This is me

Hello, 

My name is heather and I am 25 years old. Over the last 10 years I thought I was healing and thought i had moved past what happened to me but it wasn't until recently i realized that wasn't the case. Now I am ready and I feel like my story can really help people. My therapist told me to find support groups so here I am.

Hi, @Survive4 - 

Welcome to After Silence! I'm sorry for the trauma you endured that brought you here. Healing is difficult and I know how hard it is when you feel like you've made so much progress, just to find yourself taking steps backwards. Just know that you are not alone here and we all want to help you in your healing journey. I know your story will help others here! I'm glad your T recommended finding groups and you found yourself here :)  

If you need anything at all, just let me know! 

Wishing you all the best,
Poppy

Hi there,

im kinda in a similar boat. For years I thought I could just move past this but recently I’ve been talking more with my close friends and having someone to talk to has made me feel a lot better, and I thought a support system like this would help a lot. Just had my first post too!

Hello Heather, 

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am sorry for the trauma you’ve experienced, but you will find much support here. I am glad your therapist told you to reach out to a group like ours, as I find it personally very helpful to be with others who undeRstand. I wish you the best as you walk down this path of healing.
