Hi Srmajah,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma you have you endured. Even after 30 years, I understand how things can hide in your own mind, only to come back decades later. It is actually not uncommon. It is ok to be nervous, but please know, you will not be judged here. Our members are understanding and kind and accept you as part of our community. We all have a different variety of struggles, but share a common thread. We are trying to heal from the wrong done to us. I do wish you the best as you walk down your healing path.

Hi and welcome @Srmajah to AS. Sorry that you were assaulted 30 years ago. I am happy to hear you have reached out for help thats a great first step. Take your time to get used to everything on AS. I have found that no matter what youve been through someone here can relate to you everyone here has been through something or has watched a loved on go through the same things. I hope this site is as helpful for you as it has been for me.
