Dear blue_ peach: 

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! :hug:

Take care!

@Poppy_ @8888 @snmls @silentg @MeBeMary and @missfrier I can't thank you enought for your kind words! When I read your answers made me feel for the first time after months that I am not alone and a hope for understanding and peace. I hope it will be true and i will be finally be healed a little bit or more. I know there are strong and difficult stories and maybe mine will be lighter but for me it is so hard to deal with.. I don't know how to talk about it here, I am trying to find the way and my way to share it and I thank you once again about you encouranging answers! :) 

Did any of you ever felt exposed and scared? that maybe someone could understand who you are and for what you'been talking about? cause I have this fear as well even if I know that here are people all over the world, still fear is fear..

I have felt exposed and scared.  I think that's a pretty normal feeling for survivors.

Hello again, how are you? if you want, I wanna know how you get away from this fear. Yes it is normal I guess too for survivors.. I think it will go away slowly right?

I'm alright thanks.  Take it slow but if you can push yourself just a little to improve.  It's important not to push yourself too hard though.  Posting here is a great step.  Also for me therapy has been helpful with this.

I have therapy as well.. unfortunately this years,when this thing happened to me I had to change therapist,actualy I changed two,because my old therapist she was pregnant and she didn't want to continue with her job.. so it was really hard for me to find a new one to trust all over again and the same time talk about what I've been going throught and myself and life before that. It is so hard to trust a new person, to feel comfortable and safe but still I am trying to improve this feeling,this fear and thank you for your advice.it's so true. It needs to go step by step and I hope one day it will be better. :)

I too have had trouble trusting new therapists.  I hope you find one you are able to trust soon.
