Hello People

Recommended Posts

Hey there, 

So I'm new to this, and I suppose that my telling myself that I don't belong on this forum or that what I experienced wasn't what it was or that it wasn't as bad as others or that I'm fine ignoring and avoiding the confrontation of my past, is why I am finally finding myself among a support system. So that's why I am here, finally getting around to dealing with my own past and how it as affected me during my life. I also think that hopefully finding others with a similar experience will help validate what I feel so I can stop feeling like I am making a bigger deal out of things than I should and to be able to find the right language to discuss my experiences..

Welcome to AS! I’m sorry for the trauma you’ve endured.  You belong here regardless what you’re telling yourself and I can relate to that. I’ve been there.  Take your time and look around. Say as much or as little as you like. You’ve found a very supportive site.  Many can relate in there own ways.  Best wishes on your healing journey.

Hi Ljung,

Welcome to AS. I am sorry for the trauma you endured, but you have found a very supportive site. Please do not doubt yourself for being here because "it wasn't as bad..." I'd say at least half of us have said those very same words, including myself. The reality is that all trauma is bad. You are here and you are welcomed and your experience is validated. You are not alone. Take your time and look around. I wish you well as you start your journey of healing.

Mary
