Hello, I'm new here. I checked out the forums here a little bit last year when I made an account but I didn't really feel comfortable then. I think I'm ready now. I'm a little scared but I wanted to post to say hi.

Hi healingstar,

A warm welcome to you. I am very sorry you have reasons to be here, but do know you will be supported. Our members are kind and understanding. You are not alone.

You will not be the first that hesitated at first, but returned when you were ready. Everyone's right time is different, I am just glad that you think now is the time. There is a benefit to interacting with others who really know the struggles you face. Do know you will not be pressured to share more than you want and that we do validate what you went thru. You are worthy of healing.

I wish you well as you travel down this path we call healing.

Mary

Hi, healingstar!!!  Welcome to the site.  I'm hoping you recognize what a big step it was to say hello and introduce yourself!  I know it can sometimes take a little time before we've built up the courage to post, but I do hope that being here brings you peace, comfort and healing.

We support you.  :)  You aren't alone.

Best wishes,
Capulet

Hi, @healingstar - 

Welcome to After Silence! I know it can be intimidating to post here. I lurked for a while before making my first post too! You are definitely not alone there :) I hope that you're feeling a bit more comfortable and welcome here now that you've taken that first step! For me, I found that it was easier for me to respond to others' posts instead of starting my own at first. Hopefully the more you're here, the more comfortable you will feel. 

If you need anything at all, I'm around! Feel free to message me any time you'd like :) 

Wishing you all the best,
Poppy
