Overwhelmed

Recommended Posts

Hey! I’m new here, I think I joined a couple of weeks ago. (This is my second post.) I’m just really confused as to how I navigate this website. I don’t know where to go or what to do. I don’t even know how I can view my last post. It’s very overwhelming and I’m getting frustrated. If someone could tell me how to reach other forums on this site and how to view my previous posts, I’d be very thankful. For all of those that reply, thank you in advance.

Welcome @zelda1996 to After Silence.  I’m sorry for what brought you here but I’m happy you are here reaching out for support.  Good job taking this step in your healing process.  You are not alone and what happened to you wasn’t your fault.  Take your time exploring and post when you are ready. 

To see your previous posts, click your username next to any post you have posted.  This will bring you to your profile.  Then from there you can click on the thread title if you want to see if there have been any new posts since you posted.  In addition, when you are viewing a thread you can follow it by clicking the follow button in the upper right corner.  It is slightly below the blue After Silence header.  Following a thread will give you notifications when a reply is posted.  I will be sending you a welcome private message now so you should get a notification about it.  This should help you figure out how notifications work.  If you have any more questions you can reply to that message.

Hi, @zelda1996

Welcome to After Silence! I'm sorry you're feeling so frustrated with the boards - I know how confusing it can be. I'm going to link another forum down below and you can find frequently asked questions as well as board tutorials here! That should help you navigate a little better. And like 8888 said, you can find your own topics on your profile. Hope this helps! If you need anything, I'm just a quick PM away!

Hi Zelda,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you've endured and the struggles you have faced. It is never fair that someone feels they are entitled to hurt another like this, yet here we all are. :(  Do know that you will find a lot of support and understanding here and you are not alone.

I also see that your post count has gone from 2 to 10 in these past hours, so the suggestions my fellow Newbie Support Team members must have helped. It can be very confusing to start, as it is not a small site. I hope the information given you has made you feel more comfortable. Our Team is always here for you.

I am glad that you have reached out and joined our community! I wish you nothing but the best on this journey we call healing.

Mary
