grateful to find this site but anxious

Recommended Posts

I'm a survivor of incest.  I know it has damaged me, and I've felt so isolated because of it.  I've searched for/explored survivor community's before, but this one seems exceptionally solid, well moderated, and vibrant, so I'm actually interested in investing some effort.  We'll see how it goes....

Welcome to AS @powerlesstoy. I'm sorry to hear about your trauma, that sounds pretty rough. Lots of people here on AS feel isolated its a hard feeling to get past. Looking forward to watching you heal and grow here on AS.

@powerlesstoy, welcome to AS.  I'm so sorry you endured what you did.  I understand the isolation.  This site is a good community - we're all different but there's this common thread between us.  People here are accepting and non-judgmental.  The moderating team is involved - and we are all survivors ourselves.  We're all trying to heal, and we're all at different stages.  I hope you're able to find the sense of community and support that so many of us have found here.

Hi PT.

Welcome to AS. I am so sorry for the trauma you have experienced, but your impressions of this site is right on. The members here are kind and understanding, and I modestly say our staff is tops. Our goal is a safe and supportive site for all, and it is what we offer to you. I am glad you are interested in investing some effort, because you definitely are worth it. Reaching out can be difficult, I know, but it can also be a big step. I wish you nothing but more big, forward-going steps on this healing path.

Mary

Welcome to AS! I'm sorry for what you've been through. It is isolating. I hope you find your way around the forums and find a way to heal. I wish you well.
