The time has come

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have just joined AS and it's great to see how much love and support there is in these forums. I find it really comforting and it's really going to aid me in allowing myself to open up and share my story so that I can begin the process of healing. After 13 years of remaining silent, it's time for me to step up and help myself. This will be a good first step for me I think. The hard part will be facing my shadow side and some very deeply stored trauma that doesn't want to come anywhere near the surface.

Thanks for lending your ears :)

Hi Kate , welcome to AS. I am sorry for the trauma that you went through. That first step is always the hardest but I am glad you took it. You are right there is a lot of love and support on this site.  For me the biggest thing I am not alone and others understand how I am feeling. I understand when you say deep stored trauma that is stored, I am just going there myself, it is hard but I know I will be stronger and find me at the end of this. Take your time going over the site. We are here for you as you start this journey of healing.

Kate you are in a good place here. I am new since October never had the courage to post until recently. I have been in therapy for the past 8 months.  I have a wonderful support system with my advocate and therapist.  Very little family support...in fact none...

Everyone is beautiful here.  Stay true to yourself..
