Hi everyone. I am going through some tough times right now. With the help of a wonderful trauma therapist, I have recently discovered that my past experiences were indeed assault/rape. This is a tough label. I'm sad right now and hoping things get better. I'm glad I found this space.

Hi @Martha1989

Welcome to AS.  I'm sorry for the trauma in your life that brought you here, but I'm glad you found the site.  I'm happy to hear that you are working with a therapist and have begun to work through some of your past trauma.  It can be hard to acknowledge and accept that the events that occurred to use were in fact rape.  It can be a lot to process and carry.  While things are difficult now, you will heal from those experiences with time.  We are all here to support you throughout your healing journey and you are welcome to post and share whenever you feel comfortable. You can reach out anytime.  I hope you end up finding this site to be as helpful as I do.

Dear @Martha1989,

I'm happy you reached out to us, and sorry about feeling sad.  I think we can all relate - we know about trauma, therapy, assault and sadness.

Welcome to our community - I hope you find some camaraderie, peace and comfort.

Blessings,

Gold Raindrops
