Hello, my name is Alexis. I am 16 years old. I was raped when I was 8 and I have been addicted to older men since then. I have been trying to get help for awhile but can't find the right help. So I was hoping to get some help on here?

Hi Alexis,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am sorry for the trauma you endured at 8 years old. It was wrong for anyone to do that to you and not your fault. You will find tons of support here. Our members are understanding and kind. Abuse can cause so many different reactions and many times they are confusing. Especially when exposed so young.

We are here for you. Take your time and look around. When you feel ready, feel free to interact. You will never be pressured or judged.

Wishing you well on this journey of healing.

Hey, @Alexis (Lexi)! I am so sorry that you went through that—especially at such a young age. You did not deserve to be treated that way, and you are not responsible for that person’s absolutely egregious actions. I’m glad that you found this place and hope that our support gives you some comfort and peace. You are not alone in this. We are all here to listen to whatever you feel comfortable sharing. Please reach out if you need or want anything. Thinking of you and offering safe hugs, if okay. :bighug:

I’m Remington... (Remi). I’m 18, and I think I may also be addicted to much older men...
