Hello :)

Hi I'm Abby, I'm new to the website, I'm only 16 so I never really thought I'd be on something like this but here I am I guess. It's amazing to me that there's a welcoming community like this for something that we don't talk about as a society. Even in school my occurance was brushed off and treated as less than it was with little justice, so after nearly a year I'm seeking help in online forums I suppose. There's not much else for me to say, but I figured a "hello, I'm new here" post was something I should do.

Dear @InfiniteAbby

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!

Abby,

So glad you're here and have chosen to look for a voice online. I don't know what you've been through, but it doesn't matter. This is a safe, caring place for those of us that have had to endure the shit that has been done to us. The main thing I want to say is that IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT!! No matter what, keep that in mind!

So glad you're here!!

Hi @InfiniteAbby

Welcome to AS.  I'm sorry for what happened you and I'm sorry that your school did not treat it seriously.  What happened was not your fault and you did not deserve it.  I'm glad you found the site.  This is a safe space and we are all here to support each other.  You welcome to post whenever you feel comfortable.  I look forward to seeing you around the forum, and I hope you end up finding the site as helpful as I do.

Hello there, @InfiniteAbby! I'd like to offer a bright, sunny welcome to our community. :aswelcomesu:

I am truly sorry what has brought you here and wish that there was more I could do. No one deserves to be treated that way, and you did nothing to ask for it. What happened is not your fault, and you are a person completely and utterly worthy of love, kindness, and respect. I am even more sorry to hear that other people brushed what happened to you off. We are all here to support you, and we will listen to you and not treat it as anything less than significant trauma. We are here to help you. Please let me know if you need anything. Welcome again!
