Hi all, I am a survivor, who after years of self destructive relationships,  is finally happily married to a very supportive husband. But I continue to struggle with abuse that began early in my life, so I am hoping to support others as well as receive support myself.

Dear @Beccawife32

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, @Beccawife32 - 

Welcome to After Silence! It’s normal to continue to struggle with abuse even if you’re far along in your healing journey. I was recently talking to someone and mentioned that healing is a lifelong process. It’s almost like, in a way, we will all be healing for the rest of our lives. 

This is a wonderful place to find support and to make progress with healing! I hope as you look around, you’ll find what you’re looking for. 

If you have any questions or need anything at all, please let me know! I’m always here :)  

Hugs,

Poppy

I'm sorry for the abuse you suffered in  your early years, and for the years of destructive relationships.  That is common among survivors.  

I'm happy you found your way here - there are many kind and supportive people in our community happy to help each other heal.

Hello, @Beccawife32,

 

Welcome to after silence! Sorry to hear that you've had to endure the trauma of sexual assault.

The road to recovery is not an easy one, but it is well worth walking. While it may take a long time to recover, it does get easier, I promise. 

What happened to you was NOT your fault, don't beat yourself up about it.

 

If you ever need to talk, i'm here for you.

 

Best wishes!
