Hey, I'm New

Recommended Posts

I'm a recent (yesterday was the one month mark) survivor of sa and r.

I don't have a lot of people to talk to, who have gone through the same thing, so I'm relieved that I found this place. That said, I'm disheartened that so many can relate. 

At least we have each other, right?

hi @mountainlion75 and welcome to AS. I'm sorry to hear you were assaulted recently :( I hear you, many of us don't have people to talk to about this and I am very glad you found us! You're right, we do have each other. This site has been so instrumental in my personal healing and I hope it will be for you, too. :notalone:  :supportu:

when you are ready dont push yourself to hard it takes time to build up the trust to complete strangers     I myself go through periods where I post alot then dont post nothing at all 

it is all on how much you feel comfortable posting and how much and when you decide no one elses  decision and dont feel bad if you dont

Thank you, Beamcam :hug:It's weird. Its like I don't know what to say, or if I even should. Like my brain's telling me "No one cares", or something.

Did that ever happen to you?

Hi mountainlion,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for what you endured so recently, but do know you have found a very supportive site. It is sad that so many of us understand trauma and struggle in its aftermath, but it is also nice that we have each other. Take your time to look around and interact when you feel comfortable. You will never be judged or pressured. Everything you feel is normal for very unnormal circumstances. You are not alone. It takes great courage to reach out, so do not underestimate that. I wish you the best as you begin this healing journey.

Mary

Thank you, MeBeMary, for your supportive words. I hope I don't seem rude with a short response, I just don't know what to say. But thank you, again! You are very sweet :hug:

Welcome to AS.  It is hard to see so many can understand and know the feelings. You will find this a safe place.

Welcome to AS. I am sorry to hear of your recent trauma, I understand that over whelmed thought that all these people here have been through simalar trauma. Glad your seeking out help early, and am impressed by the bravery that you showed by joining and posting here. Nothing can make what happened right but together we can help oneanother with support.
