Hello!
I'm new to using online forums for support. I am hoping that this will help me on my journey of healing. :)

Thank you for the positive support! Might need a bit more than a cheer leading squad but I'll take all the help I can get and it's much appreciated! :)

Thank you Pain. This seems like a nice place for healing. I've been on this journey for a long time now :( I'm hoping I have come to a safe place that is understanding and compassionate.

Hello! I'm trying to find my way around and where I fit in, and I'm not sure :( Maybe if I do that tell your story, someone could help. I'm not sure I'm ready for that on here. :( Right now, I'm still reading the rules, reading new people posts and looking at forum topics. I hope your journey is starting out better! Let me know if you find a better starting point.

Hi Sunshine,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry that you experienced a trauma. Nobody has the right to hurt another this way. You will find tons of support on the site and know you are not alone.  Take your time, there is no rush and there is no pressure. Looking and reading is a good place to start. Please know it is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed to start. It took me a couple of weeks to even really venture beyond the Welcome area, when I first came. You are not alone. I do wish you the best as you start this healing journey.

Mary

Hi, LookingForSunshine, and welcome!  :wave: The share you story forum will be unlocked once you hit ten posts. As others have said, just looking around and reading other people's posts will help you get acquainted.

Thank you! Debating on whether or not I'm ready to share my story. :( I must say that the site has given me some strength and inspiration. It's amazing to see the number of people coming forward and their strength and others helping with words of support and encouragement.

Thank you! I find the support here like a breath of fresh air. I find it is much easier to talk in a forum than a group setting. I feel like there are less eyes on me and less judgement. It's hard to explain. I know in a group setting you're not getting judged, it's just an awkward feeling you get.

Yeah I've felt alone for a long time. I think I've finally found a great T and a place online (AS) where I belong and feel safe. Thank you for the warm welcome!

I'm new too, LookingforSunshine — also hoping this is helpful as we're all looking for healing. I've never used online forums like this before either. Glad you found this place!
