Hello all, 

I have mixed feelings about being here. I wish there was no need for this forum to exist, yet I am glad it does. I was raped in March of this year and subsequently diagnosed with PTSD. Life has been a struggle since. I am looking forward to being part of such a supportive community.

Hi @leeny

Welcome to AS.  I completely understand the mixed feelings.  While I wish we all had a reason not to be here, I'm at least glad that we all have a safe space to support each other.  I'm sorry about what happened to you.  Please know that I believe you and that it was not your fault.  I hope you end up finding this site to be as helpful as I do.

Hi leeny,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you experienced just a few months ago. Nobody ever has the right to hurt another in this way. Sadly there is a need for this place to exist, but it's also a relief to not be walking this path alone. You are not alone. Take your time and look around and do know that support and understanding are around each corner. I wish you the very best as you walk this path of healing.
