Nervous and Alone

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone I'm Saoirse. I'm very nervous about posting here.  After only 5 months since I was attacked on a work night out , a new promotion and being a 'key worker' during the lockdown in the early stages I was able to focus work rather then me. how ever many weeks it has been now I have become so closed off to people round me I don't know to begin to start opening up again.

I'm just so tired of being alone with this I'm hoping to find some support here

Hi Saoirse, I'm glad you found this site. I joined a few months ago and have found people to be very encouraging. I'm so sorry for what happened to you. You didn't deserve that and it was definitely NOT your fault. I understand how easy it is to become closed off to people. Just know that you're not alone here. Take your time getting to know this site and know that there are people on here, including me, who are here to support you.

@Empty TearsHi Saoirse, I sometimes feel very closed off to others and feel tired of being alone. I feel like I desperately want to be close to others but at the same time I'm afraid and feel a lot of shame when I start to get close to people. You've been able to reach out to us, so you have started opening up.

Hi Saoirse,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry to hear what you experienced just 5 months ago. It is never right for anyone to hurt you this way. I do hope you know that you did nothing wrong. You will find support here and please know you are not alone. We have many here at different stages of the healing process from old and new experiences. They are a good group and are very understanding and kind.

I am glad you have taken the first steps to reach out. Many of us try to deny it, but as you already noticed denial can cause it's own set of issues. I am sure lockdown to has caused it's own issues.

Feel free to look around the site. Interact where you are comfortable and do know...we've all been new before. You will face no judgment or pressure from anyone here. I wish you the very best as you begin your journey down this path of healing.

Mary
