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.

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 :)
