So happy to have found this forum!

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I am new here, I found out about this forum in the resources section of a book I just purchased, I Never Called it Rape by Robin Warshaw. The website just jumped out at me as I was flipping through the pages.  I am a survivor of aquantance rape and am on here to talk to, learn and support other survivors.

Looking forward to healing with you all <3

Hi PhoenixRoxanne,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma you've experienced, but you will find tons of support here. Our members are understanding and kind. I was not even aware that we were listed in such a book, but happy it is there for those like you to come across it. Take your time and look around. I wish you nothing but the best as you travel down your healing path.

Mary

Hi @PhoenixRoxanne - welcome to After Silence!!!  I am sorry to hear of the circumstances under which you've found this amazing site, but am hoping that being here will provide you some peace, comfort and healing.  

I had no idea we were listed in a book - that's very interesting to know.  Maybe I'll see if my local library has it!  We truly are a good bunch and this site is truly dedicated to providing a safe place for all of our cherished members.

It does take a village - so, thank you for all the support you'll be providing to others.  I am sending you all of my best wishes as you embark upon your healing journey.  Looking forward to getting to know you.

Best,
Capulet

@Susan lipschutz And welcome Susanna, yes it is hard to talk about these things and tell our stories. This is a very supportive and understanding place, and I hope as you feel ready you will use it to get the support you want, by reading, writing and sharing as you like.
