Hello everyone,

My SA happened 11 years ago but due to seeing the person who did it to me recently for the first time since the SA, I’ve been flooded with traumatic memories and finding it hard to cope. I have never seen a counsellor but hoping this will be a good first step to healing 💜

Hi sunnyskies,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you experienced 11 years ago, but you have found a very supportive site. I am sorry it cam back after seeing your abuser...a nasty trigger to let you know that what you went thru was wrong and traumatic and it is always sad that they (or the majority of they) still walk around like they are uneffected. You are right, reaching out is a very good and forward step. I do wish you many more of these forward steps as you renew this journey of healing.

Mary
