Hi, not really sure what to say here other than hello! 

I hadn't spoken about what happened to me in over 15 years until confiding in my therapist today, so feeling a little vulnerable and felt like the time to look for a bit more support.

Hi, Curious_george! Sometimes, we say the most with very little. You will definitely find some of that support you're seeking here. There are many sincere souls around these parts who will try helping you feel at least a little less alone.

Welcome @Curious_george, it takes a great deal of courage to disclose and to join an online community to reach out for support. It's understanding to be feeling vulnerable, it's not easy to speak about something you've held onto for so long.

This is a supportive, understanding and non judgemental community. Take your time looking around and post when you feel comfortable and safe.

Hi, @Curious_george. Quite a few of us didn’t say anything to anyone for many years after. I have found AS to be a very supportive place ... & it was helpful to me to read what others had posted and realize I was not as alone as I felt. Take your time to feel comfortable here. Feel free to read or post as you wish to. No one here will rush you.

Hi @Curious_george and welcome to AS. As others have said we are happy to have you join our community of survivors however I am sorry for what has brought you here. Many of us understand about not talking about things that have happened years ago. For me it was a 20 year anniversary last January that spurred me to get back into therapy and find this supportive community. As you start to find your way here feel free to reach out to any of us should you need a helping hand. I wish you lots of courage and healing as you embark on this healing journey.
