Hello everyone

My therapist recommended this place to me, saying it could help me feel less "different" and alone and help me handle my past, so here I am.
I'm 20 years old, five years ago I got a second chance at a normal life.
I'll do my best to behave here, if I do anything wrong please tell me.
I'm honestly a bit nervous about being here, accidentally making a mistake.

Dear uncollaredgirl

Welcome to After Silence!!

I'm sorry for what you have been through.  I find it is easier to talk on forums then out loud.  Being here has helped me so much, even from the first time I ever posted.  It is still helping me - I have so much support here and I know you will, as well.  Here at AS, we are like a big family and our members are kind and non-judgemental.

I am sending you lots of safe hugs! 

Take care!

Welcome, @uncollaredgirl! I know how hard it must have been to come here, but it also speaks to how brave you are. I haven't posted much here, but just reading different posts has helped. You are human, and you make make a mistake. That is okay. Progress not perfection, right? I am so sorry about what happened to you. There seem to be a lot of good people here. You are not alone. Safe hug, if that's okay.

Hi Uncollaredgirl,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the reasons that bring you here, but do know this community is full of supportive and understanding members. As @Poppy_ mentioned, do not worry so much about making mistakes or doing something wrong. Tho we do have guidelines, everything pretty much comes down to us respecting one another. We rarely have issues with this, so I agree with her, it's not likely to happen. :) 

It's ok to be a little nervous, this is new to you. Remember tho, we all started here too. Unsure of this whole thing...but it gets easier. Take your time and look around. I wish you the very best on your healing journey.

Mary

Hi Uncollaredgirl,

 

I'm new and I'm nervous too. And I already felt better by reading your post. I feel the same way, that I might say something wrong or accidentally hurt someone's feelings.

Hello @Uncollaredgirl,

Welcome to After Silence! There is no need to worry about making mistakes, we all do :)

What happened to you was in no way your fault, and I'm glad to see that you've made a new life for yourself. 

You're not alone, even if you might feel like it sometimes. If you ever need to talk, my PMs are always open.

 

-Connor
