Nobody deserves to be hurt like that. It's a huge step to just reach out, I know, but take a look around and I'm sure you will begin to feel comfortable and find your voice. I wish you well on your healing journey.

:notalone:
