New and nervous

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

Just a quick intro post, since I haven't figured out where to begin exactly yet. Definitely still finding my way around this site, and very nervous at the prospect of "talking" about things really almost no one knows anything about....but so grateful to have found somewhere to at least have a starting point.

Hi SweetPerks,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma that you have suffered, but you have found a very supportive site. The members are kind and understanding. It is normal to feel nervous, just know that we all have been new at one point and have felt this same nervousness. Take your time and look around. You will not be pressured or judged on this site. I wish you well on your healing journey.

Mary

Hello SweetPerks. 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:
