Hi!

Recommended Posts

Hi! I’ve been having a tough few months; I’m not sure what I can do about it. A long time ago, I was raped and assaulted over the period of about a year. I thought I was fine, but I’ve been getting less and less sleep; I have these lows where I feel very sad. Very few people know about this time in my life, and I am not one to talk about my feelings. I did some research and found this forum, so I’m glad to be able to express myself here without talking to people I know.

Welcome @L.rain. I had to comment because I am actually dealing with this very same thing at this time in my life and actually went through something similar it sounds like. This is a very open, comforting site to help you on your healing journey. So many forums about so many topics and I’m sure you’ll find a lot here that is helpful. One of them being, you are not alone! I hope this site can bring some relief and comfort to you in your time of need. Sitting with you if ok 💜

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry that you endured trauma over a year's period of time.

Take your time looking around and feel free to interact with what you are comfortable with. I wish you nothing but forward healing steps on your journey.
