All it took was a computer screeen

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, of course, I am new to this site and new to all of this in general. 4 years ago I was sexually assaulted and of course the trauma that follows. for the first 2 years I told no one but my boyfriend and his sister. then my parents. then no one. I never got help, I never turned him in. I just hid from the problem while I let it eat me alive like some nasty fruit that fell behind the fridge. After Silence is the FIRST place im reaching out and ive already cried like 5 times because im so happy to have just found a place. basically scared half to death but Im so exited to finally have found a place to help me and I look forward to meeting others and learning how to fix myself.

 

and all it took was to find something on the other side of my computer screen :)

Hi Nona,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma that you have suffered. It was not right and it was not fair. Nobody has the right to hurt you. I am glad you have some outside support, and now you will find even more support here. I found this place almost 18 months ago, and I felt the same as you. I think many of us have, so do know that we understand these mixed feeling you have, but I think you will find that it just takes a little time to become comfortable. You have taken a big step finding us here on the other side of the computer screen and another big step on reaching out thru it. I wish you well on your journey of healing.

Mary

Welcome, and please know that I was sobbing through my very first post here, both out of grief AND relief.  You have found a safe place and can start your journey to healing.
