I hope I am doing this right.  I am new to the forum and I'm here to find a place to not be alone.  I am dealing with repressed memories and having them resurface. It's kinda got me all kinds of off kilter.  I am working with a therapist and we have a great working relationship but it doesn't fill that hole of feeling like you are alone in this (even though you know you aren't). I keep wanting to crawl back into my denial bubble as if nothing ever happened but that's not really a bell you can unring. Hopefully this forum will prove to be a safe place to get a little extra connection to others who understand.  Thanks for letting me join you guys.

Thanks @missfrier Its nice to not be alone but in some ways the whole kitten kabootle is extremely frustrating too.  Its like not wanting to have a need to be here but being glad something like this exists at the same time.  Last few months have been rough.

Hello @DenialsNotARiver,

 

Welcome to after silence! I know it can be tough to face memories of sexual assault, but it does get easier. I promise.

Know that you're not alone here, and that there are some of us here that understand what you're going through. If you ever need to talk, my PMs are always open :)

 

-Connor

@snmls and @8888,

Thank you for the warm welcome.  I hope I can break through my own shell and continue to be a part of here.  It's counter to everything I grew up in and outside my comfort norm but I am trying to push past that.

Hi D.
