Recent Survivor

17 posts in this topic

I am a recent survivor of R (less than 3 months), and I'm hoping to find people who can understand what I'm going through.  I'm in therapy and I'm trying to find creative outlets in art and writing, but I'm still struggling to cope.

I am so sorry to hear of your recent attack :(.  I wish you had not had such a traumatic crime against you, but I'm glad you found AS (After Silence) as a resource that I hope can be a small part of the kind and compassionate support you deserve to heal from what brought you here.  

I am glad you are in therapy and are using arts and writing to help you cope.  It's understandable that it is still a struggle sometimes to deal with this horrific crime, and again I hope that the people of AS can help you as you work to heal. 

Strength to you and welcome to AS :hi:

I am very sorry for what brought you here, but you've found a great site. AS is a very supportive and non judgmental community, we literally talk about everything. Ive found more healing through AS than through my therapists, but that's probably because I can't talk about it with them. You've taken huge strides towards healing already, you're incredibly brave for reaching out so soon. So many safe hugs if that's okay!

Welcome @TattooedTeacher to AS. I am sorry you have been treated cruelly so recently. You'll find a lot of understanding here that is hard to find elsewhere. I do hope that therapy has been helpful (it is for me personally) and I relate to using creative means to cope. We have a section here called Healing Through Creativity you might like to check out. :aswelcomesu::supportu:

Welcome to AS!  I am so sorry for the recent R you’ve endured.  You will find that many people here can relate. You will not find any judgement here just understanding. Wishing you the best in your healing journey.

So sorry for what happened to you, but I think you will find a loving a safe community here.  My R--- was almost nine years ago, but I only joined recently (and I wish I had joined a lot sooner).  I think you will find a loving and safe community with lots of resources available when you need them.
