Hi, I’m new here. I’m currently having counselling to help me to understand what happened to me in the past and I am finding it helpful. I’m hoping to find some support from others who have unfortunately been in similar situations and may have some of the same thoughts, feelings and experiences as me.

Hello Charlie,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you have endured and the struggles you face. Many survivors question to understand, so do know you are not alone in what you are going thru.  It take time to process the things that you have gone thru, but you will find understanding and support from a kind community of survivors.

Take your time to look around and feel free to interact when and with what you are comfortable with. There is no pressure. I do wish you many steps forward as you begin to learn and discover your own story and find your way down this path of healing.

Mary

Thank you all for the messages, it is very encouraging and I feel a bit better already! :) It’s awful that there are so many people who have been abused, I wouldn’t wish it on anyone but I think that it will help me to talk to people in similar situations.
