New here and looking for support

Recommended Posts

I am new here. I was SA in February of this year, I am greatful to have this site. 

--+++Trigger warning++++++

It was done by a guy I was seeing and his cousin...

+++++end of sensitive part... (I am not positive I did that right)

Anyway...I have been really struggling with sleep, seems the memories all come when I'm trying to sleep. I have began SI behavior which I've done in the past. I am struggling with friends and family, its like the things I used to love, I don't want to do anymore. I have been keeping so much in and don't really have anyone who understands. Sometimes I feel like I'm a burden on friends because this is something I think about wayyyy too much. Just feel so alone...

Hi Silver,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you have endured and the struggles you have faced. You are not alone. This community is filled with many understand and supportive members. Others who haven't gone thru these things can lack understanding and sometimes feel unsure how support works for a survivor. You won't find that here. You can interact as much as you are comfortable with and we will be here for you.

Your trigger warning is fine. We also have a couple emojis, if you prefer visual display. :triggering: or  :triggering2:. You are free to place them wherever you feel appropriate that might be sensitive to others. We rather more, than less and appreciate you being so considerate of the members of the community. So thank you. 🙂

I am really happy you have found us and decided to join. Wishing you many more forward steps on your path of healing.
