Thank you. I really want to get started talking about it but I'm not sure where to go. It seems like there are a lot of options. Could you point me in the right direction?

Uhmmm! I'm not completely sure what happened to you, but I would suggest taking a look through the forums and figuring out where YOU fit the best in where you'd like to write everything down and talk about it. You can vent, there's a place where you can share your story.

Welcome Rachel. I am sorry for what happened to you. I hope this site answers some of your questions. What are you looking for out of this forum? There are different forums with different subcategories. When I first got here I just spent a lot of time browsing and reading what other people were writing, and after a while it got clearer which places were most useful for me or where I could support others. Hope you find your way around. :youcanheal:  :notalone:

I'm looking for support in getting past my trauma, understanding what happened, what is considered consent and when one should recognize there is no longer consent. I want to know if something that started out with consent could still be considered r*pe. Honestly, I'm just looking for a better understanding of these subjects and help getting past what happened.

Hi Rachel,

I was just about to send you a link to the section in Gathering Place that has a really detailed description of consent. But I saw you already found it. I hope it was helpful. Consent can be taken away at any point and that needs to be respected. If you gave consent, then changed your mind, and this is not respected, that is rape. Plain and simple. Sorry for being so blunt. Hope you are taking care of yourself.

Your bluntness is greatly appreciated, honestly. I always prefer straight answer to sugar coated. Thank you so much. I think I'm going to get the help I need here. I'm so glad I found this place.

Hi, Rachel, and welcome! :wave: There are several different forums covering different topics. Once you get to 10 posts the share your story forum will be unlocked, if (and when) you are ready to share your story. For general support, try the gathering place or the aftermath. I'm sorry for what you went through. I have found AS to be a wonderful resource and very helpful. :notalone:
