Newbie here

Hi everyone,

I’m HJM and I’m new here so thought I’d introduce myself. 

In real life I have a love of music and hope I can find some like minded souls here. 

I look forward to getting to know you all!

Welcome to AfterSilence.  I’m sorry for what brought you here but I’m happy you are here reaching out for support.  Good job taking this step in your healing process.  You are not alone and what happened to you wasn’t your fault.  Take your time exploring and post when you are ready.  Be sure to check out our music forum under amusement alcove.  We've got a healing through creativity forum which can have some lyrics sometimes too.

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!

Hi missfrier,

thank you for your lovely message. I know exactly what you mean about talking out loud - it’s so hard! Thank you for the hugs, sending them back to you too if ok (((hug)))

Hi Mave

thank you for your message. It is lovely that members come out in force to welcome us newbies! I have a very eclectic music taste but I play saxophone so particularly enjoy anything with a sax in it!

Hi HJM,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry you have reason to be here, but glad you have found your way here. It is a wonderful community with supportive and kind members. Take your time to look around, I am sure you will not feel so alone. This was my first "stepping out" moment and all I can say is I am so glad that I did. I hope you will feel the same. Wishing you the best on this journey we call healing.

Mary

Welcome, @HJM!

I'm sorry for the experiences that brought you here, but you have found a friendly and supportive community full of understanding survivors.  I can confirm that there are many of us here who love music (myself included).  

We have several threads dedicated to music/enrichment, like the amusement alcove.  

Feel free to look around and post whenever you feel comfortable.
