Hi Akiraotome,

Welcome to AfterSilence.  I am very sorry for what you endured that led you here, but do know that you will find tons of support. Our members are understanding and kind. I do understand the nervousness in just exactly what might be comfortable in sharing, but do know there is no pressure. Many will not even decide to talk about specific things, but perhaps of the struggles or feeling related to those things. It is really up to you. Regardless this is a welcoming community and perhaps just by reading a little at first might make you feel  you can relate and not feel so alone with all the scary stuff inside. Wishing you the best in this journey we call healing.

Hi all, I am happy to have found this space.

I went through a really dark hole after I was raped and it eventually led me into addiction and suicidal thoughts.
I know I have found much healing over the years through great support systems but I do know that I still have parts of myself that need complete healing.
I have a daughter now and I don't want to pass on any toxic energies or behaviors.  

Hi Pinkest, welcome to AS. I am sorry for what you have been through. My daughter's are 48 and 44. I have not passed any of my toxic energies on them. They are strong women.

Hi, @Akiraotome -

I know how hard it is to talk about certain things but I hope you will find this to be a safe place where you feel you CAN talk about those things if you want to. No pressure to share here. Just post whatever you want, whenever you're ready to do so. You are definitely not alone. 

If you need anything, please don't hesitate to let me know! I'm always around.

Hi, I'm new and I'm not sure how to introduce myself. It's hard to talk about specific things. But I needed know I'm not alone. I hope this helps me put everything in my head together. 

Hi Akiraotome

You are definitely NOT alone.  You are really brave in posting. I didn't (and many times don't) know how to verbalize things... And that that is totally ok.


I am glad you are here.

Safe hugs if that is OK
