Hello! I'm Rach.

I was sexually assaulted last April and have been on the path to recovery ever since. I'm a university student so I've luckily had the support of the school's advocacy program for legal support, counseling for therapy, and the health department for anxiety medication I recently got on.

I'm graduating in May and want to continue being a member of a supportive community, which is how I came across this site. I hope to become acquaintances with you all and give and receive support when needed!

Hi Rach,

Welcome to AS. I am sorry for what happened to you last April, but you will find tons of support here. I am glad that your school was helpful, there are many horror stories as how some schools try to wipe the crime under the rug. I am so glad that did not happen to you. A good support system is always good to have...and you will find that here. Take your time and look around. I wish you the best on your journey of healing.

Hello Rach,

Welcome to AS! I'm glad you found our site, and that your university has been offering supports, like Mary mentioned that doesn't always happen so I'm glad to hear it and hope things are starting to change for the better in that regard.  I am truly sorry you were assaulted last April, and have reason to be here at all, and I hope that your recovery goes smoothly.
