Hi - I'm new to After Silence

Recommended Posts

Hi @Belle_in_Australia,

Welcome to AS! 

I am sorry you are feeling alone,  I think many of us can relate. It can be difficult to reach out or talk about it in 'real life' and we don't always get the support we need and deserve.

I have felt much less alone since coming here and I hope that you will too!  It is a supportive place where you will be heard, believed and supported by other survivors who understand what it's like.  Even though our stories are all different there are a lot of similarities in our feelings, struggles and paths to recovery.  I wish you all the best on your path,

Hi, @Belle_in_Australia :wave:

I think that has been one of the biggest benefits for me with coming here - realizing that I’m not as alone or abnormal as I felt. I hope you will find that true for you, too.

Welcome! 

So sorry about what’s brought you here. 

 

And i I certainly know you feel. Throughout my whole journey so far I’ve always felt alone. 

Reaching out is hard and scary but you’ve made your first step. 

I’m relatively new here as well but so far this place has been so lovely and supportive. I hope you find the same!

I just wanted to say hello. 

I'm a survivor... Sometimes I feel so alone. I think this forum will help me feel less alone in my recovery. 

Hello Belle,

Welcome to AS. I am sorry for what you've experienced, but you are not alone. AS is full of supportive and understanding members and is a place to not feel so alone. I felt the same way before I stumbled across this site, never realizing I could have nonjudgmental validation place to be accepted. It's not easy reaching out, so consider that a big step on your recovery. I wish you the very best as you walk this journey of healing.

Mary

Hi, Belle in Australia! It can truly feel like we are isolated and lost at times. No one will fully get all we feel and think. There can be sincere strength though in general unity. I hope you find some comfort within this safe space going forward.

:luck:
