Getting through

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Thank you for stopping by to read :)

I am a survivor of childhood abuse. Feels strange to say it out loud.

I have many questions and am hoping that I can find others who can relate.

I’ve taken some positive steps by disclosing to  my close friends and sisters and I have signed up for therapy which will start  in about six weeks time. (waiting lists eh?)

In the meantime I’m hoping to find others who can help me through the next few weeks and I hope I can offer support to others too who may face similar challenges.

Thank you

Dear @Elle79,

Welcome to After Silence.  I'm sorry you have a reason to be here, but I can assure you, this site is full of caring and supportive people who can understand your experiences.  It is a brave step to say it out loud and reach out to friends, family and support sites like ours.  

I wish you peace and healing.

Hi Elle welcome to AS,  I am sorry for the abuse you went through as a child. I am also a survivor of child abuse by my father. Yes it's hard to say out loud but it's your first step getting your power back. You will find lots of support here.

Hi Elle, welcome to AS! I hope it helps to be here while you wait for therapy, it’s too bad there’s such a long wait. I wish you the best in  your healing path

Hello and Welcome to AS. I am so sorry for the trauma that brought you to our cite.  The 6weeks will hopefully fly by for you.  This is a great place to start it’s full of kind caring supportive people who have all been through something. It is nice to meet you and I am glad to see that we have another brave member.
