Hi everyone, 

I just wanted to introduce myself quickly here as I’m brand new to this forum and although I’m a fairly anxious person by nature, I’m looking forward to coming out of my shell a bit and working through my stuff. A close friend of mine recommended this forum and by looking through quickly I can see how supportive and positive this space is! 
I’m a survivor of multiple assaults dating back ten years and have always put healing on the back burner until now.
I look forward to the next steps in my journey and getting to connect with fellow survivors!

Hi Offwing.

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry you experienced multiple assaults and are struggling with the healing part. Many of us do. It is much better tho, to have others who really understand and I am glad you have seen how supportive everyone is. It's not an illusion. We are here for each other and for you. I am happy you had a friend that suggested you join us. I do wish you the very best on your journey of healing.

Mary
