I feel so numb even though it’s been almost 3 years. I hate reliving it all and the nightmares and flashbacks still won’t go away. I don’t like opening up to people because I don’t know who I can trust anymore. I want to be happy again and just have it all go away....

Welcome to After Silence @Kristen nicole, as AKB said you've found a supportive and understanding community. I hope you find something here that helps. I understand the feeling of wanting it to all go away. There is no magic wand to wish it away but you have started your healing journey. Joining and reaching out here takes a lot of courage and courage is needed to keep stepping forward.

Hi Kristen nicole,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for what happened to you 3 years ago, and the struggles you are still facing. It is not right, nor fair! I understanding opening up is very difficult, but it is amazingly brave to reach out here. When and what you decide to share will not be judged and you and your experience is validated. Take your time and look around. When you are ready, we are waiting with tons of support. I wish you the best on this journey of healing.

Mary

Kristen Nicole, it sucks that some of the worst comes months and years after the actual abuse. Please know you are not alone in this. Some on here may be able to get it even if only in general. Trust is not something to be freely exchanged. It takes time to build with someone else. Even more so when one has experienced it being ripped away. No need to rush anything at all. Though there is always immediate help and support available here.

:luck:
