Hi - introducing myself


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm new here.  I got out of an abusive relationship last year and up until COVID happened was having support sessions with a DV counselor.  I've been struggling some recently due to unavoidable interactions with my ex and am looking forward to having a place where I can share with people who understand.

Hi fiercekitten (love the name!),

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry you were involved in an abusive relationship, but happy you were able to get out. I do wish that you didn't have to interact with him and hopefully that will come in time. You have found a truly supportive site with many understanding and supportive members. You are not alone.

Feel free to look around the site. You can interact when and where you feel most comfortable. I am glad you decided to join our community and wish you the best on many steps forward on this journey of healing.

Hello @fiercekitten and welcome to After Silence. I am sorry you have to see your abusive ex :( that must be very triggering for you. I hope you are able to continue to see you DV counselor soon- it seems like that was a great source of support for you. The forums here are also full of extremely supportive members and resources about so many things- DV being one of them. I hope you are able to find comfort here in knowing that you are not alone. Sending you support!

:supportu:

Dear feircekitten

Welcome to After Silence!!

I'm sorry for what you have been through.  I find it is easier to talk on forums then out loud.  Being here has helped me so much, even from the first time I ever posted.  It is still helping me - I have so much support here and I know you will, as well.  Here at AS, we are like a big family and our members are kind and non-judgemental.

I am sending you lots of safe hugs! 

Take care!
