Hello to all,

I am new on here. I found this site by accident. I have been struggling for years and drowning without even seeing the water before. Here recently I've become aware of the amount of water I've fallen into and I am here to seek others to help me through it  although none of my " events" are recent, they have become made aware recently and I feel as though they just happened to me. I hope I'm in the right place to be able to use my voice. So many times I've tried but the last time I did, I was taken " for a ride" so to speak and left picking up the wreckage. My words were used against me because they expressed weakness and I'm terrified to even chip at the ice burg until I know this site is legit safe to reveal my darkest hours .. anyway I can get confirmation on this would be extremely grateful. These secrets need to come out. I just dont want to keep saying them to the wrong crowd

Hi Skysthelimit,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the truama you've endured and the struggles you face. It matters not how long ago you experienced something bad, not if the struggles are now hitting you full force. Many of us are older survivors, including myself, trying to find a way down this path of healing. You are not alone.

Be assured this is a safe place and you will not be judged or pressured in any way. You are free to share what you like, when you like. Take your time and look around. You will see that this is a truly understanding group of survivors.

I am sorry you have reasons to be here. Do know acceptance and validation and support is what we offer. Wishing you nothing but forward steps on this journey we call healing.

Mary

Welcome to AS, Sky!  :) 

I'm glad you found this site by chance. :)  I am hopeful that by now, it feels less like an accidental find and more like a sign that perhaps this is meant to be a part of your healing process.

Looking forward to getting to know you!

Best wishes,
Capulet

Hi, @Skysthelimit19 - 

Welcome to After Silence! I'm sorry you have been drowning lately - I understand that feeling all too well. You are absolutely in the right place to share your story and to speak out about what happened to you if that's what your desire is. I can assure you that this site is very safe. Only registered members have access to the boards and can see what you post (unless you post in a public forum). I'm hoping that you will feel the liberty to share whatever you'd like here. We are all here with open arms wanting to support you. 

I hope you're feeling welcome here and enjoying the site so far. If you have any questions or concerns or if you need someone to talk to, me door is always open. Send me a message any time! I'm wishing you all the best on your healing journey. I hope that we can help in some way :)  

Warm wishes,
Poppy
