I'm new here but I'm hoping to find support and advice. I am just now going to therapy for my trauma although its been decades since. I'm just feeling very alone. I need to know that eventually the pain lifts a little....I'm not really sure what else to say....I like to paint and write and i love rock music lol. Hopefully this is a good enough introduction. Thank you  for bearing with me

@faeryblossoms a warm welcome to you. This place is very supportive, and also full of information and shared experience. Personally I am also working with decades-old trauma, and I know that it being long ago does not diminish the pain. I'm glad you're here for extra support besides therapy as you take this step in healing. :notalone:

Hello @faeryblossoms.   Welcome to After Silence.  I'm sorry you were traumatized in your past.  Beginning to deal with the memories and long-suppressed feelings is painful and difficult.   As you work through your healing, you will not be in so much pain later.  Trust in yourself, and reach out when you need support.         :aswelcomesu:

Hi faeryblossoms,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma you endured, but you have found a very supportive site. Many of us can relate to your struggles and it's never too late to face the wrongs that were done to you. I was one of those people that just kinda suppressed it all, when I found this site. I was relieved and grateful to find such a supportive community. I hope you look around and come to feel the same way as I do. I wish you the very best on this journey we call healing.

Mary

Hi, @faeryblossoms - welcome to After Silence!

I love to write, too.  It's always been my biggest outlet.  I hope you'll check out our Healing through Creativity forum when you get an opportunity - you can share some of your art and some of your writing there, if you would like. :)

It's nice to 'meet' you, although I am sorry that you found us as a result of traumatic circumstances - but am hopeful that being here is another several leaps in the healing direction.  I wish you well in this journey - and hope that you find this is a great place to be and there's never a shortage of support.

All the best,
Capulet

Thank you. This site has already helped so much in the less than 48 hrs that I have been a member. Finding this website made me realize that i have so many more supporters than i ever dreamed possible.  And that makes me brave enough to move forward.
