Just wanted to say hello.  I am new and trying to navigate my way around here. I am a 45 year old survivor of csa. Desperately looking for support from others who have been there and understand.  I am confused by where to post what and also there seems to be alot of really old posts on here so i'm trying to find the more current posts. Also, are these posts all public or private to the group only?  Any advice on finding my way around here? Thanks😊

Hi @Warriorgirl1 welcome to As :wave:

Just take your time with things and post wherever you feel is right. It can always be moved if necessary.

The newer posts will show up as recent posts and have a time indicator next to them to show how long ago they were posted.

Have a browse around and see where it takes you. 

Good thoughts and blessings to you x

Hi Warriorgirl1, and welcome to AS!

I am sorry for the csa you endured. I know you will find support from understanding people here once you find your way around :)

I am going to send you a pm with more information about the site and where to post. In this 'welcome' forum the posts are public, and a few others labeled public,  and also the blogs are public. However most of the forums are private for members only.  The newest posts often appear in the Gathering Place and Aftermath Forums, as they tend to be the most frequently used. 

If you navigate to the Home page, you will see all the forums listed, and then on the right hand column it says 'topics' and those are all the newest posts in each forum, so you can click directly to that post if you are interested in it.

I hope this helps! Feel free to pm me or any member of the Newbie Support Team if you have any other questions!

I wish you the best as you find your way around and settle in here,

g

Hello and Welcome to AS @Warriorgirl1! I am sorry for the trauma that has brought you here. I really :throb: your choice of name. As you can see from my avatar I'm a big fan of warrior ladies myself! There are many of us that can relate here and you are definitely not alone. Take your time to find your way - there is a lot of information to sort through. I wish you lots of warrior girl courage as you walk your healing journey! :youcanheal:

Hi Warriorgirl,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the childhood trauma you've endured. It was not right or fair to be hurt in this way. The good news is that you have found a supportive site with many understanding member. I know for me, feeling not so alone has been a big help. You got some good advice already, if I had to add...sometimes there are some older posts pinned to the top of a forum. These were deemed to have special interest or information. Under pinned items, the most currently active post will be at the top. That is my little tidbit, hope it helps. I wish you the best on this healing journey.
