Hi jellybean,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the trauma you have experienced earlier this year, but do know that you will find tons of support. This community is filled with understanding and kind individuals. You are not alone.

What happened to you was wrong and not your fault. I know that struggles tend to find us, but I know being here makes me less alone. We are never judged and always validated by others. I think it's truly a gift to be where others can relate and where you are safe. I'm sure you will see this too, as you look around.

It takes courage to reach out and courage to join. I hope it is one of many steps forward you will taking on this healing journey.

Mary

Welcome @jellybean1982  to After Silence.  I’m sorry for what brought you here but I’m happy you are here reaching out for support.  Good job taking this step in your healing process.  You are not alone and what happened to you wasn’t your fault. 

I'm autistic so you're not the only one here with a disability.  In fact we even have a Disabled Survivors Discussion Board which I will link below.

http://www.aftersilence.org/forum/index.php?/topic/135180-disabled-survivors-discussion-board/

Take your time exploring here and post when you are ready.  You can PM me if you have any questions about navigating the site or anything else.
