Hey I’m Remi. I’m a senior in high school and music is life. It’s basically all I have left. I’m not sure I’m ready to share my story yet, but I recently learned that I suffer from ptsd. I’ve lost pretty much every friend I had because I’m “too much.” I was told to go to group therapy, but the idea gives me crazy anxiety. I’ve been looking for my own support and found this. Right now I just feel alone in the world and it scares me.

Hi, @RemiRae28 - 

Welcome to After Silence! I'm sorry you're dealing with so much right now. Unfortunately, I understand exactly how you feel. I had a lot of people quit on me because I was "too much" and everyone kept telling me to go to therapy. It felt like I wasn't worth anyone's time and I was being thrown aside....like I was beyond help. This was especially true when i was a senior in High School so I can relate a lot to how you're feeling! Just know that no one here will ever think you are "too much" or that you're not worth our time. You are valued and we are here to support you in your healing! 

It's one thousand percent okay if you're not ready to share your story yet. There's absolutely no pressure to share anything that you don't want to share! Take your time getting comfortable and share whatever you want whenever you feel you want to. There's no time frame :) 

If you need anything, please feel free to reach out to me any time! 

Wishing you the best,
Poppy

After spending some time on the forums you will see that you are not alone. You will heal. There is no pressure to share your story. It is your story to tell and only you decide when it gets told.

Hi RemiRae,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you have endured, but glad that you have found us. You are not alone. I am sorry that you haven't had the support that you have needed, but you will find much here. We understand much of what you feel and what you are going thru. I understand about the therapy, anxiety about it can be overwhelming. Perhaps it will be in your future, but you will not be judged for making the decision not to go right now.

We are with you. Wishing you the best as you beginning your journey down the path of healing.

Mary
