Hello everyone,

Im AJ. I'm new to this, but I'm looking for more support outside of therapy and the friends I've been leaning on. I was raped over a year ago and the 1 year mark was last week and it has taken its toll on me. I have had some extremely unhealthy coping mechanisms that I've worked through with therapy, but I find myself having to fight really hard to not fall into old habits. I just need some more support I guess. I look forward to talking with y'all.

Hi AJ.

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma that you experienced. It was wrong for anyone to hurt you so. You have found a very supportive site, the members are truly understanding and kind. I'm sorry that you have to fight hard, but glad you are a fighter. It's not easy dealing with the aftermath, and hope things become easier for your. I'm glad you have reached out here. I wish you well on your healing journey.

Mary

Thank you everyone for your kind words and support. I think the anniversary caught me off guard because leading up to it I had felt "normal" and okay but once the day came it felt like the levy broke so to speak. I'm still trying to find my footing again.

Welcome to AS, AJ. I am very sorry for what happened to you a year ago. I am glad to hear that you have T and friends in real life who support you, and I hope that AS will contribute further to your healing. Sometimes, talking to people who have been through sth similar can be particularly helpful.
