Hello, 

I am new here, just got the approval notice today. I am from Minnesota, USA. I am 23 and identify as female, and into males. My favourite TV shows are Ghost Adventures, A Million Little Things and most importantly Supernatural. I have been dealing with my past for a few years now, but for the first time in forever, I finally feel like I am ready to talk. I am a huge fan of the theatre, I work at a theatre company in St Paul, they just happen to work with people with disabilities. I love it, my lifelong dream came true last month when I made my first paycheck doing theatre. I spent over a year training in DBT and CBT skills, as well as having attended therapy that focuses on that area of training... I hope with the help of this site and the exploration of some in-person support groups near me, that someday I will be able to understand and believe that I am still an amazing person and that what happened was and is never my fault.

Hello and welcome to After Silence!

Thank you for taking the time to reach out and to introduce yourself, you sound like you keep really busy with your (very rewarding) work!  Your clients are VERY fortunate to have you!  

I am sorry to hear that the circumstances of your past have brought you here, but this indeed is a truly safe place to seek support and compassion from others who can relate.  I am also hopeful that the off-site support groups work out for you - I recently joined one, myself but they only meet once monthly for an hour and a half, so it kind of leaves me feeling a bit too disconnected afterwards - doesn't help that we sometimes get different faces.  But for now, this and that will do. :)

Anyway, take your time in looking around.  Hope to get the opportunity to get to know better someday!

Best wishes,
Capulet
