Introducing myself

Recommended Posts

I stumbled across this site a few days ago, and decided to join. I have been having a rough couple of months, and just need a place to talk freely. It's strange how something can bring so many emotions to the surface years, even decades later. I am a happily married mom, and really haven't thought too much about the things that brought me here. But every few years or so, they creep back up to haunt me. It's startling sometimes. I am glad there is a place online where I can talk about it and maintain a bit of privacy.

I am struggling with this same exact thing right now. It is very overwhelming. I just wanted to let you know You are not alone! Welcome to a safe, comfortable place to share what you feel you need to. Sitting with you if that’s ok 💙

Thank you. Is it terrible to say I'm glad I'm not alone in feeling this way? It always surprises me when this happens. Something brings it all back to the surface, and suddenly I feel like I am back at square 1 dealing with the floods of different emotions. It's exhausting. And it leaves me in a funk for months sometimes.

Oh I understand completely. It’s like I’m reading my own thoughts! And no you are not terrible for yearning for someone to understand how you feel. I try to get online every day so I am here to listen to anything you’d like to get off your chest. Sending virtual hugs :hug:if ok. You don’t have to struggle with these bad days alone :)

Dear klady

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! 

Take care!
