Hi,

First post here. I hope to be able to tell my story here because for many years, what happened to me has been my greatest source of shame and self hatred. I’ve been in therapy for many years, but I’ve never shared my story with others who’ve been there. 
 

Thanks so much.

Owl

Hi, @veloowl - 

Welcome to After Silence! You can absolutely share your story here whenever you feel ready. There is a forum on here called Share Your Story and it will be unlocked once you reach 10 posts. Those posts can be new topics or responses to other people. If you're looking to get your post count up quickly, the Humor and Silliness forum is a good place for that! 

I'm sorry for all of the shame you have felt. I want you to know that what happened to you was not your fault. We all understand the feelings of self hatred that come with this type of trauma, but I can assure you that we are all here to listen and support you. 

If you need anything, please let me know! 

Hugs and a warm welcome,
Poppy

Welcome @veloowl 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.  As Poppy_ said the Share Your Story forum is perfect for sharing your story once you have ten posts.  Getting to ten posts usually doesn't take too long.  If you have any questions feel free to message me.
